Nick was to preach at St. Louis church on the 12th so we decided to make a long weekend getaway. We sure did enjoy our time away. Lots of things to do in St. Louis so we stayed busy.
One day we went to the City Museum. We are SOOOO glad we left an entire day for this event. There is so much to see and so much to do. My boys were a bit skeptical by the name and even the outside of the building looks run down and awful. But when we got to the front entrance of the place my boys eyes lite up and they were so excited. So much climbing around and sliding down, and getting lost:).
Even Ellie did this stuff. She was more brave than I was. Yes, I did crawl through all that stuff but ONLY once! The boys all did it several times.
Nick, Elijah and Caden going through the tallest wire tunnel.
Did I mention lots of slides?? This was one of the many. A note to self and anyone wanting to go here....wear gym short material. These slides and jean material do NOT mix.
The next day was packed full. We went to the Gateway Arch.
Inside the Arch!!
|We then went to the Anheuser-Busch Brewery for a "free" tour. It wasn't anything to spectacular, but you do get a "free" beer taste at the end:) Kids get a "free" soda.|
Besides the arch and the brewery we also went to the FREE St. Louis zoo!! Sure had fun here. Kids enjoyed the animals and got a good amount of walking in:). (ok, so kids didn't like all the walking, but still they enjoyed the zoo).
It had a small petting zoo for goats only. Ellie was terrified of them.
...................stay tuned for what we arrived home to.......
