We took a day and drove up to Brainard Lake, a beautiful lake surrounded by moutains. We brought a picnic along and while Joe did some fly fishing, the kids and I strolled around the lake and did some exploring.
On the way home we stopped again in St Louis and visited the arch again, this time we were able to go up. It took a loong time to be able to go up, lots of waiting, but Judah absolutely loved it. He had been so disappointed that we didn't get to go up on the way out to Colorado, so it was worth all the wait for him. =o)
Then before we knew it our excursion out west was over, we're left with tons of happy memories. I'm hoping the kids will remember a few of those too. =o)
