We stopped in St. Louis to check out the Gateway Arch. We wanted to go up to the top but it was like a three-hour wait. They had a Lewis and Clark museum and other sites to scope. Our last stop before coming home was in Kansas City, MO. We asked around to find the best/most famous BBQ in town and a couple of people lead to us to Jack Stack's. It was pretty good, though the sauce was little on the sweet side. Grace got beef Burnt Ends and pork ribs and Lance got huge beef ribs. Well worth the stop even if it took a few minutes of searching.
We just got back from Chicago. It was real fun but super cold. Here is a sampling of pics.
They had this huge kidney bean-like structure in the middle of a park. The next pic is at night from Navy Pier. We were the only ones out there and Grace was pretty scared, but it was worth it for the picture.
The Art Institute is killer. It rivals some of the best museums in Europe.
The last pic is from outside the Field Museum. While we were there the weather was really nice. This is a good shot of the skyline and Sears Tower.
