Explore St. Louis: The Magic House

On my last day of maternity leave, Jackson and I met up with my sister and her boys and some friends of ours at the Magic House,or as Jackson calls it, the "Monster House". I hadn't been to the Magic House since I was in grade school, so it was fun to go back and see how much it has changed and grown. Jake took Jackson last year on a Saturday when I was busy, so Jackson had been there, but it had been years since I was there. It has changed a lot since then and has gotten so much bigger and they've added some really great things.

They have a whole section where the kids can play in a bank, water company, pizza parlor, veterinary hospital, they can fish, work on a car, build in a construction area, sit at the President's desk, be a judge/jury in a courtroom, and so much more! There was lots of areas to play and learn, its just a really cool place and I'm so happy we have it right here in St. Louis. 

An extra this summer was a sand pit outside. The kids could play in the sand and get wet in the sprinklers. They also had built this really great sand castle there. The kids had so much fun.

Here are some pictures I took with my phone that day.

And of course, we couldn't leave without getting a picture with the STL250 Cake! :-) As of this past weekend, we have seen 135 of the 250 cakes!
