Birthday Visit

So, It's been a long time since I've posted, but then again, lots has happened. On August 27th (my Birthday) Tyler's parents and brother came out to visit us! It was AWESOME to have them! This first picture is of Ashton helping us get the house ready for our guests.

While they were here we went to the Science Museum...where Ashton got his first Build-a-Bear (a fisher monkey named Zee), went to the Botanical Gardens, the St. Louis Zoo, and we even ventured out to Six Flags!

The zoo was so fun! We always seem to have luck when we're there because most of the animals are out and moving. Here is my boy with Papa and Nana, and the following is at the sweet penguin house.

The St. Louis Zoo has an awesome penguin house. Sure it's freezing cold inside, but the birds are so close to you. Ashton loves that, and loves when they caw, flap their wings, swim and splash.

And then here are the boys on the carousel.

The following pictures are at the hippos. They are usually pretty entertaining, swimming laps by the windows for all to see.

Ashton would get into position and when the hippo got close....

He would run over to Dad to finish the spectacle safely.

The Missouri Botanical Gardens

This is seriously one of the most beautiful gardens on earth.

Nikki Art Sculptures throughout the Gardens

Where there is water, there is Ashton...

Mr. Mischief

The Grand Finale

I'll admit, when I saw what Ashton was doing I was furious. Luckily Tyler had a sence of humor about the situation and snapped a pic. All I know is that the toilet lock has saved us a fortune! We had a great time with the Rust's! Thanks for the visit!
