Our first glimpse of the Gateway Arch.
Just as we arrived in the city, the Saints posted this picture on Twitter. The Who Dats have arrived!

Centenary United Methodist Church in downtown St. Louis. It's an old church in the inner city. The sanctuary was built in 1869, and it is still beautiful. They are committed to staying in downtown St. Louis, and are especially proud of their homeless ministry, called The Bridge, which serves 3000 meals each week.

Crown Candy. It is St. Louis' oldest soda fountain, and serves lunch, ice cream treats, and, of course, candy. It's like time stood still.
The candy counter.
The Crown sundae. Yum.
