We are back from St. Louis and I feel like I am trying to catch up on rest. It was a fun trip. I think that the kids handled the stress of traveling pretty well. They got to meet there aunt, uncle, and cousin. Bay loved swimming and walking. She loved running down the hotel hall. Saturday was especially hot outside and while we were doing the VBS in the neighborhood, June got a heat rash all over. She still has a little bit of it now. Bay was so cute dancing to the songs with everyone. She was doing some of the hand motions too. One morning, June was so fussy that I just laid her down on our bed and she grabbed the cover like she does with her blanket, sucked her thumb, and she was out! Tony's dad was watching the pets and house while we were gone. When we got home we checked our garden and found a huge zuccini. Those things must have crazy growth spurts because it was only about 2 inches when we left. We ate it with our dinner that night. It was pretty good. Some of our cherry tomatoes were also ready to be picked. I let Bay pick those. It is a good learning experience for her. She learns her colors because "we only pick them when they are red, Bay!" She gets to taste good organic tomatoes from her own backyard. I think we will have a bigger garden next year. Here are a few pics of the trip, family, and the zucchini.
