Note: I usually only post the "family" stuff on our private blog but since there aren't any kids (which is why I went private with that blog) in these pics, I will share our travel adventures...
The title is a play on words.
My eyes are not really sore.
But they are failing me.
first noticed it about the time I turned 40. Now, as I approach 42
(that would be tomorrow), I find myself squinting and holding things
further away. Probably time to put on those reading glasses I have had
sitting on my nightstand for a while.
That being said, we saw some sights today.
made it to St. Louis (or right outside) late last night. Originally,
Mark had this as part of our trip. But then when we looked at our time,
we wanted a little more time at Niagara, so we were just going to
by-pass this. However, since my mom offered to keep the kids last
night, we were able to get a head start and had just enough time to make
a little visit to "The Gateway to the West". I booked a ride to the
top for this morning. We were kind of regretting it when that alarm went
off too early BUT I will say, we learned that first thing in the
morning is the BEST time to go. There was NO waiting. We actually got to
go up early which was a nice treat. And it wasn't really crowded at
See that person in the bottom left part of the arch? That is Mark. Gives a little perspective, doesn't it? :)
I had to take a little shot of the baseball stadium for my son...
What didn't surprise me was that we had
fun. Lots of fun. It was nice having a laid back schedule, exploring a
little, talking a lot, and just enjoying time together. (And enjoying a
phone call with the kids...)
Anyway, we are stopped for the night in Ohio, heading on to Niagara tomorrow.
And the adventure continues...
