St. Louis Weekend-The Finale! Favorite Photo Friday

Yum
I took this photo during the marathon. It is my Favorite Photo Friday entry. I love how it tells what the weather was doing that Sunday!



After our divine meal at Niche, we headed out to a piano bar. It was crowded with bachlorette parties and so after awhile, we headed back to the hotel. It was slightly raining and the cobblestones were slick.

The next morning we woke to a steady pouring of rain, which was unfortunate, as we were to watch several of Bob's teachers run in the St. Louis Marathon. Four of his staff ran the half marathon and one ran the full marathon. The marathon runner ran in under four hours, thus qualifying him for the Boston Marathon next year!



We saw all four of his staff cross the finish line of the half marathon. Thirteen miles! All in a steady downpour of rain. What dedication!

We left then and went to a St. Louis favorite, Blueberry Hill, for lunch. We had great burgers and the place is decorated with all kinds of memorabilia from the 50s and 60s. A Missouri Star Walk is right outside the restaurant.





After a quick trip to Whole Foods and Trader Joe's, we called it a weekend and headed home! What a great time for the two of us!
