St Louis!

We had such a fun weekend celebrating our fifth anniversary together. Isaac stayed in KC with a friend and we got our first night (actually 2 nights) away from him together soon since he was born. Though we missed him, it was really nice to get a break….. And even though there were some unforeseen slightly ridiculous circumstances, we had a great time together.

The non-raining pics are from how are accidental trip over the Mississippi River and into East St. Louis, Illinois. Whoops! Haha…. The raining pictures are from our trip out of St. Louis on our way back to Kansas City on Sunday morning. How refreshing it was to see some water falling from the sky! I’d almost forgotten what rain looked like!

On Friday evening we spent several hours at the city Museum. All I can say is, WOW! That is one incredible place. I played so hard that I was sore for three days afterwards. 🙂 Saturday morning we spent several hours at a coffee shop just journaling, reading, and talking. It was sooooo refreshing. We grabbed lunch at an amazing Italian restaurant in The Hill, an Italian area in St. Louis….yummmmm…. followed by a relaxing afternoon hanging out at our hotel, swimming, reading, and talking…. and then a fun dinner out at the Boathouse, a restaurant on a lake. A good time was had by all, including Isaac who enjoyed his time at home with Jerusha immensely. He did really well in our absence, and was very excited to see us when we walked in the door…. almost as excited as we were to see him. 🙂

Mental note: we must go out of town again together before 2 more years go by.


Know someone who'd appreciate this?
