Quoted From A Fellow Traveler:

Life is short, Break the rules, Forgive quickly, Kiss slowly, Love truly, Laugh uncontrollably, And never regret anything that made you smile. Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we're here we should dance.

Forest Park

We visited Forest Park
The entrance street (Route 66), is lined with million dollar homes.

Each home is different and unusual in design.

Parking at the visitors center is free and there is plenty of room. The parks is also pet friendly.
Joyce is heading in to get a map of the park because this park is HUGE.
Strolling along we came upon the boathouse where we could have lunch. They also have free water and snacks for you dog, Casey loved that.
You can rent a paddle boat, or bicycles. There were three WWII model boats docked that later took out to the pond for a cruise.
After lunch we continued our stroll around the park. Gardens were everywhere.
 This is the 1904 Worlds Fair Pavilion.
This was dedicated to the athletic games that took place during the 1904 Fair.
 High on the hill is the Museum of History
We couldn't believe how beautiful everything was in the park. Gardens, fountains, bridges, waterways, and all the museums were just beautiful and well maintained.
And here come the boats.
The trees were starting to show their colors.
This was another one of those areas that you needed days to really see everything. As we exited the park there was this large steel art structure.
