Okay if you missed part one, go here to read about our adventure at City Museum. When we got back to the hotel late, I was exhausted, but the head cold I had been battling reared it's ugly head and I couldn't breath. No breathing equals no sleeping. I had two very big pillows, so was trying to sleep sitting up, but no bueno. I tried going into the bathroom and running hot water so that steam enveloped the room, which did open up my sinuses, but only for a limited time. I know I got a few minutes of sleep here and there, but overall, I am betting I got no more than 3 hours of continuous sleep. Since Tony knew I had had a rough night, he got up and went to breakfast with the family while Andrew and I slept in. Our goal for the day was the zoo. Unfortunately, by the time we got up and going and over to the zoo, the entire Forest Park area was FULL of cars, and we sat in bumper to bumper traffic for over an hour and NEVER found any parking. Well, I take that back, we found one spot, which didn't help since we were in two cars. We abandoned the zoo idea and headed over to Grant's Farm, which was also VERY FULL. We just gave up and settled on a BBQ restaurant for lunch and a trip to walgreens for drugs (so I could get some sleep), and a treat for andrew for being so good while we sat in traffic. Afterwards, we headed back to the hotel for more swimming

I am so glad that we missed the zoo and found this place instead! While the zoo is cool, we have cool zoos at home, but we don't have cool science museums (unless people of Kansas can tell us where to go)! After several hours of playing and discovering, we headed back to Kansas. We got home right before the storms hit luckily! We are still recovering from our trip but still smiling about the memories:) We are looking forward to another mini vacation in June to see Mel and Pat get married out in Colorado.
