Aunt Kelly & Parker came to visit last week and we had a busy, fun-filled time. The weather was unfortunately over 100 degrees each day (and still is - yikes!), so we had to cancel a few of our outdoor plans. We were so excited to get Charlie and Parker together - we last saw each other when we visited Rochester over New Year's Eve, so needless to say the babes have changed a lot since then, when they barely paid each other mind. This time they were crawling all over the place, playing catch (kind of) and taking each other's toys - true cousinship!!
Kel & Park (or Parkies as Jack was calling her) arrived on Wednesday evening, so we just had a low-key visit at our house that night. Jack immediately warmed up to Aunt Kelly and wanted her attention at all times - she even read him a bedtime story. The babies hung out too and even sat back-to-back at one point - goofballs!
Bricktops in Frontenac and it was delish.
Friday morning we checked out the splash pad at Millenium Park in Creve Coeur, which was lots of fun. The boys and I had just been there Sunday for a play date with Emily, Lisa and Jen, so they were expert splash pad-ers. These are from that play date:
Lantern Festival at the Missouri Botanical Gardens because of the heat, so instead we just went to eat at McGurk's. It was crowded and VERY loud, but we survived.
Saturday we played some more in the morning, then came home for naps. After naptime we went to our friend Nathan Mincher's 3rd birthday party. They had a cool inflatable water slide, so Jack played on that for a little bit. It took some coercing to get him to go down the slide but once he did, he loved it!!
