quick vacation

A couple of weeks ago we loaded up along with my sister and her kids, my other sister & my mom, and headed to St Louis, MO.  We headed out of town around 5 am and by 10:30 am we were walking into the City Museum!

If you are near the St Louis area you should definitely check this place out, the kids had a blast!  We could have spent hours in there!  My only recommendation, wear knee pads! lol  No, I'd say at least wear jeans and tennis shoes.  I wore shorts and flip flops, big mistake!  Along with the museum there is an aquarium.... it wasn't quite what we were expecting but it was still fun none the less.

it's a good way to wear people out! :-)

After the museum we headed to the Gateway Arch, it was nice to see the arch but really exciting seeing all of the flooding down there!

we finished our night off with a dip in the pool, then woke up early the next day and headed to the zoo!  We had a great day for the zoo, 82 was the high, we had an occasional breeze.... only problem was the zoo was packed!  Apparently Kevin James was there and they were having the premiere of Zookeeper!  Unfortunately we didn't get to see Kevin James, but we saw lots of fun animals and had a great time!

Hope you enjoyed the million pictures!  We had a blast and will definitely go back again, there is so much to do in St Louis that we didn't even have a chance to see it all!
