St. Louis

This was a pretty fun week. Isaac has been jumping around a lot when we hold him, so I found him a jumper. He is still a bit small for it and he hasn't quite got the jumping thing down yet, but he is getting better. The jumper hangs in the pantry doorway because it is the only one low enough in the house. I think Isaac likes it though. The pantry is full of cool stuff to look at!

On Friday, we went to St. Louis for Bryce's 10 year high school reunion. The fun started on Friday night at the homecoming game. It was so crowded. I have never seen so many people at a HS football game. Isaac was a little freaked out by all the cheering, so we didn't stay long. We took him to some friends from Bryce's old ward to play while we met up with Bryce's classmates at a bar called the Fox and Hound. We had a great time hanging out and catching up.

On Saturday, we went to the top of Gateway Arch. I have never been to St. Louis, so this was a fun way to see it. The Arch is not a place to spend a ton of time. It is a super way to combine my claustrophobia and fear of heights. Just kidding, its not that bad... There is a museum there that I wanted to check out, but they don't allow strollers and Isaac was getting sick of being carried, so we left and hung out at the park outside the Arch for a bit. Isaac felt much better with a clean diaper and some playtime. We spent the rest of the day driving around seeing some places Bryce wanted to visit again and doing a little wandering around the mall. That night, Isaac went to the babysitters again while we went to another bar for more reunion fun. This one was called Bar Louie and was in Downtown St. Louis. There was a $50 cover charge meant to include all you could drink..... so Bryce and I enjoyed our $50 cokes! Pretty expensive, but worth it to spend some more time with Bryce's old friends. I hope we can see them again soon, instead of waiting another 10 years.

The weather was so great. It was 80 and sunny with no humidity.
