Yep -- love the pool! Kayla made HUGE improvement in the two days we were there . . .she was without floaties the whole time . . . but definitely still under the watchful eye of Mommy or Daddy!
Tyler -- still isn't too keen on watching touching his face, but he is also getting more comfortable around the water!
We always try to take in one "outing" while we are there -- and this trip we tried the Science Center. Free admission -- so that way nice!!!! Overall, it was too old for K and T -- but J seemed to "get" most of the exhibits!
We decided to pay for the planetarium show . . . um . . . it was a little advanced (read -- boring) for most of our clan:) Live and learn, right????
So there was a walkway that connected the two parts of the museum . . . and underneath the walkway was an interstate highway. So, the only thing between K & J and the highway below was that triangle of glass. My palms are sweaty right now just looking at this picture:)
Of course, the main reason we chose St. Louis was to have a chance to visit Great Grandpa -- our first visit there since Great Grandma passed away in August. We are so blessed -- how many 3 year olds have concrete memories of hanging out with their 97-year old great grandfather????
Having a little piano duet action . . .
Always interesting trying keep everyone busy:)
The kids and grandpa
The fam and grandpa
Since great grandpa thought the idea of visiting McDonalds for lunch sounded good, we went for it! He insisted on treating with ice cream:) Super fun trip . . . just the right amount of time for us!
