We decided to stay in the great state of Indiana for break. At first we were bummed but then...
Day One: FREE Tour of Caprini Creamery. A few weeks ago a local goat farmer invited us to take a tour of their farm and learn how goat cheese is made. Look at those little faces below. Thanks to the great family of Caprini Creamery. Buy their cheese. After our trip we stopped at Books & Brews to play some games.
Day Two: FREE entry to Yellowwood with a stop at Story Inn. The rolling hills of southern Indiana make this an adventure worth taking. Yellowwood is at risk of no longer being protected. I understand both sides of this issue, but when we arrived at this beautiful piece of land it was a quick decision. We should protect it so our children can one day enjoy it with their children. It's beautiful.
Day Three-Four: Staycation trip to Fourwinds. $99 per night. Indoor pool. Lake view. On-site restaurant. It was a great getaway. Another mom told me they do $49 specials Jan-March specials on Cyber Monday.
Day Five: Children's Museum new outdoor park. We have a family membership here. This new addition is incredible. It represents all sports teams in Indianapolis. I'm not sure which one of us had more fun. Of all the memberships, this place is most worth it for us.
Day Six: Zoo. Lunch at Bru Burger. Many of the animals were hibernating, it was a little chilly, but the dolphin show made the trip worth it. They integrate conservation into this. They do a sliding scale on tickets.
Day Seven: Indianapolis Museum of Art. Kids 5 and under free. Adults $18. Kids 6+ $10. I was worried Jack may get bored here so I brought an Easter egg to hide on the grounds. IT WORKED! Imagine that. :) We had lunch at 20 Tap and dessert at the Gallery Pastry shop. You can sit at the bar and watch them make pastries. PS. It's next door to the new location of Mass Ave Toy Shop.
