Last Trip Post, I Promise

This is the other thing we climbed.

Luther Tower

We visited our friend JJ at the Seminary in STL. He’s a tour guide for the campus as well as a student of Greek. It was great to see JJ again. All the kids love JJ & while the boys showed off by acting like recently sprung prisoners, Tova just repeated his name over & over & kept wanting JJ to carry her. She knows how to get to a man’s heart. And impress his new girlfriend.

We attended church with our friends Jill & Mike on Sunday as well. It’s a huge church. They have 3 different service styles, a huge school, & the kids favorite, a slide. In the building.

The service we attended was wonderful. Upbeat, familiar music, a meaningful message, & the setting was like nothing I’ve ever experienced. The service is held in a room called the Warehouse. Very minimal decor, a small worship band (3 guitars, singer, & drummer), a small altar, & the chairs were arranged in rows & in the back were round tables for families with small kids. That was wonderful. The kids could color without dropping hymnals, we had plenty of space for all our stuff & it just made the atmosphere feel small & intimate. I don’t think I can convince J~ to work for his company’s rival (based in STL) so we can join at St John’s. I’d love to though.

After church we had our best STL dining experience at a Red Robin. We’ve never eaten at one before & we’ll definitely be repeat customers. It was loud but that just meant T~ blended. The food was good, & the server made a point of talking to all the kids (there were 5 of them), it was a great place.

I think that about wraps up our trip. Thanks for reading!

    Oh, we love Red Robin. I never have to worry how loud or out of control E is! Their “freckled” lemonade is the best!

    I’m so glad you find STJ as inspirational as we do. I so wish you would move to STL. I would love it! See what you can do to work on J~ 😉
