Zoo and Magic House

Last week Grant had a some sort of lab thing he had to be at in St. Louis. They were putting him up in a nice hotel the prior night, so the whole fam decided to tag along and make a little trip out of it.

The hotel was great, right downtown across from the ballpark and arch. It was nicer than we are used to, so that was a treat. We actually stayed alongside the visiting Milwaukee Brewers, which was kinda neat.

The next morning Grant had to work, so the boys and I hit up the zoo. (I really wanted to go to the outlet mall instead, but Grant told me I would be a bad mom if I took the boys shopping instead of to the zoo. Argh. When he puts it like that, I had no choice but to give in.) The zoo was great though. Although, Jagger will tell you that the highlight was when we stopped for ice cream. Hmm, we could have had ice cream at the mall, ya know, where it's air conditioned and there are bargains to be had. But anyway. I was a trooper.

After lunch, we picked up Grant and headed to the Magic House, a children's museum. It was a very cool place. The boys had such a great time there we will have to go back another time this summer, to catch all the stuff we missed.

  1. I know it was a "magic house" but the picture of Cash with the mirror (?) confuses me greatly. He looks like he has a tiny little head. Maybe that's the idea...


I love hearing from you! Thanks!
