Indy Day #2 Grant and Mommy

Since we knew that Grant wouldn't' enjoy the Colts game for the price of the tickets...we opted to have Grant and I head to the Children's Museum while the other two were at the game.  We got there a little after it opened...and we went non-stop all day long.  That museum is heaven for 4 year olds.

It was still set up for the Jolly Days first off we went down the giant slide.

Then we were off to dig for dinosaur bones and see all the dinosaurs.

We explored the Jolly Days exhibit which included fishing.

We drove the Indy race car...

And spent a ton of time in the new playscape.  It had be redone and just opened a few months ago.  Grant loved climbing

and was FASCINATED by the ball thing-a-ma-gig.

We headed back to Jolly Days to have a snowball fight!

And then..after lunch...we found the giant Rube Goldberg Machine (aka, the ball thing-a-ma-gig)
He must have stood there for over an hour watching all the balls...and was especially thrilled when he got to participate and put the balls back into the cycle.

We dug in mulch...and...
surprisingly ran into best buds and neighbors Kael and it was extra special to play a little with them!

 We left around 4:30 to go pick up the big boys...and we could have stayed for 4 more hours.  It was a great day with just Grant and it was great that he got to do whatever HE wanted to do.  It was HIS day.  Hopefully we all can go back...before he grows up too much more!
