Some things over the Memorial Day weekend made me sad, like this little mansard buddy near Ohio and Sidney in St. Louis near St. Francis de Sales. It's owned by Stanfield Investments and delinquent in taxes.
But the remainder of the weekend was filled with visually pleasing things. Our girl scout troop had planned to go to the Junior Jamboree at Forest Park. That event was cancelled due to low registration likely due to the fact the Girl Scouts had no publicity for the event, especially when compared to the PR overkill they are doing on the Big Day for Girls on September 22. We are probably skipping the Big Day for Girls. The 100 birthday bash was traumatizing and I am not sure I can handle that kind of crowd again, especially on a precious Saturday.
Back to the picture. Our troop (now Juniors!) went to Forest Park anyway with absolutely no plan. And it was a good day. We fed the ducks, played on the playground, took the Metro bus around the park and hung out at the History Museum where low and behold we had a campfire in front of a VW bus.
And lots of other good stuff- bike racks, hydrangea, digging rocks.
|These bike racks have been popping up everywhere. I think they are handsome.|
|OMG. Is there anything better looking than this year's hydrangea? I have NEVER seen them this colorful.|
|BBQ at the neighbors where the local kids ruined a lovely landscaped garden by digging rocks to haul around in dumptrucks. Sorry Jen!|
