i am never able to tell who enjoys who's company more - grandma or owen. :)
we had unusually nice weather for our springtime visit. it seems it's usually cold and/or flooded & rainy when we go back this time of year, so it was a pleasant surprise to have sunshine and dry ground.
a couple of months ago, one of their sheep had triplets(!), so we were able to feed the babies with bottles this time. owen has become a bit more timid of the sheep as he's gotten older, but really enjoyed the little ones.
of course, no trip to indiana is complete without a trip to pizza king. it became extra special with one of my very best friends from junior high and her daughter joining us. i held riley in the hospital a day after she was born at 4 lbs! it's hard to believe how much she's grown.
one of our most anticipated activities planned during this visit was a trip to the indianapolis children's museum. after paying a visit to kansas city's children's museum, i was a bit disappointed by comparison to the one i'd grown up visiting with my grandparents.
as it turns out, i was just fortunate to live so close to indy's. after some internet research, i quickly found that the indy museum is ranked top 10 - and quite often ranked 1st - in the country for children's museums.
it really is an incredible museum. there are 5 or 6 levels, and each with so much to see. we didn't get to see everything; there's more than an almost-3-year-old can squeeze in during one visit.
they had a temporary super hero exhibit in town during our visit - perfect timing for my super hero lovin' little guy.
there were some ladies who made my visit extra sweet. always love getting to see my hometown loves.
grandma is a really good playmate.
