Peeps Across America Road Trip Day 2, 3, 4: St. Louis; MO, KS & Way Too More KS; Parts of CO I Did Not Know Existed & Do Not Want To Visit Again...

We arrived in St. Louis on Tuesday evening and immediately went over to the Gateway Arch for a visit. Santa Peeps rode the tram to the top of the arch and met Park Ranger David Dawes who enjoyed posing with Peeps. Fortunately Peeps was well behaved at this point despite having a sense of vertigo from the Arch swaying in the wind.

The following morning Peeps posed with Denise at the checkout desk at the Drury Inn Convention Center where we spent the night - and then we found two of his compatriots standing on the jeep tires inside the parking garage in TRIPLE DIGIT HEAT! Do not ask me what they were thinking because I don't know. Suffice to say they were STUCK TO THE TIRE and Things Ended Badly for them.

Inside the Peeps container in the Jeep, chaos reigned. Had we not left instantly for the City Center Gardens, I suspect a mutiny of monstrous proportions would have occurred and there would have been melted marshmallow everywhere. We did, however, promise them a loooooooooong drive and a visit with a humongous ball of twine later in the day, so they Settled Down.

First, however, we allowed them to climb around in a giant shoe made of shoes outside the Brown Shoe company. At City Center Gardens they peeped through the eye of a giant head. And then....

Well, then they met Linda Wisdom's Fluff & Puff, who were apparently AWOL from Southern CA. As you can see from the big giant bandaged head lying on it's side in City Gardens St. Louis, things went decidedly downhill for Ann and I from there. But more about that little debacle later...

Later in the day, Peeps decided to play inside a sleeping giant's nose and... Definitely NOT a pretty sight when snot went flying everywhere.
