Family Trip to St. Louis!!

This summer our family took a trip to St. Louis. Andy and I had been debating on where to go for a family vacation this year, but had not decided for sure. Then he was asked to go to a conference in St. Louis on a Tuesday. So we decided to make it a long weekend by leaving the Saturday before...thus our trip to St. Louis. And we all had a blast!!!! We wore ourselves and friends out!! I've been recuperating today, and trying to get laundry done. :)

My BFF from college, Emily Jenkins and her family live in St. Louis, and they took us out on the town on Sunday. We started off at the St. Louis Zoo. It has been said that taking a picture with Phil the gorilla is a tradition so we did. Emily and I both have 4 kids--3 girls and a boy. Needless to say our little monkeys were right at home. :)

Emily and I had our pics taken, too. I'm sure Drew is wondering what on earth we are doing. :) You never can be sure when Emily and I get together. We had fun talking about other vacations our families should do together. Or...just leave the kids with the dads and she and I could get away. Hee hee! :)

On Monday we went to Six Flags. It had been stormy during the night before and most of the morning, but it turned out to be a great day to go. The crowds were super low, and Andy and the kids didn't have to worry about long waits for the roller coasters. Naomi wanted to ride the Ferris Wheel in the worst way. So here's one half of the family on one side of our caged ride...

...and here's the other half! Yes, I sucked it up and rode the darn thing. I have a HUGE problem with heights!!! You can also tell it was a no make-up kind of day for me as well. Not my finest pic, but oh well. :)

We were exhausted on our way home, but it was sooooo worth it. The kids loved it!!!

Now, I would love to say that I will keep updating my blog, but I'm making no such promises. :) I have more pics I would like to post, though, so I guess we'll see. Till then...
