Two Pictures

Two pictures that need very little explaination.
The first: Eating corn on the cob for the first time.

The second: Just coloring.

Conner Prairie

Bryan's parents were here for a visit over Labor Day weekend and we took that opportunity to go to Conner Prairie. Conner Prairie is a couple hundred acres in the busy Fishers area that has been turned into a few different authentic villages between 1819-1889. The employees dress in costume and demonstrate how things were done or made during that specific time period.
Obviously the history and intended educational value of the place was lost on Lilly. All she really wanted to do was see the cow. A real live cow. I walked her over and pointed at the cow. She gasped, mouth hanging open, for a few seconds. Then she smiled and said, "moooooooooo". After that we took in the rest of the place, but she continued to request the cow. "Cawow" she would ask.
You can't see the cow in this picture, but I swear she is there. Lilly stood at the fence for a long time just watching her.

Another high point of Conner Prairie was the small historically accurate hut in the Indian Village. As you can see the typical Delaware Indian built his home out of re bar and bamboo mats with bright green synthetic binding. But, it was tiny little place and Lilly loved it. As you can see she insisted that her Daddy Guy hang out in there too.
On our way out we stopped in the play room for a spot of tea. Lilly can't resist the urge to serve tea and Bryan's dad was content to sit in the little chair and join her. Mostly I think he was just happy that she didn't insist on him wearing one of the costumes in the background. Although, the purple dress was quite striking.
After Conner Prairie we hit downtown Carmel and rested at Muldoon's before dinner. Most of us just wanted to sit for a minute and have a cold drink, but Lilly took 'rest time' to a whole other level.

The Dentist

I took Lilly to the dentist for the first time this week. She hated it. Here is the proof.

The initial exam and cleaning, this was the part she hated the most. I only wish my dental hygienist worked this fast. She was done with the whole thing, counting, exam, cleaning and polishing, in less than three minutes.
This is Lilly's new dentist doing his exam. Dr. Dean came highly recommended by my best friend...he is Courtney's dad and Aiden's granddad. Notice the only person NOT smiling in the 'after' picture is the patient.
