Our Visit To Notre Dame – Kid Friendly Things To Do .com

The zoo that we like in Indiana is very close to the Notre Dame campus. This was the third time we’ve gone to the zoo, with me saying – next time, I’m definitely driving into Notre Dame to get some pictures! Third times a charm, right?! I finally managed to squeeze in a short visit, and snapped some fun pictures of the beautiful campus buildings! Here are some of them!:

  • Notre Dame Campus! Beautiful pictures!
  • The guy at check in, said the gold dome building was about 1&1/2 blocks away from the parking lot! I think it’s a little bit longer than that! Thank goodness for benches along the way – those saved me! Ella – not pictured above, who walked just fine at the zoo, suddenly couldn’t go any further! So much drama. I told her to rest on each bench, and walk when she could. Oy!
  • The paths are beautiful. They are lined with trees, flower gardens, statues, and benches
  • People were doing various activities, performing, interviewing, lounging on blankets, taking tours, etc.. I loved the atmosphere
  • Notre Dame Campus! Beautiful pictures!
  • Before we arrived at our destination – the golden dome, I found this beauty! I have a thing for steeples, and this one is absolutely gorgeous!
  • Notre Dame Campus! Beautiful pictures!
  • Everything is so Gothic in style – one of my favorite forms of architecture

  • Ta Da! The golden dome! The kids look like ants on the steps!

  • I’m not sure who the statue is of at the top? Jesus? An angel? A saint?
  • You just can’t help but appreciate this gorgeous building! The lanterns in front are even ornate!
  • Notre Dame Campus! Beautiful pictures!
  • That’s Ella in the left corner! This is not the gold dome building, and I am pushing my limitations with my “super fun” history facts! We were looking at the symbols carved into the building, and guessing at what they stood for. I thought it was fun, my other 3 kids enjoyed seeing what we could find, but not Ella Bella!
  • Notre Dame Campus! Beautiful pictures!
  • This is cool – A miniature statue of Joan of Arc! The other side of the door had an angel – I couldn’t make out his name?
  • Another history lesson?! Yep!

  • Heading back – we found Jesus! and some guy being interviewed – Guessing a sports guy?! My husband would have known exactly who he was. I have no idea.
  • Then…my phone died! That stinks for Ella, because now I have to go back, and get pictures of the cool dragon carvings on another building!
