Day 3: Botanical Gardens

I have quite a bit still to post about from our wonderful trip to St. Louis with the suprise ending trip to the hospital. And, I can't believe it, but after 2 days back at home... Alexandra woke up sick in the middle of the night! So, I guess we'll wait a little longer to get "back to normal."

So, this is a continuation of Day 3. We spent the morning at The Science Center and headed about a mile down the road to the Missouri Botanical Gardens in the late afternoon. We spent our time in the kid's play area where there are lots of things to climb on and then went to the Rainforest area. We didn't have much time left, so we just walked around looking at the beautiful flowers and sculptures. They also have the largest Japanese gardens in the US and I really wanted to see that, but we just didn't have time.

What a great museum! Is this the one where you thought you had pulled a muscle?
I love all the sculptures! Like you, I think the lion is the coolest. Although I love the photo with Alexandra sitting on the flower.
It looks like a great trip so far!
