I'm currently in Greece on my honeymoon! In the meantime, I have a series of travel posts scheduled until I return.
For Thanksgiving in 2012, Sam and I drove to St Louis so I could meet his family for the first time!! Eekk! I was super nervous, but his family was super sweet and welcoming and immediately put me at ease!
Since this was my first time in St Louis, Sam wanted us to do some touristy things together. First we went to the Arch with his parents. His mom isn't keem on heights, so Sam and I went up into The Arch while his parents stayed on the ground.
We got is this teeny, tiny egg shaped elevator compartment to ride to the top of the Arch.
The comparment was Rebecca sized, so I was pretty comfortable. Sam on the other hand had to squeeze in!
I took pictures from every single window up there!
This is Sam's favorite picture (because the stadium is in it, and he's a boy), and it's currently hanging on the wall in our living room.
Back on the ground!
Next up we headed to the St Louis Art Museum in Forest Park. There's a little hill right here in front of the Art Museum and Sam told me this is a very popular spot for sledding.
After the Art Museum, we went to the City Museum, which was absolutely my favorite thing we did!
The City Museum is part playground, part architectural salvage museum. All of the playground equipment is made out of repurposed and salvaged materials.
I most enjoyed the architectural salvage area on the top part of the museum.
Pretty much everything in the museum can be touched!

We're sitting in old theater chairs here.
This museum was so much fun, and I would love to go back!
