Laumeier Sculpture Park Adventure

On Friday, Super Koala and I trekked out into the wilderness with Big Crazy. We wound up spending a little more than an hour at Laumeier Sculpture Park, which is probably one of the coolest parks in St. Louis.

We took our adventure backpack, filled with applesauce, water, and granola bars, and headed out to spend some quality time outside. Upon arrival, Super Koala and I began to wander the park grounds in search of great works of art, which wasn’t hard to do because you can’t go anywhere in the park without having a sculpture in eyesight.

The first sculpture we came across was the one depicted above. The eyeball could see all except for whoever was sitting on top of it, which is a feat all in itself.

Next, we came to a lovely pit of happiness which had excellent acoustics inside. It was the perfect place to sing songs.

This year is the 250th birthday of our great city of St. Louis. To celebrate, there are metal cakes placed all around the city at historical landmarks.

Then we conquered the great feat of actually going on a nature hike. It was a pretty big deal for us seeing as we normally only go outside to walk Big Crazy. However, this walk looked promising. The pup and I scaled the great modern Mayan pyramid, however getting her to go down was a little harder.

We then came upon the cutest little dog village and couldn’t help but take a dogzilla picture. She is probably the cutest dogzilla ever; I wouldn’t mind if she came to stomp on my house.

A, E, I, O, U, and sometimes Y!

Finally, the last stop on the nature walk was obviously a classroom and seeing as Super Koala is an English teacher, we had to document it. To exit the hike, we had to trudge up an incredibly steep hill that I don’t exactly remember going down, so I don’t know how we got to the point of going up it. Anywho, we determined that it would be much easier if everyone had four legs because Big Crazy traversed the terrain like a pro.

Great hiding place.

After exiting the trail, we came across one last sculpture. This one had many great passageways that made excellent hiding places. All in all, our park adventure was a success and I have deduced that I could be a sculptor, because the sculpture next to the parking lot was just a big black blob, so in reality, anyone can be a sculptor!
