enough about boring stuff! onto the fun stuff! my parents treated us to a weekend in st. louis at the end of april. it was SO nice. see, my family used to meet once a year in a random city and the men would go to a baseball game and the girls would take care of the kids and go shopping. as there got to be more and more kids, it got to be harder and harder to get together and since everyone was so busy, dad decided that he would take matters into his own hands. he bought a pujols package so that he could go to two games and each child and their spouse could go to a game as well. while the spouses were at the games, mimi and papa would keep the kids! how great is that?!?! so, mom and dad decided to go with us to keep dillon. dillon slept in their hotel room and they let us go out to eat on friday night while they took dillon to cracker barrel. then, the next morning, we went downtown, ate breakfast at the st louis bread company (aka panera bread...we really wish we had one here!!!), and mimi and papa enjoyed dillon at the arch while ben and i enjoyed the cards beating the astros in the bottom of the 9th!! it was so great! they beat them 4-3 and there was almost a fight, which added to the greatness of everything. ha! so, here's some pictures of our fun weekend.
when we got home, we had a squirrel fiasco that made ben nervous (and me nervous) and we decided that ben should patch up all the holes where we had started work. so, this is his wonderful job on the laundry room! we did lose the curtain that was hiding the washer/dryer, but that just means we get to put a real wall up soon! yea! and the squirrels are gone, i think ;) i'll fill you in if you want details later.
and how could i not put this picture up? i mean, he's ADORABLE!!!!!!!! he's getting so big and we're so proud of dillon. we also had an ultrasound for baby #2. there is only one baby #2 which i'm very thankful for ;) and the due date is either decemer 3 or december 5. my birthday is on december 4. so, that's probably when this little booger will come out. ha! we love you all and thanks for putting up with all these pictures.
