We headed east again to Kansas City where we stopped for some authentic barbeque at Gates Bar-B-Q. We were nervous, as we had read online that you had better be prepared to order as you walk in, or the staff would be all over you. We had no problems though, and the ribs were great.
We pushed on along I-70 to our hotel, the Drury Inn at the Arch in St. Louis. We picked it because we could walk over to the Arch after dinner. The hotel is unique in that it offers a free “lite” dinner in the evening. After the big BBQ lunch, this was perfect. Four of us then walked over to check out the Arch and its view. Emily stayed in the room as she had seen it before with her grandparents. David earned his last Junior Ranger pin to complete his vest.
