Cakeway to the West: Part 4...

...This is probably the last of these posts for awhile. I'm still having fun with the search and I'm still loving everyone sending me pics as they find theirs (even my boss!), but I've found all of them that are close to me and I'm not sure when I'll get to other areas to find more. Don't worry though, as soon as I find them, I'll be sure to post on here...and Twitter...and won't miss it!

Cake #25 The Lewis and Clark Boat House
AR no longer wants to be photographed by herself with the cake. Apparently, I've traumatized cake which I guess could be a good thing. Nah, she still loves to eat it! I yelled at some kids walking by and asked them to take this pic. They were the only ones around and were walking away from us so I didn't have time to mess with the settings too much hence the overexposure, but hey, we got the pic!

The cake by itself. This was after AR found the boats and we saw the boys making out behind the boathouse.

Cake #26 The Shrine of St. Rose
OMG! This two were killing me with their cuteness on the cakes. We ran into fellow cake hunters here and they were really nice. We exchanged a few tips to each other and went on our way.

Cake #27 St. Charles County Old Courthouse
This one originally sat on 2nd Street and I'd seen it a few months ago. Now it sits on the courthouse steps. I am in love with this picture and the angle-go me!

Cake #28 St. Charles First Missouri State Capitol
I almost counted this as a half cake. It was dark and it was behind a fence so you couldn't get close to it. On my camera, you could hardly see it. Luckily, when I got home, I was able to mess with the lighting so it officially counts as a full cake now and I don't have to go back in the daylight to get a better pic.

Here is the Brink Family and AR with the cake way back in the background. Can you see it?

Cake #29 Katy Trail
AR hasn't been feeling the cakes lately. This time, I didn't push her by setting her on top. I let her walk up to it and lookie there, she climbed up on it all by herself!

Cake #30 St. Charles Heritage Museum
After that, she was excited about cake hunting. She saw this one and took off running while yelling, "CAKE!" Don't mind that my child looks a bit like Phoebe Buffay when she runs.

This was definitely her favorite so far. It had pictures of boats all over it. She walked in a circle saying, "Boat...boat...boat." Then she told Mommy to sit down so we sat on the corner of the cake and took a little rest.

Which ones have you found?

That is such a fun project to find all of them. I love the picture at the courthouse! Nicely done. :)
