Meet me in St. Louie

Warning, Warning... Lots of pictures!!!
Last weekend we took a much needed family get away. We loaded up the kids Friday night and were off. The kids were upset with us that we didn't get to a hotel earlier so that they could swim. They got over it the next morning when we took them here. (Click here to learn more about this place.)

All I could say while we were there was wow!!! The kids kept saying, "Thank you guys so much this is awesome!!!" Then they would say, "I would even pay $200 to come here again". So let me bore you with some pictures of our amazing day.

Here are Emmitt and Constance ready to start the day.



This is an airplane that is about seven stories in the air that the kids can climb up to. I will show better pictures later.


The first thing we did when we got in was go to the aquarium. It was great, there were many tanks that you could put your hands in and touch the fish. This picture is of Emmitt being attacked by the "Dr. Fish". When you put your hand in they attack it and eat all the dead skin. It feels like little suction cups all over your hands.




Next on the agenda was a zip down the 7 story slide. The only problem was walking up to the top of the seven story slide. But what a ride it was.



After our stomachs got back to normal after that slide we went outside to enjoy the beautiful 75 degrees. This is a picture of some of the crazy jungle gym stuff.



This shows kids climbing from the Air plane to another part of the the jungle gym.


Here are Emmitt Constance and Jason climbing in the "tube" from the plane. NO I didn't get up there!!!!!!





Another picture from a different angle.


What I liked most about the museum is all the random pieces of architecture.



Ahh what a great day!!!
