St. Louis

Due to the fact that Eric will be in the desert during our 3rd year anniversary, we took our trip early this year. We have a tradition of going to a new city each year to celebrate. We have visited Houston, Kansas City, and this year, it was St. Louis. Its a wonderful tradition, one because you dont have to worry each year what you're going to do, you just have to pick the place! And, you don't have a chance of getting stuck in a rut, cause there are always new cities to visit.
We had an absolutely wonderful time being together, with no distractions, and it just the two of us. The weather wasn't the greatest, except for one day, which was all we needed to go see the Arch and attend a Cardinals game. We even got in FREE, thanks to military discount. Below are the pictures of our time together this weekend. We are so so grateful for the time the Lord has given us with eachother.

My own arch.=)

Eric getting ready to take a cruise on the dinner boat on the Mississippi River.

Being silly, therefore, being Eric.
We did quite a bit of shopping on one of the days that it was raining. And yes, those are all HIS purchases. Ok, maybe only a couple. Okay, maybe only one.

We ate at IMO's, apparently the best St. Louis style pizza there was. It was pretty delicious, but then again, I am ALWAYS up for some pizza. Really thin and crispy and they used mozzerella and cheddar cheese. It was fun to go to a local place and try the cuisine.
Sushi for dinner! So so yummy!

The St. Louis Cardinals. It was so fun to go to a baseball game with Eric. And all-American sport and of course I teared up when we sang the National Anthem. Can't help it when you're taking next to a soldier.=)

Waiting for the game to start.

Pujolas, their best player, hit a GRANDSLAM! It was incredible!!!!

We had a mullet sitting right in front of us. Couldn't help but take a picture. They're becoming a lost art!
Dinner at Maggiano's. So good.

Our massive bowl of Chicken Pesto Linguine with pine nuts that looked hardly untouched after we were finished dinner. Never never get a full serving - always order half.

I LOVE your St. Louis pictures! We honeymooned there, so I have a lot of the same pictures and such good memories of the place.
