Shakespeare in the Park was quite good - Much Ado About Nothing.
We had ourselves a little picnic at the play - my aunt brought cocktail shrimp, chilled Cucumber Avocado soup, an Italian sub, and roasted garlic hummus with pita chips.
Today we slept in late, had coffee and cereal for breakfast, and eventually made our way to City Museum.
City Museum in St. Louis is awesome if you ever get the chance to go.
It's less of a museum and more of a mostly adult-sized playground with tons of tunnels, caves, slides (even one that's 10 stories high that the boyfriend and I both braved), a roof-top ferris wheel and more.

After spending the day at City Museum, we decided against going to the St. Louis Zoo.
We were hot.
And still had to drive back home.
We've decided to take another mini road-trip before we move and visit the Omaha Zoo in Nebraska.
It's supposed to be one of the best.
We then made the drive home.
I called my grandma and she had dinner waiting for us when we arrived at her house on the way.
Having only eaten cereal for the entire day and having climbed up and down 10 flights of stairs, not to mention countless walking, throughout the day, I did not feel one ounce of guilt about eating her homemade Swedish Meatballs with Egg Noodles. And then a Good Humor Ice Cream Bar. And then...
Just kidding. I stopped there.
Felt mildly guilty until she said she used turkey meatballs.
My grandma using healthier alternatives in her cooking?!
We'll see how well I did at maintaining - or maybe even losing - tomorrow morning.
Tuesday I'll update the progress page for Week 9. It's getting so close to the move!
