Every year on Veteran’s Day,

we host a metro journey to

see the secret “Whispering Arch”

at Union Station.

Union Station is looking less than vibrant

these days, but the fudge shop still sings

and there are magic goldfish to still feed.

We will keep the faith and continue to

use our metro to visit.  The metro in

Saint Louis is clean, beautiful and runs

on time.  It is second to none in the world.

Plus, kids love a good train ride.

Hey look! When you get on the metro

at the Clayton Station, there is a sculpture

by Carol Fleming!  She’s the artist who

created “The Egg” at the Sensory Garden

at Shaw Park when we visited the

Adventure Playground in April 2011.

It’s important for kids to meet real

working artists.
