There is a series of locks and dams along the upper part of the Mississippi to keep it navigatable. It's run by the Army Corp of Engineers. Last weekend grandson Tyler and I went down to the lock and dam near Winfield and were lucky enough to see them moving these barges through the lock.

My grandsons and I decided to hike up to Frenchman's Bluff in Cuivre River State Park. Tyler is doing a little exploring off the trail here.
We haven't even gotten up to the bluff yet and I've already worn them out. Nothing a shot or two of Mountain Dew couldn't cure. (Their mom was NOT happy with me about the Mountain Dew)

If you keep coming back to this blog your going to see lots of pictures of the St. Louis Zoo. It is absolutely my favorite place to go. This leopard was having a bath while we were there.
About a month ago after the leaves changed color but before they all fell, my grandson Tim and I took a walk at Cuivre River State Park. It's only 50 miles north west of St Louis and just happens to be right next to Troy, which is where I live.
Tim makes it look so easy, I didn't get over that log anywhere near that easily or gracefully.
Rasoi is a wonderful restaurant with good food! A friend and I went for the lunch buffet and had a really nice meal. I couldn't tell you the names of anything we had but everything was good (and spicy)! Good friends, good conversation and a good meal, who could ask for anything more?
