The Chocolate Slide

“Life is short, eat dessert first.”


Not only are these wise words true at the dinner table, also be sure to follow this advice the next time you go to The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis. From Feb. 4until April 23, the atrium at The Children’s Museum is transformed into a Willy Wonka inspired chocolate wonderland, including a 47 foot “chocolate river” slide.

My four-year-old daughter (The Blonde Bomber) and I visited The Children’s Museum this week, and decided to make the slide the first stop of our adventure.

Ready for takeoff!

After our successful trips (we went down the slide several times), Blonde Bomber posed for her picture in the Chocolate Photo booth.

She’s obviously having a terrible time at the museum.

After our repeated adventures down the slide, we made our way to the Chocolate Cafe. The Chocolate Cafe is a great place to derail whatever is left of your New Year’s Resolutions.

So many delicious chocolate choices.

There were so many wonderful sounding chocolate dessert choices, how would Blonde Bomber ever decide which one to get?

In true Blonde Bomber fashion, she chose a lollipop. A completely non-chocolate treat.

Other than not ordering chocolate at the chocolate cafe, our day was a total success.

The chocolate slide at the Children’s Museum is a great addition for those of you already missing the Yule Slide from Christmas. It’s also a great way to get your kids to leave the museum when you are ready to go. A bribe with a treat from the Chocolate Cafe doesn’t hurt either.

See you at the Museum.
