Play and Pie in Terre Haute

Originally planning to explore the Children’s Museum in Indianapolis, due to “no room at any of the inns,” we drove on to Terre Haute where we discovered they had a Children’s Museum of their own.  Yes!

After 2+ hours, we had to convince the kiddos it was time to eat (at Grand Traverse Pie Company) and make our way home to Illinois.
