Life in plastic, it's fantastic!

We loaded our brood in the car and drove East yesterday to meet up with Paula and her lovely brood in Indianapolis for a day full of Barbie fun at the Indianapolis Children's Museum. Yes, I know there are other exhibits there but we spent pretty much 90% of our time in the Barbie area... are you surprised?

Paula and I were immediately drawn to this wall of inspiration. Cool, eh?

Modeling... (that's Jennifer and her son Wyatt in the back taking pictures of supermodels Amelia and Sydney!)

Being paparazzi...

Draping... (a la Project Runway)

Hmmm.. that's not half bad, eh?

Posing...

Running... (This was our view most of the day since Sydney and Amelia became BFFs instantly. After all, they are both "five and a half," as they would have you know.)

Ridin'...

And crusin'... (possibly one of my fave pictures EVER! Check out how comfortable Wyatt is with "the girls", haha)

It was a BLAST and Sydney's already asking when she can go see her BFF again. :)

  7. Hi all! Thanks so much for the comments. Yes, this was such a great outing.
    Kathleen, yes that was an early prototype for the Isabel dress. I ended up changing the straps so that they would tie at the shoulder instead of by using metal clips. (just less hardware to buy) ;)

  13. "I gotta go" my words to my hubby after seeing your Barbie pics! I love the Indy Children's museum AND a Barbie exhibit is a definite must see - I LOVE all your stuff! I didn't think I would be "making" vaca plans after reading your blog - usually I'm inspired to "make" something with fabric! ~ Thanks the exhibit was awesome, my girls and I spent over 3 hours in it!
