We stopped to see Ken's parents for a while and then went downtown to check out all of the action. We checked into our hotel and then walked down to Soulard to check out the Oktoberfest that was going on. It turned out to be a bust since the line to get in was way too long. We walked around for a bit and then stopped at a bar near the stadium for a drink. I love me some Schlafy Pumpkin Ale.
With all of the Ferguson stuff going on, there were rumors that protested would be out in full force. Luckily, it was uneventful.
Enjoying a few pregame cocktails
It was a beautiful, chilly night for a baseball game!
The Cardinals ended up losing,but it was fun to go to a playoff game. I had never gone to a playoff game before, but Ken has been to a playoff or World Series game each year since 2004.
On another note, we received a call from Kya's daycare and she had to go to the emergency vet for stitches. Apparently another dog bit her while they were playing. I felt so horrible for her, but the vet said she was completely unaware that she was even getting stitches. I guess our girl is pretty tough.
Bless her heart!
