We’d only stopped 3 times so we went ahead and stopped in St. Louis. We were thinking about taking the tram up the arch but decided that would take too long and would be better to do when we have more time available.
Instead we checked out the old courthouse and Jefferson National Expansion Memorial. It was pretty cool.
There wasn’t an admission fee, and the ranger told us about the junior ranger program. Joanna was really excited to work through some of the activities and earn her junior ranger badge.
In addition to checking out the neat paintings and architecture we also watched part of a movie about the Dredd Scott trial. That was a sobering moment in the journey.
We all learned a bit working through the activities. There was even a pledge for her when she earned her badge. So cool!
I love our family trips and taking time to enjoy the traveling journey together!
