We checked in the conference hotel, which was right next to the Gateway Arch. I hurried off to spend the rest of the day in sessions, with Christine and the girls exploring.
Their first stop was the Saint Louis Science Center.
|It isn't too hard to see the similarities between Michaela and Danielle. Click here to be surprised at how one of them looks!|
|Their facial expressions reveal common emotions.|
Late that afternoon I skipped the association's business meeting (Which was acceptable as a non-board member) and joined the three girls to visit the Gateway Arch.
|Unfortunately we failed to get an entire family photo. This photo has us a bit closer, but is not as fun.|
The ride to the top was fairly quick, not very expensive, and a wonderful memory even if it was crowded.
|The view from the small windows had my body doing very abnormal things, but seemingly had no effect on Danielle.|
On our walk back to the hotel Michaela and Danielle gazed at the horse drawn carriages. They didn't get a ride as we had somewhere else to go that night, but they did get their picture taken. Danielle even received a little kiss and nudge as well.
I'm thankful Christine took photos, as I was unable to share these memories with them. Luckily, my conference ended late morning of the third day and we had most of the last day together.
