Strawberry Picking

We took the kids strawberry picking this morning at Lakeview Farms in St. Peters. Connie wanted to be held (consequence of his poor sleeping at night), Mookie complained about straw in her shoes (consequence of not listening to me when I told her to put on socks and tennis shoes) and Cece was helpful. We didn't get a ton of pics because the camera froze up on us. Goes to show you what can happen when you have expectations!! When will I learn?!

Last night, after mass, we wanted to go to a nice restaurant with ambiance. We drove by McGurk's and the patio was overfull. We decided to head down to the St. Charles riverfront and eat somewhere outside on Old Main Street. Well, after parking and walking to four places, we decided the kids couldn't wait for 45 minutes (apparently everyone had the same idea as us!) so we thought it would be fun to take them to see the fountain at Ameristar and to eat at one of the restaurants in there. Again, we had expectations!! Connie was afraid of the fountain. You can't really see the fountain in these photos, but it is pretty neat in person. Here's what we could get. . .notice Mookie is trying her hand at comedy and makes silly faces in most photos these days.
