After 5 hours of driving, we made it to St. Louis. In the process, we went through Tennessee, Kentucky, Illinois and Missouri. The weather was perfect – – sunny and dry.

Once again, the Bun was good on the drive and started to lose it right when we arrived. Thank goodness that she perks up immediately upon getting out of that car seat!

Our hotel in St. Louis is the Hyatt Regency at Union Station. It used to be a train station in the late 1800’s. The architecture is very cool, so we had to do a bit of exploring this afternoon. Ella liked the scenery, especially the outdoor garden area. I couldn’t help but tell her secrets.

Tomorrow is a 4 hour drive to Kansas City, Missouri. We hope to arrive earlier so we can relax before the LONG drive across Kansas and Colorado on Saturday.

Thank you Lord for keeping us safe on our drive. We pray for protection on the remainder of our trip home. We praise you and thank you for our miracle baby girl. Each day we look at her is a reminder of your love in our lives. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Once again I must say that we love you and your little family. We know that Ella is a miracle and we know that Father sent her to you for very specific reasons. Thank you for the glimpse into your very complicated life. Was that a pool that I saw. If it was it is awsome. LOL Aunt Char and Jim

Ella has become a “seasoned” traveler at a very early age.
I love old train stations (my grandpa took us to the local station in Pocatello Idaho every summer), and small towns where it seems that everything has been frozen in time…what a wonderful experience for your family on your journey home!Ella you are a trouper!!!

God Bless
