Day 12 – 2018 Vacation

This is what most of today consisted of…

We are now home and getting settled back into to home. This little guy was happy to see us.

This trip included 5 states, 5 hotels and almost 2500 miles of driving by me. It was fun, relaxing and recharging. It is good to be home.

Also, I cannot wait to get to go to another Indycar race.

Thanks for following along.

Day 11 – 2018 Vacation

Not too much to report for today. We spend about six and a half hours driving to Tulsa where we checked into our hotel. Then we went and did our fourth escape room and as always, we were successful!

After, we returned to the hotel where Vicky caught us messing around in the fitness room.

Tomorrow we will return home and officially conclude our trip.

Day 10 – 2018 Vacation

We started the day going to the St. Louis Zoo. Fortunately, the humidity was down so it was not miserable out.

And of course, Stephen with flamingos…

After a quick lunch, we decided to fulfill Michael’s month-long dream of going to Ikea.

And he wanted to try the meatballs..

Then we stopped by the Cathedral Basilica of Saint Louis. It was huge.

Went back to the hotel to take it easy a while before going to do Escape Room #3 where we escaped their most difficult room with only 1 minute remaining.

Tomorrow morning, we begin the journey home.

Day 9 – 2018 Vacation

We started the day going to the National Transportation Museum. Oh, it was hot.

After lunch, we went to the Civil War Museum.

There was a National Cemetery nearby. It was huge.

That is all for today. Going to the zoo in the morning and it is probably going to be hot and humid. Hopefully we will survive.

Day 8 – 2018 Vacation

Not too much today. Most of the day was spent driving from Iowa to St. Louis. We did pass two towns significant to MASH fans…

We got checked into our hotel. On the way to find some dinner, we happened upon an interestingly named school (and road)…

Then we went and got on the MetroRail…

We went downtown to visit the arch.

Us crammed into the little capsule to take us to the top…

At the top.

Waiting for our capsule down.

Now back at the hotel. I am pretty wiped. Have driven over 1500 miles now. Ready for bed!
