DAY 3 - Cam and Nick are making good time. After stopping briefly for lunch in St Louis, they are now on their way through Illinois headed to Nashville. Gma loved Nashville and used to dance a little jig every time she spoke of it.
SUNDAY 2/27 - Left Colombia, MO / End destination Nashville, TN. After another delightful hotel continental breakfast we left Colombia, MO by 10:00 am and headed for Saint Lewis, MO. We wanted to stop there for lunch and to see the Gateway Arch. It was only a quick two hours from Colombia so we got there at about noon. We parked the van, packed a lunch, unloaded the kids bikes, and walked/biked to the park. It was a lovely day, sunny and 45 degrees. The arch is impressive and the park area was so fun. Easy for Ozzy and Fitz to ride bikes and there were lots of stairs and benches and features for them to run around and climb on. We had lunch on a bench between the Gateway Arch and the Mississippi River. We ended up staying a lot longer than expected. Drove away from Saint Lewis, MO at about 2:30 pm. Crossed the Mississippi and entered Illinois.
