June Family Fun Trip

Even though I haven't been documenting, we have been keeping up with our family fun outings each month. For June, we went to St. Louis for a long weekend, and we had a blast! We crammed a lot in, but the kids loved spending intentional time together and trying some new things!
Our kids are good travelers...thank goodness!

Bretton got sick (really, for the first time) the first night we were there. He was awake every.single.hour, and that made for a long day the next day. Luckily, it was only a 12ish hour virus and passed quickly. Let's just say, I'm glad I didn't have to wash all the sheets and towels we went through. Poor boy! 

We took the kids to Grant's Farm. It was our first time going, and they really enjoyed it! Feeding the goats with baby bottles was a hit!

The next day, we went to the Botanical Garden. That was a little bit of torture for Landry because she wants to pick every flower that she sees. :) They loved feeding the fish and seeing the Lego exhibits.
Some of our best friends live in St. Louis, and they joined us for a lot of our outings. It was so fun!

The last night, we went to Circus Flora. It's a local St. Louis Circus, and it was great! It was small and cute and not overwhelming for the kids at all. Landry had cotton candy for the first time, and she was a fan!

When we checked in the hotel, the kids kept asking if we were going to live there. When we checked out on Sunday, Landry told someone at breakfast (in a super sad voice) that we moved out of ANOTHER hotel and had to go back to our real house. Gosh, they are so mistreated!
Love these moments with my little family...they are passing in a flash!

I successfully went almost 2 months without blogging. That wasn't planned, and I'm a tad frustrated with myself that I'm so behind....oh well! I'm not even going to try to play catch-up much. We have had so much going on the past few months it has just been a big blur!
A few of the high points...
-We are alive, we are healthy, the kids are beyond happy...not a lot has changed there!
-We moved back home after a full 6 weeks in the hotel. There is still blue tape all over my house marking things that need to be touched up. It is beyond frustrating to be out that long and things not be fixed the way they need to be. We are getting there, but still not "settled." I haven't unpacked all the boxes, pictures are not back on the wall, but we are in our own beds! The kids randomly break down and ask to go back to the hotel. They loved every second of that! They loved sharing a bed, having a swimming pool, eating whatever they wanted was a dream vacation for them!
-Bretton got released from physical therapy and is doing FAB! He is hitting all of his milestones, and actually exceeding several. He is a rock star, and is doing just great. He should be completely done with his helmet in two weeks!

I'm so behind on updating pictures, but if you follow me on Instagram or we're friends on Facebook, you've seen more than enough! 

I'm hoping to be back in the groove. I've missed you all! :)
