Bet you thought we fell off the face of the earth...we didn't, but travel has cut into the blog schedule. I thought about blogging from St Louis but then I decided the trip was about family time and that just didn't include blogging (it always takes longer than you ever expect when sitting down to write). Anyway, the trip was great...I have lots to share, the visit to Red Lead (fabulous), historic St Charles, and some other fun shops.
A visit to the downtown waterfront park was on my short list of things to see in St Louis. I wish I would have known to bring a blanket so my husband and I could lay on the grassy hill in the shadow of the arch and watch the clouds go by.
The weather was warm, the clouds were moving fast, children were running and laughing, a bride was having her photo taken, a school group with bright yellow t-shirts crossed the lawn.
All in the shadow of the arch.
But the view when you get there...fabulous.
