UP IN A BALLOON!


Sammy and I went to Conner Prairie http://connerprairie.org/ this past Saturday. It was loads of fun...a little warm but fun. 

We took a ride on the Helium Balloon. We met Maria who was the balloon pilot who took us up 300 ft i. The only other one like this is in California!
You can see the outdoor theater where they have open air concerts throughout the summer and you can take a picnic...too fun!\
We met Mike the the Lenape Indian and we both had goes throwing the tomahawk at the target. ...I hit it twice...!!! 
Then we met Alexander the trapper who told us where the term "Buck" (as in $) came from....A buck's skin was worth a dollar back then....and that's where the expression..."Got  a Buck?" came from! 

We walked towards Prairie town (outdoor pioneer village) and met  Elizabeth, originally from Leeds, England in the loom house.
Popped over to see "Jo" at the Connor House (first brick house in the county!) 
We petted some cuuuuute baby animals in the barn.
and finally  we headed back to the car. This was a great place to take a young special guy like our Sammy. Everyone was so sweet to him!
Here is the link to Conner Prairie outdoor Pioneer Museum if you are ever in Fishers, Indiana it is a MUST SEE!
