Road trip to St. Louis!

On November 1st I took off work along with my parents and we set off on a road trip to St. Louis!  I had signed up for a glass blowing class on Saturday and decided to make a fun weekend of it.

We took the scenic route as any good road trip must include- so after stopping for a BBQ lunch in Concordia, MO we zipped south and hopped on highway 50. The trip was gorgeous, but so hilly we all felt a little car sick. It was a long drive, but very fun- and a good opportunity for me to finish reading the beginning glass blowing book I had purchased, and to catch up on a little napping. 😉

We stopped at the Runge Conservation Nature Center in Jefferson City, MO for a 30 minute walk

We climbed the old fire watch tower- and could see Missouri's state capitol!

I wish I could have a camera attached to my retinas sometimes- there were so many things I would have taken a picture of – including someone’s yard that was so completely full of Halloween decorations I’m surprised they could get inside their house, beautiful drop-offs and views, and a gorgeous sunset as we made it to St. Louis.

Up next- a blog on our shenanigans in St. Louis on Sunday. After that is my glass blowing class on Saturday. I’m waiting on the cup I made to be shipped to me so I can take pictures of it before I post anything. 😉
