|Maybe I should have rubbed him for good luck.|
We were camped at a great state park (Dr. Edmund A. Babler Memorial State Park) that was conveniently located near my parents house. The park was alive with vibrant fall colors. Once the weekend was over, the campground cleared out and it was like we had a private campground. Hiking and biking trails were scattered throughout the 868-acres urban park which offered great opportunities to stretch our legs in the cool mornings and afternoons. Spirit came alive chasing squirrels and deer over the crunching leaves. We absolutely love finding parks like this that offer such peace and quiet - especially in a major metropolitan area.

some kid crawled below me in a hurry to his
next daredevil act.
|Mom told me these underwear were actually stolen as a prank. Yuck!|
|This little girl told me climbing through that suspended wire tube was the scariest thing she had ever done in her life.|
|My dad doesn't seem to have the fear of heights that I do. He was excited to jump into the shell of a plane precariously suspended four stories over the street.|
The week in St. Louis was over before we knew it, we said our goodbyes, and set a course for Florida. Hopefully, we will be back in town before too long or my family will come find us down south.
|A little sad after the Cardinals loss but my parents, brother and his family managed to smile for a picture.|
|For almost 91, my grandma still has spunk.|
