Jingle Rails

Tuesday, December 27, 2011 - 
Day 17: Western Cold Front found us at the Eiteljorg Museum. Out of all the museums in Indy, hubs and I had never been to the Eiteljorg. I have no idea why. With the exhibit 'Jingle Rails', I decided we needed to make it happen.

The main reason we went was for Jingle Rails, an exhibit full of model trains and models of locations in the Indianapolis area and in the Western part of the country. These exhibits were great - I was so impressed with what was built out of stones, sticks and other natural products. Take a look:

And of course, being an American Indian and Western Art museum, there were a lot of great exhibits about the Native Americans. We even got to built our own tee-pees.

It was a great day ending with a great night at the JW Marriott. We dined at their restaurant, High Velocity, with burgers and fries before relaxing without any plans. It was really great to not have plans and relax with the beautiful skyline behind us.

Perfect for preparing for day 18: Lazy brunch morning. We dined at Granite City to give it a go - caramel rolls and build your own benedict. We had a busy afternoon, so starting our Sunday with lazy was definitely the way to go.

Day 19: Who was an evening of How the Grinch Stole Christmas, though we ended up not even watching the movie. Prepping for the holiday weekend, we knew it was going to be a busy week so we had to get a move on with laundry and packing! Stay tuned for the rest of the advent recap (and of course, holiday photos!) this week.
