Lewis & Clark

On July 3rd we went up to St. Louis in hopes of catching the free Maroon 5 concert under the arch and fireworks. Unfortunately, just as we pulled into town a storm blew in and the concert was cancelled. WAHH. Brandon's parents had hooked us up with a hotel room at the Casino Queen so we decided to gamble the night away instead. Well, I gave the slots a chance and ended up liking them (because I was winning). Brandon played blackjack and won some money too. Not too shabby, but I think we really missed out on a good show.

The next day we were invited to Bethalto to visit Seth and Mary Jo. Since we had some time to kill, Brandon made us take a detour at the Lewis & Clark State Historic Site in Hartford, IL. The main draw here is the Lewis & Clark Confluence Tower but it was closed due to firework viewing later that night. So instead we headed over to the museum.
It was small but informative. I'm sure lots of school groups come through because it is very interactive.
Here's Brandon with one of the boats. Outside they had a little camp set up so you could see what it was like for Lewis and Clark... but it was still raining a bit so we skipped it. We were happy to strike this place off our list - you only need to come here once :)
