Last week we finally took that little trip I have been dropping hints about. I wanted to give all the details and post photos along the way but we are “those” people. You know, the ones who don’t announce their vacation where abouts until they arrive back home. I could honestly go either way on the issue but the husband is pretty set on keeping things on the down low so I play along.
We left the morning of Marissa’s 7th birthday and spent 4 days and 3 night in St. Louis seeing the sites, making memories and having a blast. I am quickly going to run you through our first couple of days and show you loads of photos along the way.
Our first stop upon arriving was White Castle for some lunch. We have a list of food places that we must eat at while in St. Louis and White Castle is one of them. After lunch we headed to The Magic House.
(This is Emily’s presidential face)
Emily mastered the photo bomb in an all in kind of way.
The Magic House was great as always. The girls are pretty much the perfect age to play and enjoy that place for hours.
After The Magic House we hit up Dewey’s Pizza. Maybe the best pizza St Louis has too offer.
Our zoo day was kind of cool and rainy but I think that made for the perfect day. The animals were out, active and it wasn’t too hot either.
What is a zoo trip without a carousel ride?
St. Louis has the most amazing penguin house. It is FREEZING cold in there but being feet away from these amazing penguins was awesome.
We loved the seals so much we went back to say goodbye and made a friend while we were there too.
After the zoo we had to find a Trader Joe’s so I could stock up on some Cookie Butter and other Trader Joe’s essentials. Joplin REALLY needs a Trader Joe’s.
Then we had dinner at Fitz’s bottling company. They bottle Fitz’s soda’s here and we were able to take a peek at how they do that while enjoying some great food and root beer.
Just being together out of town was so much fun.
I’ll fill you in on the rest of our trip later this week!
