Weekly Photo Challenge: Near and Far

I am not sure if this is what they had in mind when they came up with this week’s photo challenge, but I am going with it. I was playing around with the camera while we were visiting the arch in St. Louis, and while I am not sure I got what I was looking for (I’m still not even sure what that was exactly), these images strike me as both near and far. All of these pictures are very similar, but I couldn’t decide which one to use, so I used them all.

The Best Day Ever!

The kids all agree that today was the best day EVER!!! You must be wondering what possibly could have happened that would earn today such an honor.

Was it the fact that we arrived in St. Louis, Missouri and had our first view of the Gateway Arch?

Was it because we were able to ride the tram all the way to the top of the arch?

Was it the view from the top of the arch that made today the best day ever?

Perhaps it was the original Courthouse that was across the street?

I personally think that all of these things made today pretty great, but none of them happen to be why today was the best. No, today was the best day ever simply because… it rained. Very. Hard.

It wasn’t the arch. It wasn’t the view. It wasn’t the tram ride. It wasn’t St. Louis. It was the puddles. Lots and lots of puddles. And the ability to run through them over and over again. Best. Day. Ever.
