Tummy Time

I love the drool spot on his arm.  

Disregard the stacks of folded clothes.

Have a happy Thursday.  We are!

Road Trip

The day after we returned from Uncle Brad and Aunt Hannah's, Mommy and Daddy packed me back in the car and took me all the way to Missouri.

Are we there yet?

Ahhh, we're finally here.  Time for a nap in Uncle Christopher's bed.

Every St.Clair baby needs to take a few baths in Grammy and Papa's trailer kitchen sink.

Here I am at PapaLo's funeral with Daddy's cousin, Greg, his wife Kari and their 9 day old baby boy, Kai.  I wish I could've met PapaLo.  Everyone said he was a wonderful, godly man. 

I got to meet Nanny Kay.  I liked her.  I think she liked me, too.

Time for some family photos.  

I love my family.

No one ever pays me any attention.  It's sad, really.

Aunt Melody works at Silver Dollar City in Branson.  We were able to go for free on her day off! 

Mommy, Daddy, Grammy and Aunt Melody after the Powder Keg roller coaster.  Looked scary.

This is a weird mansion we walked through.  Everything is all tilted and slanted wrong.  It made me dizzy.

I had a lot of fun seeing the shows.  Well, the truth is, I slept through most of the shows.

 Mommy and Daddy rode the rides.  One day, I'll ride with them.  But for now, I'm pretty content just hanging with Papa in my ride.

All tuckered out.

Evidence of good sleep.

It never seems like we have enough time to spend with our family.  Before we know it, we are headed home again...

Passing time chewing on my new toy.  Mommy bought it for me as a present for my 4 month birthday.  

Even though it's been a long day, I am still smiling.  I'm a good boy.  My mommy loves me.  And she says this is her favorite face I make.

Picnic Time

For the forth of July we went out to our friends' farm for a picnic.  It is such a pretty place and we enjoyed delicious food!

Playing Simon says?
Observing the peculiar pig behavior.

Happy family! 
Hope you had a relaxing and fun filled Independence Day!

Kid's Night

My ticket to a free kid's meal at Atlanta Bread Company on Tuesday nights:

He'll get it eventually.

Kids are handy, even at this age.

Happy Tuesday

To the Ocean

Last weekend, we took a family trip to Charleston to visit Uncle Brad and Aunt Hannah. 

Passing time in the car.....

When we arrived we found this guy, a family favorite:

Of course we had to eat, because that's what we do best.  So, we went to The Kickin' Chicken.

The newlyweds.


My grub.

On the way home, we stopped by a local deli and picked up some dessert.  It was all delectable. 

Brad had marble cheesecake with strawberries.

Eric got a red velvet cup cake.

Hannah and I shared a piece of New York style cheesecake with strawberry topping.  I'm drooling just thinking about it. 

Jonathan was too stuffed with chicken to order any dessert but, he sampled a few bites of ours.

Kyle had a fun time spending the night at Uncle Brad and Aunt Hannah's house.

On Saturday morning we hung out while Hannah made us breakfast - blueberry pancakes and bacon.  Delicious!

As soon as Uncle Brad got off work, we drove to the beach.

It was Kyle's first time in the ocean.

An exciting day at the beach is always finished with a good nap.
