st louis and chicago family trip!

At the end of April  I was lucky to take a trip to St Louis to photograph a fabulous wedding (pics of the wedding coming soon!) and I brought Mike and Zoey along for the ride. We hung out in St Louis for a few days and did all of the fun touristy stuff (The Arch of course, and the City Museum which is completely amazing)…and then after the wedding we took a train (fun!) to Chicago and spent the weekend there. Mike and I have ALWAYS wanted to visit Chicago and we loved it. Can’t wait to go back. It was actually a really blustery chilly weekend so hopefully next time we will visit in the summer. Here are a few photos of our travels!

The requisite photos of the St Louis Arch. Designed by famous mid century architect Eero Saarinen

My cute little Zoey playing on the grounds of the arch. She looks so tiny!

The one and only pic of Mike and I


When we got to Chicago we took an evening architure tour on the river. Mike and I both love architecture so it was very interesting to us. Though it was SUPER cold, especially coming from mild Austin weather.

Those cups of hot chocolate in our hands may be spiked with booze. It was what we needed to deal with an unruly almost 2 year old who was about sick of traveling!

A dusk shot of Chicago from the river tour. So pretty.

And our trip wouldn’t be complete without a trip to the Hancock Observatory!
