Grandma's 102nd Birthday, Saint Louis Carousels, Citygarden, Turtle Sculpture Park & Record Exchange

LuluComment

The purpose of our trip to St. Louis, Missouri was to celebrate Chris' grandma's 102nd birthday. As I have told you before his grandma is an amazing woman who has a vibrant spirit and amazes us all with her longevity...

While in St. Louis we also visited two different carousels, the Citygarden sculpture park, the giant turtle sculpture park, and the Record Exchange...

The Conservation Carousel at the St. Louis Zoo is packed full of protected and endangered animals. We didn't ride on it- but, maybe next time. The seal with the pups tucked under her saddle and the red panda were my favorite critters...

A fun frog sculpture at the zoo...

This is the old Forest Park Highlands Carousel. Posted below is the carousel animal that I rode on...

Record Exchange (5320 Hampton Ave.) is an enormous store with the largest selection of vintage vinyl that I have ever seen...
