St. Louis

We had the best time in St. Louis last weekend for the Tionól. The happy fun times began at Schlafly’s Tap Room.

The sessions on Friday night are always so crowded and I’m claustrophobic so our favorite thing to do is to hunker down sans instruments and listen to the incredibly fantastic ceili band.

John Carty taught us a fling, a reel, a jig, and a slide. It was such a gift to be in his presence for a day.

He’s a master teacher as well as musician. Even the skeleton was rapt with admiration.

The boys had a wonderful day with Grandma and Grandpa while we were at class so the next day belonged to them. To the Magic House!

Atticus almost fell over when he discovered the Magic School Bus exhibit, complete with weather forecasting station.

Liam’s perennial favorite is the rubber fish in the Lewis and Clark exhibit. Here is a boy who is thrilled to be reunited with his fish.

A little something for everyone! It was awesome. Even our sweet doggy had a special treat, a relaxing weekend at home with some of his favorite people.

We look forward to this weekend so much every year and we’re so lucky to have the chance to attend. Major props to Mike Mullins and his family as well as everyone at Focal Point who makes this possible!
