Checked into the hotel last night and This morning we woke up refreshed and ready for the day. we are headed to see the arch in St. Louis, it’s going to be a blast. Besides Jesse spilling coffee on his white shirt all was pretty smooth getting ready. He thinks that the coffee he spilt won’t stain and I’m saying, it totally will, so I tried to get him to bet 100$ On it, welll he won’t make the bet haha 😛
It was an interesting 2nd night. We’d been trying to fit ice cream in the plan for the day and it’s been tough and also nowhere we’re at had anything close. Finally we mapped a shell station 4 blocks away from our hotel (holiday inn) so we start getting closer and it turns out it was not a place we should have been at all. I’m sure you can picture this for yourself I don’t even need to describe our experience! I can tell you it was uncomfortable and scary. we’ll be researching where we walk next time, the question is “was the ice cream worth it?” YES IT WAS I think
Day 2 we also visited the aquarium, it was quite small but unique and the union station it was at had lots of fun things
Such a great day we had
When Tanner saw the arch he said “look it’s the city rainbow” lol pretty cool
This afternoon we visited the park where the arch is at and what a huge sight to see.
So we all bet on how long it would take to get to the top and Jesse bet 2 min, me 5, jilli 3 and rhy 4
Rhy won it takes 4 min to get to the top!
So tomorrow we go to the top.
One little bump to deal with was rhyanna is not afraid of heights but afraid of small spaces. She was brave tho and did it.
Jillian was all emailed taking in everything she could
This museum was very unexpected, I can’t even describe how awesome it was like nothing you’ll ever see.
It was the city museum of art made from reused materials. Kids had a blast
Bye Missouri off to Knoxville, we have a long ride ahead as we pass through, Illinois, Indiana and Kentucky and will arrive late in Knoxville.
Next day off to Fayetteville NC to see our favorite feldhauser family
Kids are doing very good and enjoying this road trip, but we’re most excited for a week at the beach
dinner in knoxville
cute little downtown of Fayetteville
We made it to the beach and now we’re going to live like beach bums! All unpacked and settled in, took a food trip in town to stock up the kitchen. First thing the kids did was hit the beach, jumping waves and screeching. Jesse and I got ready made ourselves a blended cocktail and did what we love best. Spending time with family and relaxing with cocktails in hand. So many laughs and conversations is the best And the week continues (more to come)
A few days in we went mini golf at our favorite place and boy was it hot, like an oven. Half way we notice tanner has sweat dripping down his face lol he says oh I’m sweaty and hot… lol
We now call him Mr sweats a lot :)
