Today we decided to have fun so started with the famous ARCH which we still hadn’t visited.
To ride to the top is a tram consisting of enclosed capsules , nothing like the London Eye,
Tal decided it was a rocket.
On the top Tal showed off by using his sticks
Here are the views either side.
As you can see it is very flat you can see across the State.
Next was the downtown City Museum… this is nothing like your idea of a museum.
Shells of aeroplanes , buses , fire-engines are connected by metal tubes and walkways.
Adults try to keep up with their youngsters.Veterans wearing gloves, kneepads and carrying torches,Inside the building is a maze of tunnels.One slide goes three stories from the roof to the ground.
Inside Gethin was raring to go.
But Tal was tired after an early start and needed a nap,We began to think it would be too much for him.After he re-charged his batteries we found a new very confident Tal.
We were amazed to see Tal start climbing, poor Jon felt obliged to follow.
There are several photos as we were so impressed, he has always been such a cautious child.
This is definitely NOT a soft play are and the kids love it.Tal was infected with the sense of adventure.He decided to go along a tunnel at ceiling height.
He then had to come down a snake slide.
There was then a train driven by a midget ( is this PC ?) which was surreal designed by someone on magic mushrooms …Tal and Gethin loved it,but it will give me nightmares!
The adults had a go climbing outside and came back cooked.
In many places everyone had to crawl Tal was so much faster than everyone he thought it was great.Jon had trouble keeping up and was exhausted.
Gethin found his way into the fire engine.
The whole place is bizarre, unique, crazy and exhausting.It was an amazing experience and another impressive surprise that St Louis has to offer.
Early night tonight as there is an early Physio and the post op assessment by Dr Park himself tomorrow afternoon.
