I just love this picture. Shucks... I'm such a lucky gal to have a guy who loves me ;)
Roller Slide: super fun, but a bit of a bumpy ride
sumo dude... you're NO match!
I think this was my favorite thing... a skate park without the wheels! ingenious... lol
Aren't they sooo cute!! I LOVE these guys! hmmm.. I can't remember who stuck their finger in the picture... Ben or Wendell... oh well I'll just have to yell at both! lol
I just love this pic! So... we can start and end with it *grin*
A bit late in the posting of this... but none the less enjoyable!
Right before we moved from MO Ben and I did something completely unheard of.
we went on a DATE!
Amber, Craig and Unc. Wendell came along too. The big outing was to go experience the city museum. This place is UNBELIEVABLE!
Some guy just put this place together with recycled things he found all over the city. Just think of a children's playland for grown ups.
you can see all of their pictures here, worth a peek
So here's the highlights:
We first went to Crown Candy.... this total hole in the wall (seriously in the middle of the projects, a little scary) but totally worth it! It has a 50's diner kinda flair. The food was amazing. On the Dahle's recommendation I got the BLT. This puppy had about 3 inches of crispified bacon deliciousness! sigh....
After some yummy ice cream treats we were off to the city museum. I don't even know where to start.
There was a great magician entertainer guy
4 story slides to zip down
wire tubes that you climb through that are like 100 ft in the air
a ball pit with kick ball size balls
jungle gym type mazes to climb through
an entire area that looks like underground caves (seriously you can get lost!)
a room of street skating half pipes and such (SO FUN)
sooo many artifacts from old buildings
and under-the-sea area with aquariums
vintage gaming stuff
an old vault and mirror room
and I'm sure I'm forgetting like half the stuff.
Anyone on their way to the midwest really has to go here. My only regret is that we didn't go till our last week in town. I would have loved to bring the kids back during the day.
