Earl and I are kicking back on the pace today and sort of just exploring St. Louis in a non-chalant way. Today we started the day at the Sciencenter.

There are many exhibits, displays and opportunities for interaction so that folks, especially young folks, can learn all sorts of things about our world. We decided to watch the feature presentation in the OmniMax theatre: Grand Canyon Adventure: River At Risk. It was my first time in an OmniMax theatre and I must say that the experience is well worth the admission. At times your senses can get overwhelmed but a quick glance away from the action and you’re fine.

Much like Animal Kingdom or Epicot at Walt Disney World, our visit to the Sciencenter got me thinking about what we can do back home to give back to Mother Earth. Earl and I decided to replace all of our toilets (which need replacing anyway) with more water conservation models and to change the shower heads as well. We already use a front loading washing machine, which uses considerably less water than a top loader, so we are already on the right track.

After the Sciencenter we stopped at the local Trader Joe’s to stock the hotel suite with a few healthy snacks and some breakfast goods. We are now revving up to hop back on the MetroLink and head into the city to continue the adventure.
