St. Louis Road Trip…The Conclusion

The Famous Arch
After the Zoo Saturday morning, we headed over to the famous Arch.  We rode all the way up to the top…not good for anyone with claustrophobia…yes, all 5 of us fit in the cart below.  The kids took in the view from the top…
Mom liked the view from the bottom a little better…
Saturday night we headed over to the City Museum at the recommendation of several friends.  There’s absolutely no way to describe what this place is like until you get there.  Basically, it’s a giant playground for kids and adults.  They have everything from giant ball pits to humongous slides.  It really was amazing – we ended up staying for four hours.

One of the slides…
After church Sunday morning we headed to Busch Stadium to catch the Cards’ game.  It happened to be Albert Pujol’s MVP weekend so each of the kids got a promotional bat when we arrived…can’t you see the excitement on Caley’s face?
This kid wants nothing more than to be a pitcher…he loves it!
Little Brother showing his stuff…
And yes…Caley had to have a turn as well.
The view from the upper deck…we really enjoyed the stadium with the view of the skyline in the background.
If you know anything about the Big Leagues, you probably know that Albert Pujols is the Man.  He’s a great talent and from everything we know, a really good person as well.  I’ve never seen so many Pujols’ jerseys in my life…figured we might as well join the crowd.  The three amigo(a)s  below watching batting practice.
Taking in the action…
The Fam…
We had an incredible trip…it certainly won’t be the last time we visit St. Louis.  With so much to do (and so much of it being free), we couldn’t take it all in in two days.  Hopefully we created some memories that will continue to last for many years to come.  Where are we headed next???
