SB Part 3: St. Louis And One Car Accident Later


This is exactly how it sounds: went to St. Louis with the kids for a quick, two day trip and got into a car accident that totaled our Highlander. What a spring break, since we weren't even supposed to be there! But after the stomach flu took a couple of kids out for a few days, we chose from our list of Must Go's and picked St. Louis. The kid's cousin and my sister and brother in law met us. We surprised their cousin at the Zoo. The rest of the evening was a blur since we got into the accident leaving the zoo, but the next day was filled with fun at City Museum.

We LOVE the St. Louis Zoo. It's one of our favorites. It's a big bonus that it's free to get into. Somehow, we had never been the the City Museum. I would love to make a return trip to crawl around all of the spaces. I hurt my hand in the accident and was reluctant to do much of the climbing and slides, so I definitely think we'll have a re-do at some point.

Hubs had to drive down, in his brother's car since rentals were nonexistent due to spring break, to bring us home. But since I choose to live a life of no regrets, we finally crossed the City Museum off of our list and I got a new minivan out of the deal. The accident wasn't fun, but we're very lucky because our insurance company has made this one a breeze and we all walked away unharmed (minus some bruises and my sore hand).
