St Louis Vaca, continued...
The last couple of days have been filled with shopping, eating and museum hopping. I am not much of a shopper for myself but I did enjoy the craft show at Soulard Market on Saturday. Ashley and I ran into a crafter who makes bouquets from wool felt and buttons. Ashley made a darling white bouquet with a touch of orange for her milk glass vase collection. I can't wait to see it when she puts it out at her home.
We toured the Vatican collection at the Missouri History Museum. This is the farthest West it is going and so lots of people were there from all over the world. Ihad fun shopping there as well, buying a nativity scene (from Bethlehem) and buying Ash a cross in her favorite shade of blue for her Christmas tree.
We went to see Damn Yankees at the Muny (an outdoor theater) and it was damn hot. Bob bought these fans that sprayed water and without them we wouldn't have made it. The play was wonderful though. If you have seen it you know that there is a scene where kids are gathered around a radio listening to the Generals and Yankees at the Pennant game. Mike Shannon, the voice of the Cardinals, was the announcer. That was fun!
Today our highlight is going to see the Cardinals play. Rain is in the forecast for today so I hope we get the game in!
