Since moving to Missouri we've grown to love the Loop. After visiting St. Louis this past autumn with my parents and then again this spring with Ray and Kerry (recaps here and here) we knew it was a favorite spot of ours. So when planning a meet up with Alex and Liz we were more than enthusiastic to meet in St. Louie where Alex's brother, David, lives. After arriving at our vacation rental and cooking up dinner off we went, again, to the City Museum.

|Mary and Liz say "Prost!"|
On Sunday we enjoyed lunch in the Grove neighborhood followed by drinks at Urban Chestnut Brewery a trip to the St. Louis zoo and a showing of Henry IV in Forest Park.

On Monday we strolled along the Mississippi waterfront, walked in the shadow of the Arch, ate some grub then went our separate ways.
