It's sad to leave our buds in Indianapolis, but we had to start making our way West. We left Noblesville around 9am after making a quick trip to the grocery store [side note, I have started a great collection of grocery discount cards, today I got one at Kroegers :-) ]. The weather was calling for some strong storms just north of our route so we were fortunate they weren't going to get in our way.

Leaving our hotel we headed back into St Louis to visit the Gateway Arch - it's gorgeous and the ride to the top was fun, in our funny little pod. At the top, on one side you're looking across the Mississippi at Illinois, and on the other, St Louis and Missouri. While waiting for our trip we checked out the Museum of Westward Expansion, the Museum Shop and the Souvenir shop.
