We woke up to a very rainy day on day 2 in St Louis but that didn’t stop us from a very wet run through part of the park. We were soaked by the end but also laughing a ton. After drying off we headed out to our first museum, the St Louis Science Center. We posed with the dinosaur and Leighton solved a life size disc puzzle. We headed out on the bridge that connects the Science Center with Forrest Park and checked out the traffic below as well. Across the bridge we found the reason that the Science Center was on our “must-see” list. Both the Gemini and Mercury space crafts were manufactured in St Louis and the Science Center had two on display. Leighton was super pumped to see them and explore the whole space area. We also found a section on video games and he played Pac Man which was fun and then explored the farm area outside as well. After lunch we headed over to the City Museum and literally spent the next 5 hours climbing through various tunnels and caves and holes and who knows what else all over that museum. It is an old warehouse that has been transformed and to say it is ecclectic would be an understatement. There was a 10 story slide we went down and various other slides. There were things outside and inside and we had a blast. It was super hot and muggy but we climbed and explored away anyway. It was all Clint and I could do to keep up with Leighton but we had nearly as much fun as he did. There is really no words that do it justice, but if you are ever in St Louis one should check it out. Be prepared to walk away with a few bruises and to spend more time on your belly than standing up and to laugh like crazy all the way through it. When we were sufficiently done climbing and sliding around we headed back to our Airbnb for homemade tacos and settled in to watch the girls meet from the little living room and then called it a day.
