Downtown Des Moines: Not something we do often

So, this last weekend was some GREAT weather.  Cool enough temps to be outside and warm enough that you don’t have to sweat!  I love fall!  I wanted to do something different, that we had not done before.  So, we ventured downtown to the Pappajohn Sculpture Park.   We don’t venture downtown very often.  Mostly for the hospital.  That is about it.  It’s not somewhere I like to go, nor really want to go.  I do know there is a lot of cool stuff we are missing out on.  We got a sneak peak of it this weekend!

I had wanted to see the sculpture park, but figured it wasn’t going to be that thrilling for the kids.  So I rounded up my friend and her crew!  The kids had a lot of  fun running around in the grass and admiring the artwork.  Some of it was quite interesting, to say the least. 

We then went and checked out the new pedestrian bridge.  I would have to say that it was pretty cool.  The kids were a little timid on it.  Such a big thing can be scary!  By the pedestrian bridge is a Pagoda.  I had no clue what it was called, but a friend informed me it isn’t an Asian Hut thingy!  It’s something you drive by when you are on 235 and say, “what is that? we should go check that out.”  Well, we finally did!  The kids loved exploring and looking around everything!  I am glad we took the time and checked these downtown items out! 

Here are some pictures from our fun!
