A Visit to @ConnerPrairie

Wednesday I took some time to head up to Indianapolis to visit with my friends CM and EM!  They drove all the way down from South Bend so we could link up; I hadn't seen them since 2008.  So, since it was time for a special reunion, EM had the idea to check out Conner Prairie!

Conner Prairie is an interactive history park, kind of like Colonial Williamsburg for Hoosiers.  It seems most kids in Indiana get to visit the park during elementary school, but I never got to go since we moved here when I was in 5th grade.  EM wanted to check out their Randall steers, so we decided to meet up there.

I had so much fun!  The weather was chilly/drizzly, but since there were so few people, it really felt like a private tour.  (By the way, they gave me a great military discount, so THANK YOU Conner Prairie!)

We got to pet some ducks, goats, sheep, and cows...  I think I enjoyed the animals the best, and EM definitely did too!  I even got to check another thing off my 'Before I'm 30' list by milking a cow!  We had hot apple cider (perfect on a cool day) and really enjoyed the visit.  You're never too old for this kind of stuff.

We ate dinner at Brugge, a favorite gastropub of EM/CM, and it was AWESOME.  Their frites are amazing.  I had steak frites, with a crepe dessert...  delish.  I tasted EM's beer, which was so good I could drink it by the pint: the Tripel de Ripple!

I couldn't think of a better way to spend a day in the Hoosier Heartland.
