St Louis is rather pretty first thing in the morning. Our first day out was good. Plenty to see out the window and a spacious sleeper cabin where the boys could build a fort and play cat warriors... J is "stinkypelt" N is "rottenpaw."
Only snafu of the day was j locking himself in the loo. The porter was kind enough to get him out...
Later today we will pull into Chicago for an overnight stay with aunt alex & uncle Thom.
Train travel is really nice, I highly recommend it if you can swing it!
