Aaron and I are almost one week into the first portion of our trip! We should probably have more of a plan, but that's really just not how we do things... I have absolutely no idea where we are going next, and all I can tell you is that it better be warm.
We started out in Indiana for a couple of days, but I'm not really counting that, because, it was horrible, and also because it was a required stop for Aaron's new job. Therefore, our first stop will always be known as St. Louis, Missouri.
I really don't know much at all about St. Louis, and I obviously knew even less before we visited. All I wanted to see was the Gateway Arch and that is exactly where we started. Aaron always spoils me and does exactly what I want to do. Probably because he is afraid I'll start sobbing in public about missing his dad. It could be love, but its probably fear.
So, we ended up parking the Airstream in the Downtown St. Louis RV Park, which was essentially a parking lot with hook-ups. That is totally not a complaint. It was perfect, there was very little nature at all, except for my super cute potted plant.
We spent two nights in Missouri so there wasn't a lot of time to explore, but besides the arch, we also made time to go on the Anheuser-Busch Brewery Tour. The Clydesdale horses were the absolute best part, but maybe that's because I'm not into beer?
The visit was short, but I had a really fun time. Could have been the beautiful weather, could have been that I finally stopped crying about leaving home, could be a mixture of things. But, I also learned a fun fact about Missouri during our visit.
Did you know that Missouri is known as the "show me state?"
According to Aaron I am the only one in America that did not know this piece of information. But hey, I know it now!
