Mattyana Jones and the Night at the Museum

Indian Jones (Scott Croft of Rantoul) tells young Indiana Jones (Matthew Brauer, aka Mattyana of Urbana) some of the adventures that lay in store for him and he toured the Chanute Air Museum, which hosted it's Night at the Museum Saturday. Children were given a list of things to do and places to see in the museum...

Matty also ended up winning the grand prize of the evening! A dvd of the Ben Stiller movie "Night at the Museum" the book the movie was based on along with an assortment of movie candy. He was pretty excited!!

Meet Mattyana

A few weeks before the new Indy movie came out Matty started playing Indiana Jones, I started calling him Mattyana.....he didn't like it.....until he thought it up himself!! so this is his official Mattyana garb. He wouldn't trade his rope whip in for a more realistic version. He taped up the end of his rope whip with electrical tape!! he's been wanting his picture taken for a LONG time to put in his journal......"The adventures of Mattyana Jones" look for it at a book store near you!!!
