City Museum, St. Louis

It's nine hours from our house to St. Louis.  We know it well.

The kids don't ask us to stop, because they are highly motivated
to get to the first destination on our two day journey.

They were more than willing to get up before dawn

so we could get to City Museum before dark.

The only word I can think of to describe it is ridiculous.

Every time I turn around I just laugh and say, "How in the world?"

Not the kids.  They are way too busy playing and exploring.

This is no McDonald's ball pit.

It's a sculpture garden.

Or something like that.

If you're anywhere at all near St. Louis, and have a kid...or a camera...you must go.  GO!

What a fun place! I loved seeing you in the mirror most of all : ) You made my day!

I love that place! Speaking from experience, you don't even need a kid to have fun. I went with the other college RA's back in the day.
