On our way to West Virginia, we went through St. Louis. We were in a hurry, but we managed to stop for about an hour and snap some photos around the Gateway Arch. Terry and I came here together for a “belated honeymoon” trip over 15 years ago. It was nice to come back and this time, bring our five precious children. They were able to run off some energy on the multitude of steps that go up to the Arch. (We had been in the van for about nine hours by the time we reached St. Louis, and were only halfway to WV!)

I missed getting Matthew! Oops…

You can barely see Matthew on the end. He didn’t understand what he was supposed to do. πŸ™‚

My little stair-steps. πŸ™‚

We all had a great time in St. Lou-ie. πŸ™‚

    St. Louis has many great spots for tourists and family adventures. The arch is just one of them. Maybe someday you will get a chance to go back and spend more time there with your family. πŸ™‚

    We were just in St. Louis ourselves, but it wasn't for fun. My daughter was having some tests done at Cardinal Glennon children's hospital. Its always fun to drive by that beautiful arch, though.


  5. Thank you, Tori! We had a blast and we are so grateful that the Lord gave us safety.


  6. πŸ™‚ It *was* impressive!


  7. We would love to go back sometime. I hope you can go back for fun sometime, too. πŸ™‚
