Summer time and the living is easy.....

I just love St. Louis in the summer time. I am not sure who is familiar with St. Louis or if you have ever been to this funky little state but it truley has a soul.
Its gorgeous and green lots of river and lakes if your into the outdoors and if your more of a city kind of person. Then you have downtown loaded with cute shops,bars amazing resturants with great architecture cobblestones streets and all. I love coming to town to visit my family, we have fish frys, go boating, music and movies in the park. I have been here for 2 weeks and have such a great time soaking in family and this new baby.

I went with my brother and my Mom to the " Gypsie Caravan Festival", where there are  loads of  antique venders and others selling their goodies of wonder and delight. It was about 90 degrees and it was packed to the gills. But, we found parking and headed for the sales !

But, the first stop was food. We were all starving and we couldnt resist all the yummy street venders.

I opted for the low carb chicken on a stick in which is a very popluar in Puerto Rico and an Arnold Palmer.

My brother who can handle the calories and the sugar got a rootbeer float and a blooming onion :). Mom saw this man with potato and followed her tastebuds to that stand.

Then we headed to shop till we dropped...in which I almost did because between the hills, the heat and the people. It was like being in a costco on a saturday before christmas. Nuts.

Mom found a cute old time chair for the baby !!

Farewell to Mike and Michael James :)

Posted by PicasaA day with family . Missing my Dad but there is nothing I can do about his choices. We had a wonderful dinner with everyone and of course the star of the show was "SAVANNAH" !!! She is the highlight of each day, the best thing since sliced bread. Love being here watching her grow. I actually think her eyes changed today, they were more hazel now they look darker , more like Melissas. She smiles when you hold her hand and every night before she goes to bed she gets the hiccups. I am so happy to have this time with her at this age.

Savannah is here and we LOVE her !!

She smells like sweetmilk, she is softer than velvet and is as lovely as lovely can get. I am talking about my new baby cousin Savannah. She is Perrrr-Fect ! I am here on baby boot camp as Mike would say and staying with Melissa. Its been such a pleasure. She seriously is the perfect baby, she doesnt cry and always looks super cute. Oh did I say she is super adorable. I mean it. This is not me just saying that she is a cute baby, she is REALLY a cute baby. I am happy to be here with them during this special time.

Posted by PicasaWe all took our turns holding the baby, and of course , we must first use the "hand  sanitzer" !! LOL...

Michael James goes to visit Washington University as possiblity for Graduate School !! We are getting everyone to move to St. Louis :)

Posted by PicasaWhile in St. Louie Mike took his son to see Washington University as a possbile choice for Michael James and his girlfriend Melissa to go to graduate school. They both graduate next year, (wow , still cant believe how fast he breezed through college). But, it would be ideal for him to be in St. Louis. I know my family would be happy....especially my Mom because Michael James is her favorite Grandson. LOL .....

We did it !!!

Well we missed the tornado by 15 hours, we packed, we drove, we unloaded and unpacked some more....But we couldnt of done it without the help of family. Family makes the world go around. I cant thank my family enough for helping me help my mother. It meant the world to me to have your help. Thank you for picking us from the airport, giving us a place to stay, helping unload a VERY large truck filled with 26'x12 woth of stuff and just being there for Mike and I. We apperciate all your help and love you all very much.

Family Fun Day with Kevyn, Michael and Shane :)

Yes, we are a blended family. Yes, we are not of the norm. But, we are a family with heart. They say babys build bridges, and we have all built this bridge to each other. I am so happy to have my husbands two children in our life and so excited about the baby. Thank you both for all the love ....we love you both. Posted by Picasa
