So, last night, I was preparing for our schedule to change today, because St. Louis was expecting snow/rain mix all day! Well, guess what, it got up to 40 degrees and we enjoyed some needed sunshine. I truly believe it’s because the campers were visiting!
Our sunny day started off at the St. Louis Science Center. What a fun place to visit! There are a lot of very interesting hands on exhibits and every one of the campers loved the activities!
Here is Brett Williams testing out some magnets and Andrew Loggins looking on.
Before we knew it; it was time to head to the Gateway Arch!
They got to touch the Arch as well! There is a lot of construction going on around the Arch, so we couldn’t see the museum or go up on one side of the arch, so we shopped and made sure we took a lot of pictures. After our visit we made our way to Union Station to have dinner at Laundry’s. It was a very nice restaurant with some delicious sea food!
Then it was off to watch the Saint Louis Billikens woman’s basketball team play George Mason at Chaifetz Arena.
It was a great game! The woman played very well and beat George Mason 82-59 and it was in front of a record crowd! Campers love to be at games where history is in the making, and if there is plenty of good music so they can dance! Way to go Billikins!
It was a great day! The campers had such a great time! Tomorrow we visit the zoo and head back to camp. Have a great night.
The travel group made it back to Iowa! The campers were all picked up at the Wendy’s in Coralville! It was a great weekend! We spent this morning at the St. Louis Zoo. It was a little windy, but we saw a few animals, like the seals, who really love swimming in this cold weather!
Before we knew it, it was time to shop and have lunch! The zoo has this very nice cafe that serves delicious food. So if you are ever out that way, please stop in and grab a bite.
A few pictures were taken this morning, so here are some of our campers having a great time at the St. Louis Zoo.
As I mentioned it was a great weekend, with a lot of great people on the trip! A HUGE thank you goes out to Marilyn Gray and Paula Simon for doing a superb job! Also, to camper Brett Williams for flying all the way from Texas to join us on the trip, for all the campers who attend the trip (These trips are made for YOU!), and for Ida Niemann for jumping in and helping out with the groups! She was a natural!
I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! Have a great week and until the next trip, have a great end of February!
