"Uh," was their first response. "Do you really want to drive all that way for a 15 minute interview?"
Why yes, yes I did.
Not only would this provide me a media clip, but it also meant that I could go to St. Louis and indulge my love of barbecue and giant arches.
Also, the kids thought it was the bees' knees.
I'll post my clip (provided I don't discover that I had spinach in my teeth) once I get it from the nice folks at The Chad Slagle Show (both of whom are named Chad).
Until then, here are some pictures of our adventures:
At the St. Louis Zoo:
At the City Museum:
|I'm not sure about this.|
|Seriously, Mom, this is sketchy.|
At the Arch:
|My favorite thing about this is the fact that they took our photo in front of a bare concrete wall. Of course, then I bought the concrete wall photo for 22 bucks, because I am a finance expert.|
At a random local playground near our AirBnB rental:
|That's LO's yo-yo by the way, which he insisted on bringing with us. Anytime I offered to roll up the string and put it in his pocket, he looked at me as if I were crazy.|
A good time was had by all.
