St. Louis trip.

This week we got to take a quick trip to St. Louis. Massimo had to go there for work, so we joined him. We stayed near the Galleria area which was really nice. It was close to all the St. Louis stuff, but in a fancier area. The hotel had a pool and hot tub which we used every day. The first day we went to the Magic House. It is a 3 story house that is a Children Musuem. We spent the morning doing things like water table, sand box play, the Curious George and Magic rooms. After lunch we did the static generator, the 3 story Bean Stalk that they climb up, the musical chairs bench, construction center where they wear hard hats and play with construction things. There is even a level with a town that has library, grocery store, ice cream vendor, fishing, house, pizzaeria all of that WHEW! www.magichouse.org

The next day we went to the City Museum. Massimo had to work at night, so during the day he went to the Museum with us. It is amazing. There is a whole section that is tree fort/maze, where you climb through tunnels, over bridges and all over. Here is Dominic climbing through a hollowed out tree that stretched across the room. Other big hits were a mini train that drove around inside with a little person as the conductor. Toddler town with a ball pit, a skate park with rope swings and such, and a 3 story slide. http://www.citymuseum.org
