Indianapolis Grandbaby Fix


Finally! 
First of all, I am finally blogging again!
Yay!  My laptop is taking a charge...keep your fingers crossed....
Secondly, We (Sorcha and I and my Mom)  finally got to travel to Indy to see
the most adorable little grand baby ever...
Wren!  

Be warned, there are TONS of pics in this blog...
She is just sooooo cute!
and smart...
and sweet...
and clever...
and (well, you get it...I was totally enthralled by her!)

When our bathroom was completed
(remember it was totally gutted and rebuilt...a blog for another day)
we made our get-a-way,
So  after almost 600 miles,
breakfast with Lee in the Dells,

and several stops
 (Great Grandma Charlotte needs to stretch a lot)

We finally arrived just as Shae and Wren were starting their 
bed time routine.

reading books...

checking us out...
and all the gifts people back home sent for her.
Here she is clutching a bag of barrettes from my sister,
Auntie Stacy.
I bribed her with my necklace 

 checking out Great Grandma....
 and Auntie Sorcha...
 Just look at that face!

Bath time
 More books
 and goodnight kisses
 she loved Sorcha!
 We laughed ourselves silly when Wren crawled into Sorcha's lap
and signed tentatively and hopefully for milk!
Ha!  

Tuesday morning piggy tails
didn't stay in long...

 Great Grandma joined us again.
Wren did not like her dark classes and cried
every time GG came in the room....

Wren already knows how to "swipe" the ipad to change
the screen...amazing!


I LOVE this little family!
Chris worked most of the time so I was glad
to get this pic....
 This is Chris' brother, Matt; sister-in-law, Josie; and
their baby, Macy!

 More Sorcha time...
 and goofy Mama...

 Chris' parents, Wren's Grandpa and Grandma Tilson

Kiss good night...

Wednesday we visited the Farmers' Market...
Love that this pic has the monument right in the background...



 This is Wren's Auntie Donna (Grandma Tilson's sister)
She works for a honey "factory"
Yummy!

Wren's first LETTERBOX!
It was called Giraffes in the Round
It was found right across the street from the monument  
in the rather large round-a-bout
 This statue is really a lady...a real lady

We then went to the Children's Museum
AWESOME!!!!!
 There are 4 floors of learning and imagination!

Bumble Bee greeted us!

Here is a HUGE water clock

This is the FIREWORKS of GLASS
later in the blog you will see pics of us UNDERNEATH it...
COOL!

Our first official "room" was the HOT WHEELS room...
GG and Wren are watching the racing lights...

Playing with hot wheels
 These are life size hot wheels...NICE!


Wren loved DRIVING!



Our second "room" was the Egypt area.
I loved how we had to walk into the plane first...
 What a short flight!


 Finally we landed....

 Wren loved the little oven and the flat bread...
 She fed this donkey over and over...
but she did not want to ride on him!






Riding on a crocodile!



Taking a lunch break,
we packed a lunch...MMMMMM!

Our 3rd stop was the dinosaur room....





One of my favorite areas was the 
digging for fossils area...
 Just look at my little paleontologist 







 Sorcha liked this one...one of the newest dinosaur finds
named after Harry Potter books


Next time I wish to visit here....the clay soldiers of  China

This was my favorite....

We actually stepped INTO a kaleidoscope...
 We had to lay on this bench that turned around and around
I am a dork!

 This is what we saw....
AMAZING!!!!!!






These dinosaurs are outside looking in....
How cool!


 Thursday morning we made playdo...
at first Wren thought we were crazy smooshing it.
But soon she got the hang of it!
 We also played with side walk chalk.
But man, it was HOT and DRY in Indy.
Almost all the lawns are completely brown.
And no one can water without a huge fine.
Water shortages are scary!


Tadadada!   Wren is going to be a big sister in December!

We were lucky enough to go with Wren and Shae to the library program
they attend every Thursday.
Here she is doing Itsy Bitsy Spider.
I tell you, she is so SMART!



 Cousins at the library...

 Aw....

Our time went too fast!
Here is our last good bye snuggle....

I soooo miss this little girl!
But Shae and Chris and Wren will be home in August.
YAY!!!!
