St Louis or Bust

Our family drove out to St Louis on Saturday to see Phantom of the Opera at the Fox Theatre. This was a surprise to Savannah and Haylie. Mike and I have seen the play several times but this was a first for the girls. Unfortunately they both fell asleep during the second half. Because we had time to kill we decided to see the 3D Toy Story movies. I thought the movie theatre would be packed but there was only about 20 people. Savannah was a little disappointed that it was "real 3D" where things look like they're coming out at you like the stuff at Disneyland. Had a good lunch at O'Charleys and then dinner at Spaghetti Factory of course. Wanted to have breakfast at IHOP Sunday morning but it and Cracker Barrel were packed so we got a substandard breakfast at McDonalds. However, I do have to say maybe we were flying like the Jetsons. We made it both ways in 3 hours and 10 minutes. Our best time ever for 264 miles.

Oh I didn't realize you went to St. Louis for Phantom. For some reason I thought it was in KC. What did the girls think of it? (at least the part they were awake through ;)
