It was all smiles until the tram actually started moving up. Then there were a lot of seriously concerned faces. (Oh, and Thing 2 refused to look out of the windows at the top. Or let anyone pick him up. Or walk. That was fun.) (P.S. As soon as we got back to the bottom, he wanted to go right back up. ?!?!?!)
Then we ventured down to the riverbank and dipped our toes in the mighty Mississippi. A first for all of us, even me, and I lived in St. Louis for a few years when I was a kid.
Thanks to Stubhub.com for the amazing $7 tickets! I about died when the box office said all they had left were $50 tickets. Uh, no way!! Not with two 5 year olds that may or may not sit through a whole game!
On stubhub I was able to buy 4 tickets plus tax and fees for $38! And they stand by the authenticity of their tickets. I will be using them again. (No, stubhub did not pay me to say that. But they should! ;)
This was the view from our seats! Gorgeous, right?
