Day 32 and 33: Another Day in St Louis and the drive back to Texas with stops in Springfield and Tulsa

St. Louis Art Museum

 

 

Lunch at Amighetti's on "The Hill"

 

 

This "Hill"is where Yogi Berra grew up.

 

 

 

Views from our hotel room.


The stage is for Fair St. Louis which is a four-day celebration from July 4 through July 7. The big fireworks display is tonight.

 

 

 

 

On our way to the ball park, Jeannie made friends with the fireman in charge of the flag display.

 

The flag is above them.

Old Glory

 
 
 
Honoring Dred and Harriet Scott
 

 

 

Cardinals named to the All Star game, which is in Kansas City on Tuesday, are introduced before the game.

 

 

It is Championship Replica World Series Ring Night in St. Louis. We are going to give these to David in Springfield on Saturday. These rings are way way better than I thought beforehand.

 

 

 

First Pitch, Florida Marlins visit Busch Stadium for 3 games against the Cards before the All Star break next week.

 

 

Cardinals are losing 2 to 1 at the 7th inning stretch.

 

Jeannie is in the air conditioned Redbird Club snoozing

Fireworks awaken Jeannie

 

 

Down 3 to 1, Cardinals try to rally in the 9th, scoring one and getting runners on 1st and 2nd, when Matt Holliday (batting below) gets hit by a pitch.

 

Cards have runners on 1st and 2nd with two outs. However, Cardinals superstar Carlos Beltran (below) grounds out, and the Marlins win 3 to 2.

 

Marlins celebrate

 

 

Jeannie and I head to J Bucks, a restaurant close to Busch Stadium for some desert?

 

 

 

On Saturday, we drove from St. Louis to Dallas, but we stopped in Springfield to give David the replica rings.

 

And

We stopped in Tulsa to have pizza with our friends Scott and Shawn who travelled with us last year for a game in St Louis and one in Kansas City.

 

Back in the great state of Texas

 

On Sunday we will see the Rangers host the Minnesota Twins in Arlington.
