St.Louis Science Center

What's for Dinner: Taco Plate

At the Sewing Machine: Wanting to play with my new ruffler

On the Scrapbook Table: Transferring completed pages into a new album

This past weekend we took an overnight road trip to St. Louis to use our passes before they expire at the end of this month. It really made an impression on the children when we went last February. It is a wonderful place, and almost everything is free! The most hysterical moment was watching Emelie, Teddy, and Caleb fly a Cessna simulator through the Gateway Arch. I won't be climbing in a plane with any of the anytime soon!








  1. Don't listen to my mom. I was an excellent pilot. I only hit three buildings and I never ran into the ground. However, I did try to do a barrel roll when I only was like a hundred feet in the air. But practice makes perfect!

  2. Ahhhh, spoken like an almost-thirteen-year-old pilot!

  3. that sounds like so much fun! Looks like a great adventure. How was the car ride?
