Road Trippin' Day 5 - Play Ball!!!

The boys finally got to play some ball last night!!  Woot woot! They also won both of their games! Double woot woot! It was a chilly night but we braved the weather to watch our boys play their first games of the trip.  It was a sunny day yesterday and since the boys didn't have a practice until 2:00 we were able to go see the Gateway Arch!  We unfortunately didn't have time to take the tram up to the top as it was only10:30 yet the next available tickets or a tram was 12:30.  We needed to be back to have lunch before the boys left for practice.

It looks like we will be able to see some sights in the mornings then make it to practices and games in the afternoon and evenings.  Not too bad at all!

We started with a nice sunny walk along the mighty Mississippi.

We stopped at the Gateway Arch for a few photos.  We went inside, but as I said it was too long of a wait for the time we had but we looked around the shops for a while.

We went back to the hotel for a spaghetti & salad lunch.

The boys got in some batting practice at Balls & Strikes indoor facility. This was quite the neat place!
The team then stopped at a Denny's to eat before the game...I had breakfast for dinner!

Then the boys played ball!!

We didn't make it back to the hotel until 10:30 so I took the pastrami sandwiches I had originally made for dinner at the park and grilled them! Grilled pastrami and cheese sammies and fruit hit the spot! I was too cold and tired for food pictures but the boys raved about them.  After a good night's sleep we are all ready to do it all again today, as long as the weather holds up!

Until next time, stay warm and eat well!
