A morning in Hermann Park

We spent Monday eating French Toast, running around Hermann Park, bowling for pigeons and riding the train (Wells kept his excitement about this one on the inside).

Splash pads and Shwarma

The downtown spash pad is across the street from a really great specialty foods market so my favorite outing right now is splashing for Wells followed by Shwarma for us. This time we started with gelato too - it was a special occasion, Nicki was here.

Friday I got a text sending me to a clue that started a scavenger hunt around the Heights. Clues written in rhyme sent me on a tour of 'our' spots, each with a present and the next clue waiting for me. The last brought me back home where I found a large (but not that large) box on the porch. The next thing I knew Nicki was jumping out and throwing glitter confetti and I got to keep her for a whole weekend. We started off with dinner out and didn't stop till eating till she left.

Another example

That last post reminded me of another pic that needed to make it on to the blog. First outing to a splash pad. It took him a minute to warm up to the idea....

Not a fish

Sprinkler play date at Kathryn's the other day. He sat right here almost the entire time, with short breaks for lunch and to play in the dirt. This boy is not a fan of water and 8 other kids having fun in the sprinkler on the other side of the yard didn't even tempt him. Possible upside, maybe we won't have to worry about peer pressure creating problems with this one?

Mother's Day

Not quite the happy-love-each-other photos I was hoping for, but what can you do. Whenever Wells is having a rough day he heads for Baxter, and it was a two-Baxter kind of morning.

Just cause I like this sweater vest

A perfect afternoon

Since Shauri is out of town on actual Mother's Day we celebrated her's a week early with a BBQ in the back garden on a gorgeous Sunday afternoon. 


(It's possible this boy gets just a little too much attention...)

The ranch

Three mums, four kids, two days at Sara's ranch. 

(I got prettier pics when we went last year - Wells was 5 months old so we were waking up much earlier.)
