Instead of having a birthday party in Lexington for Reagan's 6th birthday we took a trip to St. Louis. We were fortunate enough to have Grammy & Grand-Dad, Uncle Scott & Aunt Arla, Uncle Dan, Aunt Dorothy, Heidi & Holden, as well as Tim's St. Louis family and friends join us for a super fun weekend! Thank you to everyone for making it such a special birthday for our Missy Reagan!
We drove to St. Louis Thursday afternoon, April 18, arriving just in time to order some yummy Imo's pizza for a late night snack with Grammy and Grand-Dad. Friday morning we got up early and headed to the Arch for our first official stop.
Reagan was excited to sit in the #6 car to ride to the top of the arch for her 6th birthday! :) Jackson decided he needed his picture taken with his Lucky #7 car too. lol :)

Jackson loved looking at the barges on the Mississippi river as well as the cars crossing the bridges

After our visit to the Arch we headed to Edwardsville to have lunch with Grandma, Nonna, Uncle Ran, Aunt Kayci and G to celebrate G's 3rd birthday. Happy Birthday Gruvis! :)
What a cutie!!! :)
Grandma brought special cupcakes for everyone for dessert and extra special ones for the birthday kiddos. Thanks so much Grandma! :)
After lunch we headed to the library to hang out with everyone for a while since the weather was a bit cold for visiting in any playgrounds. Miss McKinley thoroughly enjoyed the adult to child ratio. :)
It was the first time Nonna saw McKinley so we had to make sure and get a 3 generation picture :)
G and Jackson had a fabulous time together but I'm not sure how many genes these cousins can possibly share. G is so sweet and calm compared to our wild and crazy little guy!
We did our best to get a picture of Nonna with her 5 grandkids. Can't wait to add Eunice (G's little sister due in August) to this picture the next time we're together! :)
When we got back to the hotel Heidi and Holden were ready to join us at the pool. Tim and his best friend, Andy, went out for drinks while Andy's wife, Angie, and their two children, Miles and Lily, came to join our crew in the pool. Here are the 4 girls taking a swim break to pose for a quick picture for me. :)
Jackson ready for action with his Monster floaty and shark goggles :)
I tried so hard to get a picture of all three boys but I could never catch Jackson and Holden in the same shot. I do think this picture of Miles and Jackson is super cute though!
Heidi and Kennedy (with Holden getting ready to hop on) riding the huge crocodile Aunt Dorothy got especially for this trip. So much fun! :) We're going to have to see about borrowing this guy for our beach trip to St. George's Island this October!

Thanks again to everyone for the super fun day! Many more pictures from our Saturday and Sunday festivities to come! :)
