Back in St. Louis

Finally made it to St. Louis via Camendton and Jonesburg Missouri. Left right after church on Sunday and drove to BillyV's in-laws on the lake. Got to take a trip out on the boat. July 4th week is one of the lake's busiest weeks. It was pretty calm late in the evening. It is really eye opening to see all the resorts and lake houses along with boats that start in the low $20K's. We saw a few on the strip for up to $200,000. I'm sure there are some that cost more than that.

We visited the wife's family last night and today. Got to visit the small town 4th of July special. Free carriage ride and bounce house. We did have fried fish sandwiches along with home made ice cream. The fireworks display was delayed about 30 minutes due to inclement weather. My kids could care less about the fireworks so I'm not sure that we will go anywhere tonight. If we do, it will be without the kids.

I'll be here in St. Louis taking it easy so if you want to get together just leave a comment. We'll be staying at my mom's place here in Arnold, Missouri, fast food capital of the world.
