John and I stole away on Fridav evening for a mini vacation in St. Louis. In addition to all of our requisite see-the-family meals, we had tickets for TWO of the Cards-Cubs games and decided to stay downtown, within walking distance to the Stadium. We had dinner at Joe Bucks and breakfast at Rooster (gluten free crepes!). We sat in 98 degree heat and watched 12 innings on Saturday (Pujols hit a home run for the win!), and then on Sunday, we joined my mom and her new boyfriend for suite tickets and enjoyed the game in air conditioned luxury (10 innings, and another winning home run from Albert). Our suite attendant was even kind enough to go track down a six-pack of gluten-free beer for me, so that I could indulge like everyone else. Oh, and I got a haircut. Hello summer, I do love you.
