and the Science Center, which had a special exhibit with replicas of King Tut's treasures.
The City Museum had so many things for kids to do, along with surreal art, that Alex wanted to stay there all day. (We only saw part of it.)
The main reason we went down to Saint Louis was to see Cahokia, the site of a Native American city. About all you can see today are the mounds they created for their ceremonial buildings and a recreation of Woodhenge, which helped the residents identify the first day of each season.
Of course, no trip to Saint Louis would be complete without a visit to the Arch. We also saw the Old Courthouse where Dred and Harriet Scott sued for their freedom.
We had a misadventure with our stuffed animals Stan, Rex, and Oscar Friday evening when their traveling satchel was left behind at a restaurant. We had to make a 40-minute round trip to get it, but luckily "the boys" were still there.
We spent a lot of time in the car on this vacation, but I read several books during the trip and nearly caught up with my Goodreads reading challenge. I also finished my second pass-through of Summon the Seasons on the Kindle, but I still have to update the text before I send it out to beta readers.
