St. Louis Trip!

We spent this past weekend in St. Louis with my two best friends from childhood and their husbands. It was somewhat of a central meeting place for us. We came from Arkansas, another couple from Tennessee, and the other from Oklahoma. It was our first annual trip. We plan on doing this every year and hopefully going somewhere new each year. All of our wedding anniversaries fall within 4 months so we've kind of deemed it as our "annual anniversary trip". 

We got into town around noon on Friday. We had lunch on the patio at Three Kings Pub on the Delmar Loop. After lunch we did a little shopping and exploring of the area. We managed to find a few items we couldn't live without at a really cute store called Pitaya. You should go there if you're ever in the area.

Friday night we had dinner and drinks and then headed to a Cardinals game. The weather could not have been more perfect and the Cardinals won. It was a great night and we really enjoyed the game. Originally, we weren't going to see a game on this trip, but we all decided we should do it. Aaron and I were really glad we did. 

 Love these beautiful girls.
The whole gang.
The biggest St. Louis t-shirt emblem I've ever seen.
Did you know they mow the arch into the outfield? If you're blonde then you'll ask your husband what the circle in the outfield is for....and then your best friend will ask the same exact question hours later. Thank goodness we're on the same page :)

Saturday we got up and took a tour of the Anheuser-Busch Brewery. Holy cow that place is huge and it was very interesting to see. 

Saturday night we went to a fancy dinner at Charlie Gitto's italian restaurant. It was AH-MAZING! We indulged in some delicious desserts afterwards and had to roll ourselves out of the place. 

Sunday we woke up and went to the St. Louis Zoo. You know you're getting old when you go on a vacation and no one has kids, but you go to the zoo for fun. I must say, I wasn't all that impressed with the zoo. It was free so that was nice and we did see one super cool thing that was the highlight of our zoo trip.
 We got to see a baby Joey come out of his/her momma's pouch. It was seriously the cutest thing ever.
 You could tell he/she was new at the whole walking/hopping thing. It jumped way up in the air and face planted it in the grass. It was so funny and so cute. I thought that it might have been the first time for it to come out of the pouch. I didn't know if they went back in once they came out, but I looked it up afterwards and sure enough, they do go back in the pouch after they come out for the first time. You learn something new everyday.
 Bahaha. We never miss an opportunity to put our faces in these things.

We're so thankful for these sweet friends and the time we get to spend with them. Since we all live far away from each other, we really do cherish weekends like this one. Already looking forward to next year. We've talked about a few places to visit next, but if you have any suggestions, let me know. Love you guys. Thanks for such a wonderful weekend!
