|just another picture of a cute baby to start a long blog post...|
one of the things i love about stl is that there are so many fun AND free activities to participate in. this past week there was plenty of events going on. here's a little recap of my week:
so i was pretty pumped to see the carousel, but it turns out it was closed. not only was it closed, but it was inside! i had it in my little head that this was an outdoor carousel which would pretty much be 1000 times cooler.
|umm, have you every looked inside a dark building that has an unused carousel just idly sitting there? creepy. very. creepy. |
conclusion: carousels are best enjoyed when open & outside.
|we ate some ice cream (because you have to in july ~ it's national ice cream month, therefore it's a requirement) & sat on these cozy apple seats. a lovely evening with lovely ladies.|
|on thursday, we had to take advantage of 7/11 & slurped up some free slurpees.|
|that evening we listened to a free erin bode concert while sipping on some of the most delicious coffee & enjoying the fellowship of some great folks.|
|another wonderful evening with wonderful friends. thankful the Lord allows us these little undeserved blessings. He is good ~ all the time!|
|the next day we participated in a free event, but it was not chick-fil-a's cow appreciation day. =( this is the first year i have not dressed up like a cow since i first discovered cow day. oh well. we went to grab some free seats at the muny!|
|this week's show was 'south pacific.' i have a very soft spot in my heart for all things rogers & hammerstein. thanks grandpa & grandma. <3|
|we took the wait time before the show to capture mk's photo a day challenge. this day - bad habit!|
|south pacific was pretty good. i loved all the wardrobe choices. next week is les miz, which i have tickets for. i'm so excited!|
|yesterday a group of girls from church got together to make a meal for a family at our church. thanks sarah for coordinating everything & being our faithful 'captain.' ;)|
|and one more picture! when the older siblings saw me snapping some pics of their baby sister they had to join the party.|
and BOOM! you just made it through one extremely long & picture heavy blog post. thanks for being a dedicated reader. =) and thanks to stl for being a great city & offering your dwellers free events.
