Final vacation post!

Are you all  sick  of my vacation pictures yet? haha. I promise, today is the last vacation update :-P

Our final stop on vacation were  the  City Gardens in St. Louis. This is a fairly new thing, and really fun.  Lots of fountains, etc. and you can splash and wade in them! They even have people employed to  sit down there and not really  be  lifeguards, but  just monitor the  swimming and splashing. It was fun!

Some of my favorite pictures from our vacation were taken here...enjoy!

This is called "country folk in the big city" lol :-P

This was the main  "splash" area

Dancing in the "rain"

I've got a thing for doing water  pictures in black  and white  haha.

Walk  with  me Daddy....

They had a lot  of fun!

"Why the hell  am I boating  in a fountain?"

This was  a cool wading pool with fountain and stepping stones! Raya of course wouldn't get in "the sea" :-P

Madison and Brynley  had no problem getting in though!
We forced Raya to sit for a picture

She  was whining,  but not really crying

This was her "smile" haha

I was waving--raya looks like she's a tiger clawing something LOL

These make me laugh so hard. Lee had the camera and was playing around with "artistic" photos through the grass. I told him they just look  like  peeping tom pictures!!! haha

Lee the "artistic" peeping tom :-P

Thanks Lee, this gives whole new meaning to the term "bubble butt" haha

Caleb was not thrilled with Lee's picture taking haha...I did black and white to class up the middle finger pose ;-)

Props Lee---you caught some cute running ones though!

Check out her tongue haha...she was concentrating hard!

Loaded up in the car with snacks for the drive home!  (We turned Brielle forward facing in her carseat for this trip, to save our sanity haha)

And they're out! :-)
