We packed up the van with clothes, swim gear and snacks and headed out for the five hour drive (with stopping for lunch) to St. Louis. We've been there twice before, in 1997 and again in 2008...it's amazing that all three times we have found new things to do and there's still more that we haven't gotten to yet!
We lucked out and missed all the rain back home while we enjoyed the warm and sunny weather in St. Louis! We visited the St. Louis Zoo, The Magic House (children's museum), two malls, a movie theatre (Journey 2 the Mysterious Island), Hammer's (pizza/arcade), Mini golf, lots of fun restaurants, the hotel volleyball court and the great hotel pool MANY times! For souveniers Lexy chose a Build a Bear panda (Oreo) at the zoo and Brooke choose a couple of new outfits at the mall.
