Grant's Farm

We had a blast at Grant's Farm. We Have lived in St. Louis for almost 5 years now and we had never been there until yesterday. Boy were we missing out, it was small but the girls loved the elephant show and feeding the baby goats.

This is the home that Ulysses S. Grant grew up in.

And this picture is hard to see but it is the Bush family's personal residence. This is as close as we can get. How would it be!

Lydia is 4!

I think Lydia had a very fun birthday. Unfortunately she was sick but I think it's just a cold so we went to the Zoo anyways. Tim took off work and we enjoyed spending the day together and letting Lydia choose everything. My mom joined us at the zoo and got Lydia the cutest Build-A-Bear Kangaroo with a fairy dress and a little joey, Lydia named her Flutter-oo. By the time we got home yesterday both girls were zonked out. and Lydia woke up worse this morning she just said she wanted to sleep so that's what she's doing.

Tim has more pictures on his phone so there may be more to follow but I won't put any pictures of the cake it tasted great but it looked horrible we have all been sick and I just couldn't spend enough time on it.

I thought I would include these in the same post this is what I did for conference weekend. The cookies ended up not tasting good so the "real" cookies are underneath the better looking ones. I was experimenting.

And the stool is something I bought at Goodwill a long time ago I just needed to paint it. I love doing crafts!
