St Louis - The Magic House

*****Warning - the 4th of July was long - THIS ONE IS LONGER****
After a week in Paris we headed to St Louis for a couple of days to explore and learn. It was a lot of fun to see all the things St Louis had to offer. There are a lot of activities for kids that are free!! The Magic House is not one of those things, However IT IS WELL WORTH the money! It was Wonderful. We made it to St Louis late Tuesday night and decided to try out the Magic House on Wednesday, we had other things planned in case the day went fast, however, that was not the case. The Magic House is wonderful, we spent well over 7 hours there and the boys were not ready to leave, but at that point mom and dad were ready to go. It was very exciting and something worth making a trip for. Here are some pictures of our adventure!

Ready to go - The boys are not always excited to stop and take a picture but they do it anyway!;)

Brayson the human hockey puck!

The boys had fun working this puzzle on the big screen

Brazos enjoyed watching the balls roll and trying to predict where they would land

Braxton had fun filling the bottle with air to see how far it would shoot

Brazso with an air gun to make the wheel spin

Brayson spent over an hour playing with magnets

He had a good string of washers going

Braxton got in on the magnet action

And Brazos joined us

THere was a large metal ball there that would make your hair stand up, and since nobody in our family has any hair except me, well I got at turn to make my hair stand up. Major static electricity!!

There was a very large slide that went down three stories, so of course all the boys had to try that, a couple of time!! Braxton coming down

And Brazos

Then Brayson

THe bubble room was also a big hit - Braxton making a bubble around him

Andy blowing on a bubble plane that Brazos had made

Brazos making a bubble on the table with a large hose

The Pulley system was also a favorite with my boys. They worked really hard to get themselves up to the top.

Brayson enjoyed building with the blocks

Braxton playing with the balls in the bell maze

The the water room!! Huge fun

Of course Braxton had to find a way to block the water. He is such an engineer!

How much fun can some kids have?

Giant legos!!! Of course we had to build a fort, they all worked together and got it done.

Some other boys joined us at the end for a picture. Great job guys!

The boys found a car that needed some repair and of course went right to work.

And Andy got in on the action with Tangrams

There was a Jack in the Bean Stalk ladder that went up three stories and the boys climbed their way up and down, Brayson making his way up

We found a room that had these giant building pieces, It was fun to see what they could come up with.

Brayson building

There was a section where you have to slove a crime and they give you steps to follow and one of the step is in a lab, there are glasses in there and of course Braxton played the part and played it well. Good job detective!
