meet me in St. Louis

We had a wonderful weekend in St. Louis!

It was a bit chilly, in the high 50s-low 60s, & very windy but we're just thrilled that we're not dealing with 100 degree temps anymore so we enjoyed it!

We were able to see:

-the famous St. Louis arch & the awesome greenspace around it...we even rode up in the capsule train 630 feet to the top...what a ride! It's so much wider & taller than I ever imagined. We stayed on the 26th floor of the Millenium Hotel & when we woke up each morning we could see the sun rising over the river & behind the arch...gorgeous!

-The Museum of Westward Expansion which is an awesome free history museum beneath the arch. Chris loved it & just like always, he read every word of every display!

-Busch Stadium where the Cardinals beat the Rockies in the bottom of the 11th inning. It was "Stand for Stan day" at the ballpark to honor famous Cardinal, Stan Musial. It was so neat to see such a famous baseball player honored.

-the Mississippi River...alas, I have seen the mighty Mississippi. Unfortunately, it wasn't as mighty as I had imagined. Oh well, it was still nice to see!

-the Budweiser Clydesdale stable & some of their infamous horses...they're so tall & so pretty!

-the historic Old St. Louis Courthouse where the Dred Scott case was 1st heard.

So glad we took the time to get away & enjoy some time together!

looks like a great trip!! AND Chris shaved! I love going somewhere and it's cooler and you get to wear jackets versus sweating to death. Yay for trips!
