Children's Museum....

Last Saturday morning, The girls and I decided we were going to have a girl's day and go to the zoo.  On the way there, I noticed a serious amount of increased traffic, numerous helicopters flying overhead and many delays.  Before leaving the house, I had heard on the news that the Indy 500 Mini-Marathon was being raced downtown, but it didn't even cross my mind that we wouldn't be able to get to the zoo due to the road closures.  I quickly popped out my GPS and started trying to figure out how to get around the mess.  The girls were disappointed but I quickly suggested that we find a park and go play.  In my chaos of trying to get out of downtown, I somehow ended up by the Children's Museum.  I suggested to the girls that we go there instead.  They were happy to oblige.  I was happy that they weren't to upset by the change of plans!!

We spent nearly four hours at the Children's Museum.  It was fun just to spend some quality Momma time with my kiddos.  My pictures from my phone aren't great, but here they are, all un-edited:

Alexis asked me what this "thing" was.  She didn't believe me when I told her it was an old phone. 

The indoor carousel was a huge hit.  We rode it twice, since there was no line.  Above photos were the first time:  Alexis chose the horse and Addison chose the goat.  I wish Addison's photo was a little clearer.  Love her giving me the thumbs up!

It's definitely race month here in Indy.  You can't go anywhere without seeing Indy 500 garb.  The girls were stoked to sit in a real life sized Indy car.  I was actually quite surprised at how small these cars really are.

The water area in the playskape is always a hit with the girls.

My girls have always loved music.  We spent almost 45 minutes in the music room.

The climbing tree...

Carousel, take two!  The both chose horses this time. 
It was one of those days that seriously exhausted me, but also one of those days that I didn't want to end!  Love these two to pieces!!
