Over the River and Through the Woods!

… to grandmother’s house we go! Dallin and I decided to visit Grandma Hubbard who lives in Robinson, Illinois with Uncle Ernie and Aunt Sue for our spring break.

Day 1: We flew into St. Louis and got a rental car. This is a nice zippy little Nissan that has super great gas mileage!

We saw the Mississippi River even though I thought it was a lake! First we had to grab something to eat. There were only bars in St. Louis… at least that’s what it seemed like but we found a Thai Restaurant. Dallin got something called a Tofu Lard Khing (http://www.senthaibistro.com/) it was the funniest dinner platter I’ve ever seen! It was a vegetarian dish.

I sat next to a medical student and a McDonald’s manager on the plane they both referred us to the City Museum (http://www.citymuseum.org/home.asp) in downtown St. Louis. It is basically a grownup playground. Dallin and I couldn’t believe it! It was the coolest museum ever. It was basically made out of junk and trash. They had a 10 story slide and Dallin convinced me to hike up to the top of the 10 stories… by the time I got up there I was too tired to walk back down so I decided to go down the slide. It was so big… Dallin and I spent 3.5 hours and only got through half the museum. It was one that you would definitely get lost in.
