We received a wonderful gift from my Dad last Christmas - a one-night stay at the Crown Plaza in Indianapolis with tickets to the Indianapolis Zoo and Children's Museum. It was a great gift, because the three of us got away together (something we rarely do these days). The hotel has an actual train (on the tracks) with rooms to stay in and each one is decorated beautifully.
This year, we stayed in the Charlie Chaplin room, which was better than the PT Barnum room we had last year - too many clowns!
Whenever we would head to the room, Ella would say, "Who's that dude again?" It's funny how we take for granted our knowledge and experiences. I was thinking, "Charlie Chaplin wasn't a 'dude' - he was an icon!". But, we filled her in nonetheless.
The train car was gorgeous! All black and white with red accents. This sillouette was the first thing we saw as we entered the room.
I love polka dots!
By the end of our stay, Ella almost had her impression down (without ever actually seeing Charlie in motion).
I love this picture....
The train is actually in an area with skylights, so it actually feels like you'll be stepping off at the next station.
What a treat! Thanks Dad!
