Last weekend Dan and I met up with my parents in St Louis. Mom and Dad booked us a great little apartment for the weekend in a really nice neighborhood. On Saturday morning, bright and early, we went to the Arch. We were in the first elevator to the top and were rewarded with wonderful views of the city of St Louis to the West:

On Sunday Dan wasn't feeling so well so he stayed home and rested while I went off with my parents to the Missouri Botanical Gardens.
