Cleaning and scrubbing will wait ’till tomorrow, but children grow up, as I’ve learned to my sorrow. So quiet down cobwebs! Dust go to sleep! I’m rocking my baby. Babies don’t keep. – Ruth Hamilton

Summer Has Begun- Part One

Last Friday marked my last day of work! After a little (or a lot) celebration Friday night, we headed to St. Louis for some summer fun!

My kids did great, but I was a little out of sorts with little patience.  I owe my parents a huge apology for my negativity. Now looking back at pictures we did so much! My dad stayed in town a few extra days, so my kids had all their attention.

I think I was still feeling so negative about Mack's progress and the anticipation of his appointment-which was on Wednesday. I only wish I could develop my parents patience!!! They are one of a kind and I am truly blessed to have two people (besides my husband) that always love matter how much I stress:) or act out!
I Love you two!!!

We started our five day journey attending my nieces 6th birthday party. They painted and "socialized" (sarcasm-they play with each other) with other kids.  I am glad we made it!

The next day, after shoe shopping, my dad and I took Mack to the Cards game-he made it through five innings and enjoyed all his alone time! This was really nice to do and made me realize it will be one of my goals this summer.  Thank goodness we will still have our babysitter, because I plan on giving each child their special time with mommy!
Love this picture!

After the game the whole family got together for some dinner.  This was one of the two nights together!

Then we met my cousin, aunt and her three kids at the zoo. We spent a lot of time there and rode the train around-huge hit and the three older kids got to yell, "all aboard!!!" In the microphone.

I love having my kids around my mom and her sister!  Aunt Sharon is a special lady who has gone through more than anyone I know.  She is an inspiration for us during our time with Mack.

Our two boys!  Lincoln wanted to touch Cam!

Avery was hooked on Adalynn and left Mack out a bit-this is a new concept for us since they've been so close.

I put part one because I have pictures from the Botanical Gardens and much more! 
Today (being our first day at home) was spent organizing and tomorrow it will be the park...all day!!!  Then to the lake we go again for more cousin time!
Happy Summer!!!
