S and I had a couple days away last weekend. Something fairly close to home, but far enough away that we didnt have to cook!
We had crepes as big as our head.
We took long walks, holding hands and dreaming of a time when we could do things like this all the time. Okay, fine. We did take long walks, tho. And I did let him hold my hand.
We passed this very pretty fountain. Back up. Did you see that water? That doesnt even look right.
This is what water is supposed to look like.
We went down to the arch. Yep. That right. The one and only St Louis Arch. We started out at the bottom.
We had to stand in line. Did you know that you have to take your belt off now to get into the arch? And they have to look in your purse. Good thing I cleaned it out before we left. Im just sayin.
Then we went in this door.
And inside we sat in these seats. 5 people fit in here. Very, very closely.
We went all the way up to here.
And we looked thru the windows and saw really way far down.
Once we got back down to ground level we went into a little gift shop. It was called a general store. What the heck kinda general store doesnt have licorice? This one. But they did have these. S and I found this a little disturbing. (Look at the little girls in the basket.)
I would have loved to have ridden on one of these. Maybe next time.
And of course, on the way home, we had to stop here. This was S's first time. Can you even believe that?
He did good.
Great weekend. Lots of fun. Good food. Just me and my husband. Im thinking we need to do that way more often.
