Summer Sunday (Part 2) - St. Louis Zoo


I am back this week sharing about another fun activity my family has enjoyed this summer. 

I am really trying to relax and refresh during the time I have left. Students start back to school exactly one month from today. Eeeek! Where have the last 6 weeks gone?!?

On our recent trip to St. Louis, my son wanted to stop by the zoo. What a great request. This place has free admission. We had a ton of fun as a family and enjoyed seeing lots of animals. This is a great place to visit and it fits nicely in the budget too. 

Check out the photo tour of some of our highlights. Enjoy!











So how is your summer vacation going? Comment below. I'd love to hear from you!

Summer Sunday - City Museum - St. Louis

So I've decided that over the next several Sundays to share what my summer fun has been about. I'm a super planner (and believe me- that is still happening). However, I have slowly realized that I don't take the time necessary to really relax. I'm trying to focus on that the last half of my summer. So, I bring to you the first edition of Summer Sunday!



My family and I went on a little two day trip to St. Louis. So much to do in that city! I was completely in awe of the City Museum. What an awesome and unique place. This is definitely on our list of "must do this again" adventures. The architecture of this place is amazing. It is housed in an old shoe factory building and designed out of recycled and reclaimed objects. We could only visit for one day and there was no way to see it all, so we just let the kids guide us. Pretty amazing! Below is a photo tour of the highlights of our day. 



Pencils - of course I had to take this picture.

Fossil and specimen displays.

If this isn't a place you have visited yet, definitely add it to your list if you ever visit St. Louis. If you'd like to find out more, just visit http://www.citymuseum.org.


**Disclaimer - I am writing this review out of my own amazement of this museum. I'm not receiving any kind of retribution for promoting the City Museum.
