Anyway, he's leaving on Jan 31 to go to Charleston, SC for some training and he'll be gone for around 9 weeks. In fact, Lord willing, he comes back the day before his birthday. So, we've been looking around for things to do with the kids before he leaves. We researched Disney on Ice and Monster Jam (and, if I'm honest, I bet my kids would have liked Monster Jam better lol) and decided that the tickets were just out of our budget at the moment. So, we finally settled on the Indianapolis Children's Museum. It's one of the top children's museums in the country and it's only about an hour away so we spent the day there on Saturday.

Dieter's favorite thing to do was the planetarium. I didn't get any pictures of him in there, but when we told him we were going to watch a movie of the stars he was super excited. We got inside and he said, "mommy, where's the TV?" The Mr. and I both tried to explain that the ceiling was the TV, but he didn't get it until it actually started. That boy loves him some planets and stars!
Rylea's favorites were in the Dino exhibit. She got to dig for dinosaur bones like a paleontologist, and seeing all the big dinosaur skeletons was pretty impressive too.
