St. Louis: Friday, as told by erin.

So, St. Louis was a blast. I think Carma has more pictures than I do, or at least has ones that fill in the gaps of what I do not have.

After some creative navigating on our part, we first headed for the St. Louis Galleria, to take care of a few things on our to do list, and kill time before check-in at the hotel.

I was pleasantly surprised to find a L'Occitane. I encourage you to check out their story, being a parent of a low-visioned child.

I cannot say enough about our hotel, the Moonrise. I loved it. The rooms, the staff, the location, the rooftop bar, all of it was wonderful.Even Bert, our trip mascot liked it.

We were late to the game, but really when Carma and I are together, we are rarely on time for anything. It was a great game, tied up in the 9th, and won when Matt Holliday hit a home-run, and the stadium erupted.

Then, there was the adventure of how to get back to our room. We had taken the Metro-link to the stadium, and failed to realize the crush of humanity we'd meet after the game.

The picture does not even come close to truly representing how many people were waiting to board the Metro link. After a bit more creative navigating, we found a far less crowded station and headed for our room.

Carma, have I left anything out?
