Last weekend, my dad came to visit. While the Cardinals are always the major draw this time of year, we did manage to squeeze in a couple of other St. Louis things, like dinner at Charlie Gitto’s On the Hill (the Italian neighborhood in St. Louis) and the summer exhibit at the Missouri Botanical Gardens – Garden of Glass: The Art of Craig Mitchell Smith. The exhibit was pretty incredible. Sculptures made of glass and/or metal were on display throughout the Climatron. In many cases, they nearly blended in with the surroundings!
We went to the Cardinals game with my aunt. Sadly, it was both colder and wetter than we hoped. Thankfully, they were giving away jerseys, so we could add an extra layer! We also had to depend on some Emergency Ponchos to make it to our car without getting completely soaked.
