City Museum

That should about wrap up our day. Except we bookended it with chatting in the morning and a birthday party at a brewery (Schafley) in the evening.

The City Museum is like no other place I have been before.
It is an old shoe factory that has been transformed.
The transformation includes parts of other factories, buses, planes ….

And slides – there are slides everywhere.
And a ferris wheel on top.
And at least two mazes – they go up and down, and through holes, and down slides, and across the ceiling overhead of those below.
And did we mention the slides, including a 10 story slide.
Which 3 of the 4 of us went down, spiralling down until the last bit straightened out.
And the slide that started with squeezing into the top part, to make sure you could fit into the tube. And down and through the tube, but not quite all the way out so you had to scooch the last bit.
And the glass bottle wall, and ….. on and on. Here are a few pictures.

And then we went to lunch at The Fountain on Locust.
They serve martinis.
And ice cream.
And after about 5 pages of drinks and desserts – they had sandwiches, soups and salads.
One of our party had dessert for lunch, but the sandwich I had was delicious.

For a one day trip – it was great.
(Great hosts help out immensely, along with the temperature staying below 90)

    What a lot of great adventures to fit into one day!! We were there for a weekend and didn’t get to do that much. Of course, we spent most of our time watching gymnastics in a gym.
