Day 1--drove to Columbus and took Andrew to Chucky Cheese (this was on my summer bucket list) Tim and I both have fond memories of going here as a kid so it was something we wanted Andrew to at least experience . . . not quite as nice as we remembered but we all still had a good time.
Day 2--spent some time in the morning at a brand new gaming place near Mr. R house (and near my sister Shannons' house) in a bounce area. Emma and Andrew had a good time bouncing and exploring.
Met up with my sister and brother in law and the kids for lunch and playtime for the kids at Chick-fil-a which was another unexpected meeting that just worked out time wise . . . so happy to visit with them even if it was just for an hour! Traveled the rest of the way to Indianapolis and spent the rest of the evening relaxing as a family at the hotel just swimming and playing together.
Now THIS hot wheels car . . . ANY woman would love!! :-) Made completely out of diamonds!!
How I became a Pirate!
My favorite part of the day . . . without question . . . was the play we went to. #1 highlighting a children's book--some of my favorite things!!, #2 about pirates one of Andrew's favorites right now, #3 live theater-and a musical no less (my OTHER favorite), #4 sitting in AC, comfy chairs and sleeping baby!!!
We had a really nice day and were blessed to spend it with our college friends Chris, Lia, Becky and Emma, Draven and Calli! What a day of friendship and seeing new things. Quite different than the last time a group of us Cedarville grads went to this museum . . . pre kids! We also had a first for our family . . . this museum was so big that we didn't even finish it. There were at least two areas we did not even look in let alone have time to visit!! The pictures do not do it justice because I didn't even show you the dinosaurs, the carousel, the playhouse area, the dollhouses or many other things we saw. Truly a HUGE place. The fact that so much of this particular museum is traveling exhibits, it really would be different every time you go there! We were impressed and enjoyed it very much! Can't wait to see everyone elses pictures of the day!
