Cars and Art

Tuesday of the Family Reunion was for Indianapolis field trips.  One of my nephews couldn't decide between the Indy Speedway and the Art Museum, so John and I figured we could take him to both.  We went to the Speedway in the morning with the big group.  There were 24 of us, so we got a whole tour bus to ourselves. 

John and I had been there before, but this time we did the big tour, which meant we got to get out on the track, and actually go into some of the buildings.  It was much cooler.

After the tour, everyone else spent some time at the museum, but we split off for a quick lunch and then headed to the Indianapolis Museum of Art.

First, we wandered around the Hundred Acre Park, because I wanted to see the Funky Bones.  

jumping off the ribs!  

On the way back, we saw all these signs, which I thought were pretty cool.  First, I wanted to stand by the human sign.  I'm apparently also "natural" and a "thing."  So many signs!

Then John made me stand by the pretty sign.  I didn't feel particularly pretty on such a hot day, but I'll take the compliment!

Anyway, it was a fun day.  If you're ever in Indy, I'd recommend you check out both the speedway and the art museum!

  1. Sound like a super fun day. Hope you have a great week.

  2. I've been to Indy before, but I've never taken the time to appropriately explore. It looks like you guys had a great time! Love that first photo with the sun effects!


  3. aw, John's so sweet :) I would have wanted to stand by the LEAF LEAF LEAF sign. Also, I thought the sign behind you for a moment read "a community of orgasms" and I thought, gee, that's quite inappropriate.

  4. Indy-too cool. I want to visit there.

  5. Oh my gosh, that art museum looks SO cool - right up my alley!! John is too sweet - you are pretty!! :)
