Carpe diem! A Day at The City Museum

  • Font size:LargerSmaller

With not a clue in our minds as to what we were getting ourselves into, the 13 munchkins hopped into the vans one by one to set sail for the City Museum in Saint Louis, Missouri.

If you have never been to the "museum," and you have children under the age of 13, you are truly missing out. Many of us agreed this place should have been called a playground, or maybe a fun center. It was less a museum, and more a jungle gym of tunnels, ladders, slides, and rides!

                                      

As we arrived and parked our matsiko-mobiles on the side of the road, we were kindly greeted on the sidewalk by a young employee who then lead us into our performance area, where the crazy concoctions and architecture would take our breath away.

It was hard to hold back climbing over and under everything in sight, but the kids knew as soon as work was done, play would begin. So they rushed into their costumes, and as they were changing their shoes, a problem arose.... Somebody forgot theirs!

One pair of flip flops, and 12 pairs of shoes?! No way! Our solution... Everyone goes barefoot! Good thing these kids know how to go with the flow.

                                      

And the show began! A half hour of pure magic as usual, then it was time for the real fun to begin. After they were back in their street clothes, it was time for rooftop activities.

From the two giant slides, to the giant ferris wheel located on the edge of the roof, it was impossible to choose what to do first!

Chaos erupted. Matsiko kids EVERYWHERE.

There was julio and sofia inside the school bus that was cleverly placed hanging halfway off of the corner of the building, and luciana too scared to actually slide down the slide once she got to the top... and of course jessica, sarah and ezekiel on the giant ferris wheel. The next two hours were spent taking turns exploring every nook and cranny of the place.

                                     

There was a sadness in the air when we had to leave as we all wondered why saint louis isnt more popular. From the zoo, to the museum, to the cardinals baseball game, it seemed there wasnt anything this city didnt have to offer!

DON'T FORGET!
