Our Wonderfull Road Trip to MO Day Six

Day 6: Wednesday March 19,2009

If you would like to read from day one please scroll down and read up.

We woke up this morning and had breakfast at the hotel then walked over a bit to check out Union Station.

It was early and everything inside was still closed. We made a smashed penny and then walked back to our hotel to check out.
We headed back to the arch

for our ride to the top

and spent some time looking out. Silas loved to look out. I know these people are not really us but remember the camera had died at this point and so I just googled images.

After we rode back down I stopped off at the gift shop one more time to buy a book I had seen the day before.
A couple of people had told us we must visit the City Museum before we left town so we headed over to spend about an hour before we headed to Meramac Caverns.

It looked pretty fun from the outside so we paid up the parking meter for two hours and headed inside. It seemed pretty pricey to get in but we went anyway and then had a bathroom break before we went all the way in. Once we went inside we realized this was an all day kind of a place. It was a huge old building downtown that was basically a giant playground. I kept thinking "Museum?" There was a section that was museum like but I never saw it. This place was big. Tiny crawl spaces,steep slides,snack bars,circus performances,arts and crafts,aquarium...I didn't even get to see all of it but this was a fun place!
The girls spent a lot of time in the aquarium. Where we got to pet stingrays, turtles, sharks, and doctor fish. Doctor fish are small like little goldfish and they swim really fast, I was wondering how in the world we were going to be able to pet them the a little girl told us to just stick our hands in. When you did this they came up and starting sucking on your fingers. What they are doing was eating away our dead skin. Kind of gross but it tickled. We hated to leave this place but even the girls were begging us to go. Sad. This is definitely going on our 'places we must go back to again' list.

We drove on to ------ and drove around ----State Park(I've waited so long to write this post I've forgotten the name of the town and park...) for awhile but it was too cold to play much. We ate at Steak and Shake. Then we found a hotel. Shiloh took the girls swimming while Silas and I showered and got ready for bed. We all got to bed a little late but packed up everything so it would be ready to go early in the morning.
