What fun we had yesterday at The Eitelljorg Museum in Indianapolis. It is home to the holiday exhibit for Jingle Rails.
"The railroad changed the face of the West forever and Jingle Rails brings that story to life. The exhibit is a series of trestles, bridges, tunnels and trains that wind through detailed replicas of both the city of Indianapolis and Western landmarks. Eight trains wind through the elaborate landscape, including lighted passenger trains, trains with vintage posters and advertisements on their sides and freight trains."
Ron and Ainsley, Lindsey and Daniel had a grand time. Well, so did I...The exhibit is made entirely of natural woods except, of course, for the rails and trains. There was the Grand Canyon, Yellowstone, Yosemite, Mt. Rushmore, and Aspen ski resort. There was even the cliff dwellings at Mesa Verde. And who could leave out the city of Indianapolis and the State Fair Grounds. All in all it was quite an experience.
After lunch at Sanatorini's, a Greek restaurant in Indianapolis, we bid the kids and grandkids adieu and returned home last evening. It was, indeed a wonderful holiday experience.
Thanks be to God!!
