St. Louis trip-warning lots of pictures!!!!

We went to St. Louis this past weekend. We wanted to go to Busch Stadium to see a game so we could mark it off our list of ballparks. For those of you who don't know, Gene has, I mean we have, the goal of going to every ballpark in the country, 4 down 26 to go. So far we've only been to the close ones, Chicago, Cincinati, and St. Louis. So we went to the zoo first on Saturday then over to the game, and I'll have you know Dylan made the whole game, maybe not in our seats but we were in the ballpark the whole game. We went to Grant's farm on Sunday and then to Union Station before leaving on Monday. So I'm going to let the pictures tell the rest of the story.

Almost there.

The zoo!!

Baseball game...Dylan making friends

Grant's farm-petting the goats
This one thought Gene's shorts had hay hanging on them.

Then the rain came, uhoh no umbrella. Gene had to wait in line for the trolley

Union Station-playing on the toys


Homeward bound

1st Haircut

Well this has been a topic of discussion in our house for a while now. Dylan hasn't ever had a lot of hair, but in the back it was getting long and he had a little tail. Well I wanted to take him to cut it, but when I start to do it someone would say how cute his curl was and then I would change my mind. Well it finally got to the point where it was just annoying, it was getting long around his ears and stuff. So I finally did it, I called and made the appointment. Now I had doubts after making the appointment, and then realized I didn't have anyone to go with me to take picutres. So I called Brittany and was talking to her about it, and she volunteered to come be my photographer. So thank you so much Brittany.

"Mom are you sure about this?"

ok here goes

All handsome!!

He did great! She even used the razor around his ears and neck line and he didn't even flinch. I was so proud of how well he did. And he looked so cute when she was done. His haircut was actually a few weeks ago, yes I'm behind again on blogging. I'm going to blame it on the house construction and the sunny weather. By the way our dining room is now ready for painting. Now just to find time to paint it.

Funny moments...

Dylan had been sick earlier this week, we think it was roseola. He ran a real high fever for 2 or 3 days and then on Wednesday he broke out in a rash. He's better now, and since he's been feeling better I thought I would show you what he's been up too...

This is Dylan smelling daddy!!!

We have, or should I say had, been making Amish bread. Well today Dylan dumped the whole bag of yeast on himself, the counter, and the floor. If anyone has made this you know how much sugar is in it so it was not that much fun to clean up to say the least. Oh, and yes I was standing right there, turned to answer my phone, see what can happen in a split second.Dylan's own corn on the cob, and yes he's using corn cob holders we didn't want him to get messy :)
