we went on a little road trip this past weekend to st. louis which is about 5 hours from chicago.
we have family that lives just outside of the city, which is the reason for the trip.
jaxon thought he needed this winter hat before we left...um i think not. st. louis weather is no joke.
who thought 5 hours would make such a difference, it does!
we didn't go on this tour, but i thought it was a cute trolley
and we didn't go on a carriage ride,
it was way too hot for that.
so here's the view as you drive in to the city
and to my surprise, below the arch was a museum, for free!
i'm so not used to that living in chicago, nothing is free,
let alone a museum.
we took a ton of pictures but i'll only bore you with one.
then we picked up a few sweet treats and walked back to the car on this beautiful tree lined pathway.
and i should tell you, i had a love affair this weekend
with a couple rolls and the best butter i have ever tasted in all of my life
sweet cinnamon butter on some hot out of the oven bread.
this was seriously the highlight of my evening!
actually all the food we tried was amazing. i had a pulled pork sandwich that was also the best i've had in my life-delicious!
all in all, it was a great weekend spent with my cousins, aunts and uncles, my mama and little boy.
