To the Place I Belong

1)The Jefferson National Expansion Memorial (The St. Louis Arch and The Old Court House). Having read Sacajawea, written by Joseph Bruchac, a wonderful children's author and storyteller of Native American literature such as Squanto and Children of the Longhouse, we were able to fill in the precious details that the National Geographic film left out. (An aside, I highly recommend any of his books). A read The Captain's Dog last year and enjoyed seeing the portrayal of Capt. Lewis' faithful Newfoundland.
2)Picking up beautiful Sweet Gum and Maple leaves for leaf rubbings.
3)Farotto's St. Louis style pizza-mmmmmmm.
4)Watching Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban with E and mother-in-law- simply enchanting ;).

Ah Missour-ah.
I've only been in The "Show me" state once. It was when I was driving out to Arizona to move away from home in PA. I had just driven through the "Blizzard of 1996" through Indiana, and I saw the St. Louis arch through the haze of the back end of the storm.

In my head, I was singing the old Glenn Miller tune: Route 66.

It goes through St. Louie, and Joplin Missouri, and Oklahoma City looks mighty pretty...

Jeremy, funny you should mention that portion of the song because I am associated somehow with each of those cities.

Love hearing Nat King Cole singing that one...
