Whirlwind Visit







Well Sarah came to visit and brought the whole gang with her for 3 great days exploring St. Louis. First we all went to the Botantical gardens, then the Children's Musuem (Magic House) and ended the visit with a 4 hour plus trip to the St. Louis Zoo which we didn't even get to see everything! But it was great. All four of the little tykes were super with of course their little fits here and there but really...they were all great. I'll spare you all the picture of the hairless monkey but here are some of the hippos and the newest baby elephant Mahila I think. Louis (Sarah's hubby) was great wrangling the toddlers while the two mommies dealth with the infants. Jonathan slept for most of the Zoo but woke up in time to see the elephants and exit. In the evenings we all relaxed either by the two families hanging out or we split up for a little quality family time. My favorite part aside from seeing the two toddlers get excited at just about everything....my time with just her shopping and treating ourselves to a "little" ice cream. Miss her already!

yep...wait till Caden is two and you're in a public place with another baby. It's a cute doggie backpack from Target with a tail that I hold on to. She loves it and I'd rather have a hold on her than lose her in a crowd. She wore that thing Jeremy for 5 hours in the house she liked it so much. So yep....she's on a leash.
