St. Louis 2009

View of the Arch and the moon from our hotel room

We had a really nice time in St. Louis this week. We visited with Elaine and Sandy Knaebel in Kirkwood and then headed to downtown St. Louis.

Gateway Arch Park

Base of the Arch

The Arch is a Memorial to Thomas Jefferson for the Louisiana Purchase and for financing Lewis and Clark's expedition to the West

After our tour we went to The Hill, St. Louis's Little Italy section. We had a really nice meal at Guido's. The owner is actually from Madrid so we had tapas and flan although there were Italian options too. A delicious meal and a great trip!
