Once we got into St. Louis, we went out to dinner and came back to the hotel. It took awhile to get the kids down for bed. We had requested a crib in our room and it turned out to be a 'pack and play' which Luke will not sleep in. So we all piled into the King bed. I don't know how people do the "family bed" it was too much. John and I got little sleep.
Friday morning, we went to the Zoo, it was so neat. The kids loved it. Here are some pics from the zoo. There are a lot of pics.
She loved the elephants.
Luke wanted to get out so bad. He was looking at all the monkeys.
We were lost. We couldn't find our way out of the zoo.
This was so cute! As soon as the fireworks started, Caleb put his hands over his eyes.
Kate goofing around.
It was raining the morning of the 4th, but we were still able to catch some of the parade without it raining on us.
After the parade, we walked over to the park that had these fountains everywhere. The kids loved it.
One of Kate's favorite things was to play with the phone. We had to unplug it.
Here Luke is climbing on things in the room!
That night, we walked back down to the arch to catch the second fireworks show. Kate got an umbrella from the zoo and is obsessed with it.
