The Magic House.

Up early and down to the free breakfast at the hotel then we were all off to find The Magic House. The Magic House is a children’s museum complete with lots of hands-on learning experiences in a child friendly atmosphere. This was on Emily’s list of things to see in St. Louis. One of the exhibits was a replica of the Oval Office where kids can sit at the desk and and also try out making speeches at the podium.

Another fun exhibit was the court room exhibit where kids can put on the judge’s robe and be the judge.


Judge Emily listening as William testifies on his own behalf.


Judge Emily about to pass sentence on her brother William.


As you can see William did not like Judge Emily’s sentence. LOL

If you have children or grandchildren this is a great place for them to experience fun while learning. There is so much to see and do.


William trying out the compact track loader.


Even John found something to play with. LOL


Emily scooping rocks.

After the tour of The Magic House we had some sandwiches and then it was back on the road to Leavenworth, KS. On the drive back we all decided to stop for dinner before going home. Tricia treated us all to burger, fries and salad at a local place in Leavenworth called The Town Pub. Thanks Tricia. Tricia, John and I enjoyed the old fashioned burgers and fries while William and Emily chose the the salad bar. Yep, that’s right the children ate healthier than the adults. LOL

Laugh everyday. Happy trails. Stay safe.
