St. Louis and CTMH Regional Celebrations

Last week was CTMH's Regional Celebrations and we decided to make a mini family vacation out of it so hubby and daughter went with me. We decided to go to the St. Louis Zoo because we had heard great things about it and it was free. Well we soon found out there's nothing free about the St. Louis Zoo except walking through the gate but of course you had to pay $15 to park before you could do that. LOL

 We were very impressed with their landscaping and foliage. I took several photos of the flowers and scenery. It was gorgeous! There were also several statues throughout that were very impressive. I loved these guys at the entrance. It reminded me of my two kiddos. If you look closely the one seal is spraying the other one with water. Typical siblings. LOL

While I was in classes they went downtown to several museums and site seeing doing things that my daughter wanted to do like the Art Museum. Hubby didn't think he was going to enjoy that one but he really got into it. I'm sad I missed it. Another day they did more of hubby's things which included a trip to Bass Pro & Cabellas. It's a good thing they have Starbucks to keep my daughter satisfied!

On our final day it was my day! I had never been to Archiver's and it was top on my list. I LOVED it! I'm almost glad there's not one close to me because it could be very dangerous. I also went to two local shops that kept some of my money too. St. Louis definitely has paper crafters covered with fabulous products. Even their Michaels was better than around here. I came home with a bag full of goodies to use in my Disney albums.

Of course this pic is before I went in so no bags YET. I'll share my projects and haul soon.
