HAPPY BIRTHDAY CHERIE

Today is my youngest daughters 14th birthday. She won't let me post a picture of her (I'll sneak one in later). Each year since she turned 10 we have had her birthday dinner at The Lemp Mansion here in St Louis.

The Lemp family owned the Lemp Brewery and in 1870 was the largest brewery in St Louis, but that's not what the family is most famous for.

The mansion is one of the most haunted places here in St Louis because of the numerous deaths and suicides in the family.
Click here to learn more about the Lemp family it really is fascinating.
The mansion not only operates as a restaurant but as a bed & breakfast. Cherie and I are going to stay the night in the spooky place one of these days, we just haven't gotten up the nerve yet!
My computer is acting up so I can't show you the pictures that I took today but it was a real treat today because the lady in the gift shop told us we could wander around the three floors and the basement all we wanted. Cherie was so excited! Maybe I caught some ghosts in the pictures?! You will have to settle for some pictures from their web site for now.
Hope everyone has had a great weekend!
Peggy
