On another of my Mom’s days off this summer she and I took kiddo on the Anheuser Busch tour. Yep we’re good St. Louisans and we take the tour at least once a year, always interesting to see how they change the tours and I never get tired of seeing the Clydesdales, and the architecture. Kiddo asks to go on the tour now, lol. The cake features the Clydesdales hitch.
So kiddo and I actually went to the Museum of Transportation finally this summer with my mom on one of her days off. When we got there we found the cake looked a bit different before you know back on day 6 when it looked like this:
I had noticed the sketching from a distance and thought that someone had written on the cake, then got in close and realized it was actual sketches. I wondered if they were going to stay sketches or get colored in. Well now we know:
There is a whole lot more going on on this cake now than just a few months ago and I love it! I think every method of transportation portrayed on the cake is at the Museum and I absolutely love the Yellow Brick Road coming out of the road on the top of the cake.
It seems I’ve gotten behind in posting the cakes we’ve visited. Over the summer kiddo, hubby and I headed to Missouri Botanical Garden. I had been previously but neither my husband nor my son had so off we went. Wednesdays and Saturdays before noon St. Louis City and County residents get in free. The cake for the Garden is right out front and beautiful as is the Garden itself.
This 79 acres of gardens makes it so easy to forget that you’re in the middle of a city. There are gardens of all varieties. We walked around for a few hours and still didn’t see everything. We will definitely be going back. Here are just a few of the pictures I took while we walked around. There is some amazing glass art and other sculptures throughout the park as well as several historical buildings. And of course there’s the Climatron. All in all a great way to spend a day!
Thurs of tourist week with kiddo, niece, aunt, and cousin. Mom and other aunt joined us and off we headed to Purina Farms to see all the animals: cows, horses, rabbits, dogs, kitties, my aunt’s favorite the piggies. We petted baby pigs, a rabbit, and some chickens strangely enough. We enjoyed the dog show, kiddo has since been trying to get my sister’s dog who is staying with us while they go on vacay to do some agility stuff. Hmm might be time to get him his own dog and get them enrolled in an agility class together. The cake here was no surprise and it is adorable.
Hubby had a big birthday this summer, 40, so he took the day off and we took kiddo to Six Flags for the first time ever. He’s finally tall enough to ride almost all of the rides. We were excited to see the cake there but I was bewildered when we did because it seems to have nothing to do with it’s location. It looks more like a cake that belongs at the zoo than the one that is at Six Flags St. Louis, which will always and forever in my head be Six Flags over MidAmerica.
So recently I was hanging out with my best friends for a girls’ night. We talked a bit about the StL250 birthday cakes, I pulled up the list of cakes and discovered that there were two new installations very near to where we live. So kiddo and I headed out to see them. The first is at Babler State Park, we camped there just last fall, it’s a beautiful place. The bottom of the cake lists many of the things you can do in the park the top shows them in the hiker, biker, tent, and horse with rider.
There is another state park not far from us as well. We have often gone walking the trail along the Meramec River, we’ve seen races there as well. Castlewood State Park is a hidden gem in the middle of suburbia.
