Kyle's birthday, a recap.

The sun was shining warm and bright on Saturday morning as we slowly got up out of bed.  The kitchen window full of sunflowers set the tone for our day.

We got cleaned up and headed downtown to Rooster, a great little restaurant for a weekend brunch.  We both ate delicious meals and shared a crepe with nutella and strawberries.  I'd like more right now.

We then walked a few blocks over to the London Tea Room, one of Kyle's very favorite places in the city. We shared a pot of sencha green tea, which I turned out to dislike, but it was a lovely time anyway.

(At this point, Kyle was probably already tired of pictures.)

From there we made our way over to the stadium, but not without stopping for pictures along the way, of course.  Some with my phone.  Some with my dear Canon.

The game was a bummer.  The Cardinals lost by a 7 or 8 runs, I think.  I spent way more time people-watching, as usual.  It was fun just to be there on such a gorgeous day over opening weekend.

After the game, we walked down toward The Landing to eat sushi at The Drunken Fish.

I don't really like sushi, but Drunken Fish offers many alternatives.  I ordered a BLT roll (yes, that is what you think it is) and it was delicious!

We completed the day at our favorite place, The Gelateria.  Kyle and I had peach and chocolate gelato, respectively, then finally went back home to relax and watch Dr. Who.

It could not have been a better day!  We basically ate our way across downtown St. Louis, but hey, that's our favorite way to celebrate!
