During the RNR St. Louis Half Marathon weekend, we decided to see how much we could squeeze in before and after the race.
1. Busch Stadium Tour followed by the Cardinals Museum
Pam is a huge Cardinals fan. I knew she wanted to tour the stadium, and I knew it would make S jealous if we did!
|Where the tour started. Inside the stadium.|
|There were two rules before we went onto the field. 1. Stay off the grass and 2. Stay off the grass!|

The $10 Day Fresh Brewery Tour was sold out. After touring the baseball stadium, we zoomed over to Budweiser, hoping to go on one of the free first come first served tours right away. We were given tickets for the 7pm tour. We came back at 6pm and snuck into that tour.

3. City Museum
To kill time while waiting for our late Budweiser tour, we went to the City Museum. For $12 we purchased passes that didn't include the roof. Roof Access is $5 more.
I wish my kids were able to visit. This museum is nothing like anything I've ever seen.

|Jungle gym extraordinaire.|
On Sunday, after the race, we visited the Gateway Arch. We pre purchased tickets ($10) on Friday night. We couldn't go on Saturday, as all the tour times were completely sold by Friday evening. Half of the arch was closed, due to men working on the outside of it.
|Not a job I would want.|
|Hello St. Louis!|
