What a great weekend! I earned a $50 gift card for participating in a study at the Journalism School (Thanks, Jenny Porter!), did a little shopping for our vacation (Ahhhh, Disney!! So excited!), and then a trip to http://www.childrensmuseum.org/ on Sunday.
The Indianapolis Children's Museum is truly one of the greatest things about Indy (well, you know, other than my parent's and Dennis' parents living there!). Even as an adult I have a good time looking at the Indiana pond, playing with the boats, riding the carousel, and watching Lex run all over the place like a crazy man. We have a museum membership, which rocks, because if Lex isn't feeling it, we don't have to stay. Just the general admission without the membership is ridiculous. I think it's like $12/person, and kids are $10 or something. I'm sure that's not right, but the fact of the matter is, it's hella expensive. And if Lex is pissy or shitty (or some other bodily function) and isn't down with hanging out there, we can abandon ship and we're not really out anything other than the gas it takes to drive up there.
Thus far, though, he's been completely down with it. Sunday mornings are the best because everyone is in church (we're HEATHENS and it RAWKS!) at 10a when they open, and we and the rest of the heathens have it to ourselves. He can run through the exhibits, and I don't have to make sure he's going to get mixed up with a crowd of people and I won't be able to find him.
We had a great weekend, and we're really looking forward to Jolly Days at the Museum!
