St. Louis recap

We had a really nice time down in St. Louis (see previous post for some pictures). I am very glad we had a chance to go down and spend time with the relatives there that we just don't get to see because of the miles that separate us!

I could thousands of words about the entire trip, but instead will just recap it this way:

We visited the Arch, the Budweiser Brewery and a winery called Mount Pleasant in Augusta. We also took a mini road trip out to Illinois to go boating and hang out on a beach there. We also got to go to a Cardinals game one evening. And we celebrated two graduations and a birthday while we were there. Overall, a good time had by all, even though it was more or less in the upper 90's and even into the 100's the whole time we were there!

There were also moments that led to us joking by the end of the week that it was "Murphy's Law" vacation at times too. Out of respect for my family I won't divulge much on that, but let me just say that each of the five of us MN peeps had one not so pleasant experience while on the trip. I totally believe we'll look back and laugh later though!

I'm glad to be home at any rate and looking forward to the rest of the summer being a little bit calmer. I'm still not loving summer any longer and definitely am ready for Fall and am not minding that the calendar says "August 1st" today, because that means we're inching closer to my favorite season of all time!

I can't believe it's August 1st already! Crazy! Hopefully fall will come shortly and we will have relief from this heat!

I'm glad you're back safe and that you got to see everyone down there at least!

I don't know what you mean about "later". I've been laughing about it since I got home!!
