St. Louis

We completed our trip to Iowa with a few days spent in St. Louis on the way back. Sadly, I didn't take nearly as many pictures. I guess we were too busy to think about such things!

We arrived in St. Louis in time to meet Aaron's brother, Caleb, with the moving truck. Caleb is headed to seminary there so we were glad to help he and Katie get unloaded and semi unpacked. They have a great apartment (wish I had taken some pics). Sadly, Katie got sick so we cut our time in their apartment short and stayed with some friends of theirs. We also got to hang out with Aaron's parents and their Bethany baby. It was so good to see them! We really enjoyed eating out together, shopping at Trader Joe's and just hanging out.

Friday, our last day in St. Louis, we set off for the Arch since I had never even seen it. We were there fairly early and didn't have to wait too long to go up. It was fun and had quite the view!

We are looking forward to going back to St. Louis to visit Caleb and Katie again...there seems to be a lot of fun stuff there.

I love visiting and exploring new places. Have you gone anywhere new or fun this summer?

I went to China! Ha!
I love St. Louis. My grandparents used to live there and I have pictures of the Arch and the newer Busch stadium being built. So many things to do there. Best 4th of July fireworks I ever saw were in SL. And Broadway musicals presented outdoors at the Muni. Marlon Perkins at the zoo. Lots of memories!

We are heading to Monterrey California to see baby Chandler when she arrives! Excited about that. And Iowa was a blast. St. Louis does have a lot to do . . .
