I went to a "convention" for young widows that was held in St. Louis, MO. Left Friday morning, and we just got home. Shelby went with me. We had a great time! She enjoyed being an "almost grown up" getting to lounge around in the hotel room, while I spent time at the activites. I did take her to the "Hard Rock Cafe" so she could get one of the T-shirts, and a couple other places. There were about 45 of us younger widows from all over the country. One even came from Canada!
One of the activities we were able to take part in was a trip to the Anheiser-Busch brewery. I am not much of a drinker, but it was pretty interesting. The adults did partake in a couple of beers at 9:30 AM, which made our group come up with the slogans: "BEER, it's not just for BREAKFAST anymore." and "BEER: The Breakfast of Champions." (No, Shelby did NOT have any beer!)
We had fun, and we were able to give each other some much needed support. I will post photos of our trip as soon as I get them developed.
