... no cross country road trip would be complete without seeing the "Gateway to the West"! On our way, we saw signs for the worlds largest golf tee and also the worlds largest wind chime...although we were tempted to stop and see these most intriguing attractions, we had a long drive ahead of us, so we stayed on the highway. Another interesting thing that happened is that we crossed over our first time zone...not sure exactly where, but it was somewhere in SE Illinois....wish ...

Today was a laid back day. Stayed close to the park to keep out of the heat. We went out for dessert with Rich's cousin, John, to a St.
Louis landmark called Ted Drewes. It is a frozen custard place and very
popular. It was good to see his cousin again and get a ride in his
Cadillac CTS-V. Rich was in hog heaven. Also, thank you John for the
fresh baked bread.
