Day 121 - July 31st

Another full day in St. Louis - I am loving family vacations! This is what I've always dreamed of. Mom, Dad, and kid in the car checking out new things to all and having a great time together, taking pictures for the scrapbook (and for Facebook) and getting on each other's nerves when we're tired.

We spent several hours, more like 5 hours at The Magic House. It's a hand's on kid's museum. That was the coolest thing I've ever seen. At first I thought we were in for trouble, I thought it was too young for Ginger. But as we got deeper into the museum the cooler it got. We heard several times from Ginger, "This is the best day of my life!" Ginger had the greatest time. Our feet felt as if there were knives going in them, our legs were throbbing, and we were starving. But Ginger was no where near stopping. Every exhibit was her favorite.

They had an awesome construction room showing how houses and buildings were designed and made. They had a mystery floor where the kids had to use clues to figure out the mysteries. She had to go through a secret passageway through the fireplace and hold up clues in a mirror to read secret messages.

Then there was the town that kids ran. It was like a huge town. They had a library, grocery store, car shop, pizza shop, bank, post office, TV station, electric company, and so many others that I can't remember right off hand. It was just plain ol' cool. I had a great time...I mean, Ginger had a great time!


  1. If I remember from my own childhood, is it the place that has the twisty slide from the top floor down to the bottom?

  2. I think that's what you're talking about...maybe. It has a beanstalk the kids can climb up to the clouds (the third florr) and then climb back down. Does that sound familiar?
