Indy Trip Day 1

The week before Fourth of July weekend Mark's parent's asked us to go on a last minute trip to Indianapolis, IN with them. Mark, Wyatt, and I had made the trip when Wyatt was about 4 months old but they wanted to go themselves. There is an a nationally ranked zoo and Children's Museum both within miles of each other. The drive isn't that bad so we loaded up and headed for a fun filled quick weekend trip!

We left Friday afternoon around 1:00. We had to drive 2 cars...Mark's parent's, Kirsten (his sister) and us all piled in with all our junk luggage. The drive is about 4.5 hours. We arrived at the hotel that night and all wanted to just lay low.



We ordered pizza from a place suggested by the front desk. It was so good! We played with Wyatt and watched t.v. We all headed to our rooms around 9pm (Wyatt was wild because he slept so long in the car). We stayed in the same hotel as last time...it's so nice. Each room has a mini kitchen. So fun! Wyatt did so well in the crib. Another reason I am so thankful we choose to "address sleep" the way we have. As soon as we laid him down in the crib he was out and slept soundly most of the night. Such a blessing to know he feels so comfortable to be able to sleep in an unfamiliar place.

The next morning we headed to the zoo....



We rode the train, pet sharks, looked at lots of animals, ate Popsicle's, watched a dolphin show, and even got to watch an elephant get a bath.



The weather was great. Wyatt was such a sweetheart too! He loves seeing all the animals. He isn't afraid of anything...which is sometimes good but sometimes bad. Ha!



There are already too many pictures so I will do a seperate post with dinner and our evening. ;) Happy Friday everyone.....have a great weekend!
