I mean really. With some of our fabulous vacations of the past, I really must be crazy to keep planning these things. Last year's trip to KC was definitely a tough one. Ellie was falling apart the majority of the time. However, after a year of therapies and a lot of help, she is doing a lot better. So I was cautiously optimistic going into this trip to St. Louis. And you know what?
It was ok!
Not perfect, but not horrible. Not easy, but not nearly as hard. I'll take it.
There were lots of fun times, new adventures and great experiences...
On our way!
American Girl and The Cheesecake Factory!
The hotel pool!
The Arch! We were there on J's birthday!
The Magic House!
Riverboat Cruise! Also on daddy's birthday!
The view Austin loved waking up to every morning.
The St. Louis Zoo!
Matt and Gina, J and all the kids! So fun to have them join us at the Zoo!
The Last Night.
Now that I look back at the pictures, I'm ready to go again! :)
