Weekend Recap

How was your weekend!? We spent the weekend out of town celebrating my nieces birthdays. And nieces as in 2 of them. Look at these cuties.

We loaded up the car and headed to St. Louis, but not before Jack made sure to grab his new friends.

Our hotel wasn't quite ready when we got there so we headed over to the mall where there happened to be a Nintendo tour going on. They had DS stations set up for kids to play and a Mario Cart competition for the older kids.

The best $8 ever spent.
The hotel called shortly after to let us know our rooms were ready so we suited up and headed to the pool.

Jack LOVES his uncle Chris. He rarely goes to other people let alone males so the fact that he not only went to him, but in the water was huge. If you look closely though you'll notice his lovey(blanket) had to come with him. And his na na (binky). He had a low grade fever Friday and was still a little cranky Saturday so he got his binky more than usual. We're really trying to limit it to just naps and night time. It's just so darn cute when he says, na na, na na in his sweet little voice. Wish this momma luck!

Relaxing after bath time. Ahhh the life of a baby.

I'll be showing you the outtakes from this picture later. They're epic.

I'm really trying to reign in the spending this month which meant resisting the urge to by a new outfit for the weekend. I did wear these new scalloped shorts, but I had purchased them a few months for Chicago, but didn't end up wearing them. I'm also wearing the same stripped sweater jacket I wore last week, just paired with different bottoms. Oh and those wedges, $1. Cha-ching.

We stayed at the new Drury Inn Plaza right next to the Chesterfield Mall and the view from our room was amazing. I was a little worried about how Jack would do sleeping in the same room as us, but he slept all night! 

After breakfast, we checked out and headed to a waterpark for some sun, swimming, and slides.

Ben and his cousins had a blast going down the different slides and floating in the lazy river. Jack went down one slide with me, but he mostly relaxed on me in the lazy river and cried at the waves in the wave pool. He also enjoyed putting on brother's hat and floaties.

Happy birthday to my sweet nieces and thanks for letting us celebrate with you!
