A few days before the kid's spring break was to start, Mike & I discussed our plans for the upcoming week. A big vacation wasn't in our plans, but we were craving a change of pace. Fast forward an hour; we had a destination, hotel reservations, an idea of what we could do when we got there. We decided to go south, as the idea of warmer temperatures was incredibly appealing; we also knew it had to be in a comfortable driving distance since Jack has proven to be the world's worst traveler.
Six hours south, a reasonable, decent hotel and a host of family friendly activities. St. Louis bound we became!
The weather was perfect (mid-70's and sunny), the kids were for the most part near-perfect, the car ride was manageable, and heck all 6 of us spent three nights in one hotel room we actually all got some sleep. Amazing.
