Whenever someone asks us, “how is St. Louis?” it’s honestly hard to answer. With our summer travel schedule, the most I’ve seen of the city is whatever is out my window on the drive to work…and believe me, it’s not pretty. So when we knew we were going to be in town last weekend, we wanted to make the most of it. We (okay, I) decided we should steal Brittany and Jimmy’s surprise date idea. You might have read about their adventures here and here. My narration is nowhere near as exciting as Britt’s, but here’s how my surprise date for Chris went down this weekend!
Surprise = National Geographic’s “Real Pirates” Exhibit at the STL Science Center. Nerd alert!
He is in the middle of saying “it says no cameras”. No cameras? Don’t they know people have blogs??
After the exhibit we made our way to “The Hill” for dinner. This is St. Louis’ Italian neighborhood and it’s packed full of amazing restaurants and delis…and of course, Italians.
I love these little houses. We even saw a tiny old Italian lady sitting out on her porch–bonus! 😉
Italian beer for an Italian boy…
Chris got the giggles when he took my picture because he said I was framed by the little old couple in the background. They look like they’re having so much fun…see what you have to look forward to Chris?!?
For some reason a view of the arch never gets old. Even when you’re sitting in traffic…on a Saturday.
Thanks to Brittany for the great idea! I’m excited to see what Chris has in store for August. Yes Chris, your turn 🙂
