Connor Prairie - Indianapolis

On Sunday, my training was over at noon, so we spent the afternoon at Connor Prairie which was one of the high point's of our trip.
It is sponsored by the Smithsonian Institute and it was full of hands-on activities for all four of the kids.  There were multiple areas for us to explore, including Native Americans, colonial time, pioneer times and the Civil War era.  Each area had people in character from that time period and as we interacted with them they never left character.
Both girls learned to use stilts, and LE even competed in a tomahawk throw.  We made hand-dipped candles and learned how to use a loom.  If we go back to Indy, we definitely be returning here and making sure to arrive earlier to get more time in each of the areas.
