Trip to the Eiteljorg

Back in the day when Steve and I were first married, we took a trip to the Eiteljorg for a masters class that he was taking. I remember it being interesting...but not really a place I'd take small kiddos. Basically, it is a museum of Native American art and culture.

But recently I'd seen some of my friends posting about taking their kiddos and Steve recently had a meeting there that was in the "family area" (a place we hadn't previously checked out), so when we heard that they were having "Kaya day" we had to go check it out. (Kaya is, from what I have learned since having a little girl, an "American Girl"...specifically a Native American, American Girl). So they had Kaya themed activities for little kids and a chance to win a Kaya doll (that's what really drew me...alas, we did not win...I'll just have to save my pennies to get this $100.00 doll one day for my daughter, since I doubt I'll be able to get her anything else that bears her name (I doubt I'll be able to buy her a "Kaia" keychain for example).

So we went..both kids got in free and since Steve worked at IUPUI he got in free, and I found a coupon that got me in for $6..and we got free parking, so I'd say it was worth the trip :). The family area was cute...I was under the impression that it was a little bigger than it actually was, so it didn't take us too long to get through it all, but I got some cute pictures of the kids nonetheless, and Brett had a great time!
