St. Louie

We just got back from a trip to St. Louis Missouri. That is where we went to school and lived for 3 years so we have a lot of old friends and a wonderful ward we left behind, etc. What brought us there was the priceless opportunity to see our friend be married in the temple. His name is Steve Baker and Brett went to school with him and became great friends from hours of studying together. He took the discussions and was baptized while we were in school so, as you can imagine, it was cool to see him take that next step toward eternal progression.

Madelin and Kayleigh had loads of fun together. They would giggle and squeal and laugh and sing. Then they would fight and cry and scream. Then they would start all over with the fun stuff, and then repeat the fighting. We got to stay with our really good friends, The Davis's . They bought our old trailer when we moved so it was kinda fun to be back there, believe it or not. The kids and I stayed for a whole week and never ran out of fun things to d and old friends to see. Thanks for getting married Steve, so we could have a legit reason to fly out. :)

On our way to the zoo with my good friend Betsy and Madelin's little friend Taya. They drove 6 hours from Arkansas so we could be together for probably the last time ever. Thanks Alex for being so nice and letting her spend the gas money! You are loved!

Madelin two summers ago, standing by the same penguin you see below. Man time flies!

Owen suffocating the penguin.

Madelin and Owen by the penguins. You can see by Owen's face that it was a hot day!

Madelin and her friends Taya and Gwyn with a sleepy monkey behind them.

After the Zoo!

Just me and the kids flyin' stand-by! Scary! We did well, considering.
