the first of louis vacation june 2007

at the end of june, our little fam of four headed to st. louis for a little getaway! we spent the majority of our time hanging with the yost family. rachel was my roommate freshman year at saint louis university. her husband brian, and daughters grace and emma kept us entertained day in and day out! they were troopers! especially since rachel is major preggo-due at the end of august with sweet baby girl norah. the first night we were in st. louis, we got in pretty late and headed over to the yost's house for a great pizza dinner. the kids finally got to get to sleep around 10pm--super late for my 7pm kiddos! so, we planned to meet the yost's at the zoo bright and early the next morning to beat the heat and crowds! my kids didn't wake up til 10:30am! what?!? so the pics above are of our "plan b". we met rachel, grace, and emma at an old fashioned dairy queen for lunch. the kids had a blast running free, playing on the toddler-safe indoor toys, and pushing the button to blow the whistle on the train running around the ceiling. after lunch, the daddys and kids spent the afternoon swimming while the mommys had a little kid-free pamper time! rachel and i got haircuts, manicures, and pedicures! it was so nice! more pics to come...
