St. Louis

Mac had Friday off so we headed over to St. Louis to see the Wirig family.

Annie and G couldn't wait to get Mac off the bus so we could leave. Annie had her "Ellie" dress on all day but the excitement ended about 20 minutes into the drive. Annie does not travel well:) surprised?

Friday we went to the arch saw the museum and let the kids run 

Then went to the cathedral basilica of St. Louis. It was massive and the whole ceiling was not painted but covered in mosaic tiles! It was beautiful! After, we headed to the park to have some of st, Louis' famous ribs from poppy's. yum! Poor little Mac started complaining that his stomach hurt and then threw up A lot! Thinking that he threw up because the night before he had 3 double cheeseburgers at McDonald's we put him in the stroller and pushed him around the Zoo. He was a trooper and threw up just once more. Luckily the next day he was feeling better and acting like himself.

It was a long day but we had to take advantage of the 70 degree weather!

Friday night we had some custard- yum!

Saturday was rainy and cold so we went to the botanical gardens. It was huge and beautiful, i can only imagine how amazing it will be in a month.

After, we went to lunch at Fritz's where they make their own root beer and flavored sodas. We had a delicious lunch and drank way too many sodas!

After that we took it easy and let the kids nap and play. They played so good with each other! It's times like these that make me want to live close to family.

3 days just wasn't enough for Briggles to get use to us:)

Beej and Drew invented a knew game! Watch out it's going to be big!

The kids attempted rock band

Sunday we woke up to the sneaky leprechaun and the stomach bug. We were planning on going to church but as the morning went on, Drew and I felt more sick so we decided to cut the trip short. I slept most of the way while poor drew got us home in record time. We haven't moved much since but a good night sleep has us feeling better. Minus the sickness it was a perfect weekend! Thank you beej and Katie for being such great host and showing us your beautiful city!

What a fun time! Glad you live close enough to see each other once in a while! Too bad about the sickness though. Hope you are all feeling better.

Miss you,

I love all these pictures and we LOVED having you guys here. Makes us wish we had family closer too... P.s. Does Annie not wear a seatbelt while in the car? (None of the pictures have her strapped in) Ha ha... SO Annie:)

Haha Katie I was going to comment on that but hoped no one nocticed:) but it's a fight and I hate that she can get out of her carseat but in my defense I rebuckled her like 20 times during the drive.

Ha ha Ashlee! No judgements here. I just thought it was funny that she was in her seat, crying and looking like she was caged in, but not quite... Love that little crazy girl!
