Our St Louis Vacation, part 2


Okay, so I'm rehashing the St Louis trip cause http://www.wearethatfamily.com/
is having a Sizzling Summer Celebration Giveaway.

If you ever get a chance to go to St Louis, go to the Magic House, Children's Museum. My kids (and the adults) had a great time exploring and playing with all of the interactive activities. I had always wanted to do the "static hair experiment ball thingy" - and here is a picture for your enjoyment. I was laughing hysterically the entire time - I could see myself in a mirror. Note: no moms were injured for this picture and if you try this yourself, it won't work with wet hair, right Paige?

We also went to the St Louis zoo during our visit. It is a clean, free zoo with lots of different animals. My husband especially liked the reptile house and all the creepy snakes. If you are there in October, they have a fabulous Boo at the Zoo with trick or treating, crafts, and characters to meet.

So, we didn't get to go on an extended 14 day vacation to a tropical location (or hunting location, if Jeff chooses), but we did have a wonderful weekend visiting my sister and brother-in-law in the city they call "The Gateway to the West".

St Louis is a place that my hubby and I have on our list of cities we want to visit! And I've always wanted to do that static ball thing... looks like I could get two dreams for the price of one!

St Louis is awesome! We went a couple of years ago and we loved it.

When I was a kid we were driving from Boise, ID to NC. We got SO lost in our hug motorhome in the middle of rush hour traffic. So that's my only memory of Saint Lew-ee!! Glad someone had a good time there - lol.
