John and I went to St Louis a couple of weekends ago to see the Colts on the road. We managed to do a lot in a very short time. We got there about 4:00 and went straight to the Budweiser brewery for a tour, which was pretty cool. Then we had dinner on “the hill,” which is the Italian district. We had a great Italian meal. Our waitress told us about an ice cream place that is apparently “famous” on Route 66 called Ted Drewes. We couldn’t resist checking it out (especially if it meant going on infamous Route 66), and when we got there the place was ridiculously busy! People were all over this building like ants on picnic crumbs. John got a strawberry shortcake (“what’s the best thing you have that doesn’t have chocolate in it” – weirdo! 🙂 ) that we shared, and it was delicious!
The next day we went to the arch in the morning. They had a really nice museum at the bottom that we toured while we waited our turn to go up. After the arch it was game time! There were so many Colts fans, it seemed like a home game! St Louis is not doing well at all this year, so naturally they are not getting the home crowds that you do when you are doing well. The Colts won easily.
Hayden stayed with Grandma and Grandpa while we were away. He had a ball! Grandma’s toy room wins again. I’m not sure he was actually ready to come home when we picked him up. He didn’t want us to leave, but he didn’t seem in a hurry to leave himself!
