We left Friday and Brian drove most of the way and even let me take a nap. I thought these clouds were pretty cool looking.
We took our time getting to Saint Louis, stopping probably more than we should have but we didn't want to rush and just take things easy. I snapped this picture as we were heading into the parking garage at the hotel.
Saturday we got up and headed to breakfast and then Sonya and I had to go buy shoes because we were going to the Schlafly Brewery tour next and in order to take the tour you can't wear open toes shoes, all we had were flip flops and sandals. We are lucky enough to be close to Saint Louis that we get this beer delivered to our local groceries. Last year I fell IN LOVE with their pumkpin ale, and that is saying something because I normally don't drink beer. But as I have always known it is an aquired taste that I seem to be getting more and more of.
Later that afternoon we went out for a late lunch at Fitz's. They were even bottling while we were eating lunch. We sat upstairs overlooking the restaurant and it was a pretty cool view.
It rained Saturday afternoon/night, in fact we thought it would be a good idea to walk around after lunch, see the sights and stores and we were looking for a cupcake place we thought was close. We were walking, realized that the cupcake place was a LOT farther than we thought and that it was about to rain and turned around to head back to the car. It was a good thing we turned around when we did because we didn't even make it to the car before it started pouring! We all got soaked.
Sunday on our way home it rained again. These were the clouds we saw for at least an hour before we saw any rain.
And then the rain came! Thank goodness.
It rained yesterday and today too, really good rain not just sprinkles or off and on but all day yesterday, overnight and then it hasn't stopped yet. I hope this is the end of the draught and dryness we have been experiencing all summer.
I have lots more pictures to share from our trip so stay tuned!
