Exploring St. Louis has been really fun! I am loving all the little, quaint neighborhoods and old areas of the city. There are so many ethnic neighborhoods and can't wait to explore them all...I am excited about the food in each one too! The big city seems to be filled with all these small "cities" and the people who live in these smaller areas are very proud of them and all feel they are "the" place to live. I am loving our area as well but have really enjoyed seeing all these great parts of the whole.
This weekend however, we headed out to the country. It was a state park called Johnson's Shut-ins (a shut-in being a part of a river where it seems to shut down by rock or other obstruction). This Shut-in was caused by erosion and massive boulders. Totally cool, totally dangerous...kiddos loved it!
I loved this part of the river...just a nice lazy river!
I know, believe me when I say the picture makes it seem much worse. HOLD ON!!!
This is when I got a bit more nervous...
Happy Birthday C!
