A weekend in St. Louis

We headed to St. Louis on Saturday morning for PBR (Professional Bull Riding) and our first stop was the Children's Hospital to see this little guy. Ladsen is one super sweet boy...his Mom is a good friend of ours and since we were in town, we thought we'd see how he was doing. He had surgery last Tuesday and was able to come home on Sunday morning.
The boys had time to swim before heading out for the night...this was common attire at the hotel this weekend. Boots and swim!

I just realized that I have no photos of PBR to post. I didn't take my camera...
However, I have photos of the boys and their buds, Parker and Patton.
Gavin wanted to stop at the arch for a bit...

Larry wanted to take the boys skateboarding at Plan Nine at the Mills. They did a little skateboarding for two hours. Gavin had a a couple falls, but no broken bones thankfully!
Maddox did a lot of belly and butt boarding...I guess that's what you'd call it!

Gavin's 1st Sleepover...

This year for his birthday...all Gavin wanted was to have his classmates over for a sleepover. Here they are...all 4 of them. They had a good time...and were konked out by 11:00pm...and up at 6:30am. They ate...and ate...and ate again. They played lots of legos and wii! Lots of burping...I couldn't have asked for a better group of kids!
Pizza and breadsticks for supper
Ice cream
Popcorn and a movie
Gavin and Ethan have a trace of their powdered donuts left on their lips.
Thanks boys for staying with was a memorable time!

Dear Gavin,

Your Dad, Maddox and I want to wish you a Happy 7th Birthday! We are so proud of the young man you're becoming. You've grown up so much...I wish I could slow it all down! However, some things just never change. I've been looking through photos for nearly 20 minutes...there are just too many cute ones to share. This one just happened to catch my eye...wouldn't know why, it just did. Looking forward to celebrating this weekend! Love you Gavin!

While I Was Sleeping...

I heard someone whisper in my ear...that I was a BIG SISTER...but I kept right on dreaming...and snoring...and snuggling in Gavin's bed! I thought I better get a good night's sleep so I can go meet my baby brother...

My Aunt DeAnn must really be losing it because she forgot to ask details is his name spelled or/ long is he..all that good stuff. She even went to see's only a few blocks away. She was going to ask all those details when she went to see him, but once she got there...all those little things didn't matter! She says he's really small, even smaller than me...and he looks kinda like me too.

I'm ready to meet him in the morning. I think I'm gonna love having a little brother!

I'll let you know what I think of him soon! Congratulations to my Mommy and Daddy...and me!
