The boy's cousin from Travis' side. We don't get to see him a whole lot.
We ended up going to their newish Ikea. The boys thought it was really fun to jump on their lit up arrows. That was cute for the first 2 arrows. Then Travis was done with that. I can put up with more boy noises then Travis. After awhile I was done to. I saw track lighting for our stairwell, rugs, and a few desks for Isaak that looked small enough for our house. I imagine in a few years we'll go back, and look again. I didn't end up buying any furniture. I did get 3 different slices of cake that we all split up.
2. We went to The Crown Plaza, which was a disappointment. I thought we'd see something to buy, but nope. Their shops aren't that great. Even their Crayola shop wasn't that fun. We did go to their train restaurant called Fritz's. It's a hamburger place that delivers your food on a little train that rides around the restaurant. If you ever go there expect a line. The boys said right off the bat, "I'm not wearing one of those hats!" Isaak copies whatever Mica says. I pleaded, and they tried them on. They must be growing up.
We stopped and saw some art to.
Closer to Saint Louis we camped for 2 nights.
3. We went on a cave tour at Meramec Cavern. That was my favorite spot!
