Drums, Drums, Drums!!!

We took three little boys, three and under, to a place called the Rhythm Discovery Center in downtown Indy last Friday. My cousin Robin and her younger son Caleb joined us. He was the BIG KID. He was very impressed with this fact, and that was so cute. Terri was visiting her dad in the hospital, so Mom took Gibson, and I had LM.

This place is so cool! Seriously cool - tons of instruments the kids can actually play on, and then lots of exhibits we didn't really get to read because of the aforementioned boys. They had a blast! Here are some photos:

The first thing we came to was this gong drum.

This place was not quiet. And at first, Gibson wasn't so sure about the noise. But, he caught on pretty quickly. And, if I were to go again, I would take some inexpensive foam earplugs just to kill some of the sound.

See - Gibson got into it just fine, eventually.

Then, there was a drum set. They loved it!

And a little video!

It was great fun! The kids loved it! Then, on the way to the car, we encountered a family of clarinet players, performing on the street for tips:

Not your typical street musicians...

See you soon.

  1. The obvious musical talent in this family is nothing short of miraculous! I can only imagine the gifts they will pass on to the world as they improve with age.
