We left St. Louis this am and arrived in Indianapolis around 4pm. We had just enough time to take a bus ride around the track while listening to a recorded talk about the beginnings of the speedway, then return to the museum to look around. I went right to the gift shop and found a few goodies while the boys took pictures in an Indy car. Now it's time to relax. Tomorrow we will be heading out to Sandusky, OH for the rollercoaster rides of our lifetime.

Karl's first White Castle...an experience!
KJ had his first taco from Jack-In-The-Box way back in Texas and couldn't wait for another visit...
Today was a fun day. We walked a block from our hotel to the Arch. Took the car to the top, looked around, took pics, came back down, walked around the gift shop and museum and walked to the riverboat for a ride on the Mississippi. A great day for family fun!

We made it to Kansas City in time to see a major league baseball game. With the Royals and Rangers not in much contention for a World series spot, there were plenty of seats. 10,000 fans watched with us as they lost to the Rangers. All in all, it was a good game and we enjoyed the kids hitting the beach balls in the stands as much as the game, itself. Great stadium and wonderful people in KC, MO!
Onto the next destination....Meet Me In St. Louis, Louis...meet me at the fair...

Another day, Another Monument
Today was spent at Mt. Rushmore. We went to the monument after lunch and spent an hour looking around at the grounds and information areas. The drive to the site was nothing short of spectacular. I can't believe all the great views we have seen this trip!
Tonight, we ate at a chuckwagon supper club. They served us through a line then we went to our seats and listened to a country music show. The girl playing the fiddle was awesome! The place we were at was adjacent to the property where Dances With Wolves was filmed. It is called Ft. Hays. I enjoyed everything.
Tomorrow, it is an 8 hour drive to Sioux City, IA to see the memorial of the plane crash of United Flight 232 on July 19, 1989. A miracle.
