The lady inside was so sweet and very patient with us as we sampled different cheeses, many of which the kids turned up their noses. Mozzarella was the winner and we bought some for the kids to snack on during our trip. It brought back childhood memories of us and when we would eat hard cheese, straight off the block.
There certainly were more people there for the attractions and rides than the actual shopping part.
The prices were high but the kids enjoyed the atmosphere.
We’ve consumed a LOT of McDonald’s on this trip. I’m talking daily trips for coffee, frappes, milkshakes, fries, and apple slices! You would think that we were tired of seeing arches by now, but the Gateway Arch in St. Louis was a must see!
We heard that you have to try Imo’s Pizza while in St. Louis and although William doesn’t eat pizza, he claims that he tried it. If you call putting it up to your mouth, sticking your tooth in it, and instantly taking it away as “trying” it, then yeah, he tried it! The kids loved it, which was a shock considering it was thin crust!!
Perhaps, the most amazing thing about the St. Louis Zoo was the fact that, though it was free, the quality of the zoo was not sacrificed. We couldn’t help but think of all of the kids that are able to visit the zoo, who would not be able to if it wasn’t free.
A good friend of ours told us that we had to try Pappy’s BBQ and it did not disappoint! Thankfully, we phoned in the order because it was PACKED (always a good sign ) The line was wrapped around the outside of the building and the to-go line requires you to just stand outside the kitchen and grab someone as they come out.
On the way out of the city this morning, the sweet owner of a local donut shop asked if we are retired. We got to enjoy a nice ten minute conversation with her. Please join us in praying for her as she is dealing with some financial issues and recently was given custody of her 3 year old grandson. #thomas6travels #48statesover48dates
