Road Trip

We got to travel to St. Louis for Labor Day weekend, to visit my sister-in-law.  We had a great time!  We visited Grant's Farm, where you can see the Budweiser Clydesdale horses, and many other animals, too.

Here Lydia stands in front of a baby Clydesdale horse that is less than a week old!

We went to the City Museum the next day.  It is overwhelming!  There are so many places to climb and explore.  The kids had a blast, and so did I.

Of course these two had to have a picture in front of the big chicken!

There were mosaics throughout the museum, mostly on the floors.  I snapped a picture of this one on the way out.  It wasn't my favorite or anything; I just forgot to photgraph any others!  There was a really cool Medusa head on the floor at the entrance to the bathrooms, but instead of snakes for hair, she had fish.

These pictures really don't clearly display the craziness and unique aspect of the museum, so here's a couple of images I found online:

Yes, I climbed up into the airplane.  The building is a ten-story building, so you have some idea of scale.

Inside the caves area.  The kids liked crawling through the teeth.

The City Museum was great for older kids.  Even Elijah wasn't too cool to try it out, probably because teens and adults were as likely as the little kids to climb around anywhere they would fit.
