St. Charles and St. Louis

After leaving Ohio we drove through Indiana, Illinois, and into Missouri, or “MO” as we like to call it.  Say it out loud…you know you want to!  MO!!  We actually stayed in St. Charles which is about 30 minutes northwest of downtown St. Louis and right along the MO River.  We went into St. Louis for a day to check out the Arch and a couple of museums among other things.  Here is a recap of our visit.

…the Arch…
