St Louis

On Mother's Day we left for St Louis to take the kids on a little "long" weekend away.  The hotel had a pool which the kids loved!  We went to this Incredible Pizza place which had mini bowling lanes for kids.  So we spent some time teaching the kids to bowl.  It was a lot of fun.

 Monday, we went to the St Louis Zoo.  We spent 6 hours there and still didn't see it all.  It was a wonderful zoo and the kids had a blast.  I still can't believe how well they ride in a car and amazed that they can "hang" with us for so long without many melt downs.  This is a picture of petting the sting rays and sharks.  Brody wanted nothing to do with this...

 Thought this was a cool sea otters!
 Fun kiddie playground.

 Train ride while it rained...
 I think Brody is thinking "hey, this guy kind of looks like me"...
 Brody's favorite part was the reptile house...he loved the snakes...such a boy.  Reece's favorite part (she told me) was riding the carosel...she's such a girl!
 They had so much fun!!  We went to St Louis City Museum on Tuesday but my camera was dead after taking so many pictures at the zoo.  I highly recommend it.  It's a fun place.  Lots of climbing - like a huge indoor McDonalds playland.  We even went down a 10 story slide!!
