July 23 continued

Here are a few more pictures from our trip to City Museum:

 

Cogs and Marbles

Butterfly Floor

Sea Lion Floor

Circus Style Dog Show

Every good museum has an alien in a truck  box casket, right?

The man and his Gargoyle

I fell in love with this door – the white decorations are mother of pearl.

On the way to dinner we discovered the remaining stricter for National Memorial Family Church of God In Christ http://preservationresearch.com/2004/09/national-memorial-cogic/ which was destroyed by fire that was started by lightning. 

Dinner was at Fitz’s Root Beer http://www.fitzsrootbeer.com/menu.html  which is located next to a new statue dedicated to St. Louis’s Chuck Berry http://www.stltoday.com/news/local/metro/article_7ef38574-7fe7-5ee3-8bc3-97d5cb09404f.html that was to be dedicated July 29. 

After dinner we headed back to City Museum for Roof Top fun.  Another huge slide for Logan, Cookie and I had a ride on the Roof Top Ferris Wheel.  I thought it would be fun to take pictures from the top of Ferris Wheel – I was too scared to move.  I came to the conclusion that it’s been too many years between Ferris Wheel rides and I need to ride more often or just pass on that opportunity.  Can we spell C-H-I-C-K-E-N!!!

No, we’re not waiting for Batman, we’re in line for a ride on the Ferris Wheel.

Cookie and Bill – Logan is in the background preparing to go down the roof top slide.

A little post-processing fun with the Giant Praying Mantis that lives on the City Museum’s roof.

Finale shot of the day – didn’t think this one would turn out but it did. Fountain fun!

It was a long but fun day.
