STL for Easter: Tower Grove Park

As I shared before I spent my long Easter weekend with my family in St. Louis.  On Saturday morning my sister, Cam, and I went with my mom to a garage sale, where she had already been that morning, to pick up her new finds.  On the way home my mom drove through an area of the city I had not yet visited:  Tower Grove Park.  One of my favorite things about STL, at least the area my parents live in, are the gorgeous parks.  The first thing to grab my attention while driving through the park were the different pavilions.  Never seen anything like it before:




These two were my favorite.  I could have spent the whole day walking through the park getting photos of each pavilion.  But I could tell Cam was starting to get a little sick of me yelling "STOP" so I could get out of the car to take another picture of something else. 

What I also enjoyed about Tower Grove was how it made you feel as though you are hidden away and not in the middle of a big city.  A great place to get lost for a while in a good book while resting on a blanket after a nice stroll.  



And in case you cannot tell, I kinda have a thing for benches.  I love the black bench under the trees.  Cant you just see an old man reading the newspaper with his cane propped up against the bench while he reads?  Very Finding Neverland.  

This reminded me of the last scene in Pride & Prejudice (the one with Keira Knightly) where Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy are looking longingly into each others eyes talking about their love for one another.  

When I visit again I am going to have to spend more time here.  Give me nature and my camera and I am content for hours.  

Hope everyone has a great weekend.  And a Happy Mother's Day to all you Mothers and future Mothers out there!
