St. Louis Getaway

So the hubs and I went to St. Louis for a few days the week before Easter. It was a mini vacation getaway together, as well as our Anniversary vacation, which was a month prior. With our current schedules, finding time to get away together is difficult. When I'm in school, he's out and vis versa, so it was nice to just BE together, sit around, talk, watch cable, and simply getaway from the normal routine.

We planned to enjoy a day at Six Flags, but I got the dates wrong and it was only open on the tornado weather day... so we plan to come back for a quick visit to use our Six Flags Tickets this summer! Can't wait.

We drove up on Wednesday and left Friday morning for Kansas City, KS. Here is our trip in photos:

On the road - showing off my new hairdo (cut the day before)
Cannot drive through Sikeston without a stop at Lambert's!
My hubs got us the hook up! Priceline: Hyatt downtown for $65 per night, upgraded to a Arch View King Room. NICE!
The Arch: cannot help but get mesmerized by it!
Just a hop, skip, and a jump from our hotel!
We did the Budweiser Busch Brewery Tour - FREE and very cool. Gorgeous buildings!
The Budweiser clydesdale horses are beautiful and massive!
The clydesdale stables are immaculate - I know this is a shot of horses' backsides, but took it for my niece's son, Clayton who loves Thomas the train - see the name of the horse on the right.
Mr. McGoo also scored us 5th row up tickets by 1st base for the Cardinals - $32 total!
Beautiful ballpark!
This is the photo I was taking when I missed the guy on the RIGHT ticket, who is amazing, hitting a HOMERUN! oops. At least I saw the replay on the big screen.
Self-portrait at the Cardinals game! BEAUTIFUL WEATHER!

As always, I enjoyed being with the hubs and seeing some sites. We had a great time and were so thankful we had a chance to step away from our routine and see St. Louis. We'll be back for more!

Good to see you finally updated our trip. Also good to see you took off that instagram-like feature on your phone. I've had enough of seeing everyone's pictures look like they were taken in the 70's

So fun! Isn't the brewery tour SO cool? Ryan loved it. We went at Christmas and it was so cool to see the horses!
