Well, our vacation did not go as planned, thanks to BP. But, we rescheduled and ended up having a great time minus the ocean. We rented a cabin on a lake in Missouri for 3 nights...where we cooked out, took some hilly bike rides, hung out at the beach, and played at the playground. When the weekend came around, we headed to the city...St. Louis. We went to the City Museum (fun, but better for kids a little bit older) and the Children's Museum/Magic House (which was crazy good). With some our good friends that used to live in Memphis, we took a bike ride to a restaurant on a lake, where the kids got to feed ducks and the adults could chat and catch up. Finally, we finished our trip with a PERFECT cardinals game...with kids, that is. Right when we got inside, it rained for about 2 minutes, cooling the temp down to about 70. Then, to top things off, it was a ridiculously quick game, just over 2 hours. So, by time we consumed our hotdogs, bbq nachos, lemon icy, cotton candy, and adult beverages, it was time to walk back to the hotel.
So....It wasn't Orange Beach, but it was fun...and the commute was soooooooo much better with the kiddos!
And, of course, I don't really know how to put together a blog...so all my pics are in reverse order?!?
