The first time I heard about the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis was on Labor Day a month into my first year of law school. Addie and Casey were going to go to the Museum for the first time with family friends who had also moved to Indianapolis from Salt Lake City for law school. Casey told me we were all going to go for the day and I told her that wouldn’t be happening. I had to study for class and our regular pattern throughout law school was set.
I had no idea how much the Children’s Museum would help Casey survive law school. She would go there with Addie on days where she needed to get out and be with grownups. She would go there on days when she didn’t think she could handle Addie all by herself. And she wasn’t alone, either. Many of the neighboring students’ wives also went to the Children’s Museum for the same reasons as Casey.
Now Casey doesn’t go to the Children’s Museum as much. I’m home a lot more than I used to be and Casey gets to go out with adults a lot more than she used to be able to do. But now our roles have a reversed a bit thanks to Casey’s travel schedule. When Casey’s away, I need the chance to get out to have a little help with Vivi and the Children’s Museum is the perfect place.
The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis is the largest Children’s Museum in the United States and it’s a great place to take the kids and just let them explore for hours and Vivi has become a huge fan.
Here are some photos from Vivi’s first visit:
