night(s) at the museum.

over the past couple of days, i've been to several very wonderful st. louis spots. i'm sorry to say that i'm not going to divide them into different posts, but rather just do one big photo dump. most of these were taken with my dslr, but 5 were taken on my iphone. make it game & see if you figure it which ones! it won't be too hard of a challenge. =)
i've never been to the downtown st. louis library....well, i went to a harry & the potters concerts on the outside steps, but i don't know if that counts. anyway, it was gorgeous! speaking of harry potter, the magic of this library made me feel like i was a hogwarts student, gryffindor of course. 
a good red door will always catch my eye. 
on saturday, we had an all day birthday excursion for jaclyne which sent us all over st. louis!
first up was brunch at half & half.
world's largest chess piece = photo op

i also used this an opportunity to take some portraits of the girls for my photography challenge. those will be posted on the blog later, but here are some other fun shots from the day.

this is their "i'm in a really cool band" pose
cathedral basilica
kind of scary creepy, right?
birthday girl!
tried a pretzel ice cream cone & it was everything i hoped it would be (that would be delish).
<another mini photo shoot>

what a fun (AND exhausting) birthday day! next week we're doing it all again in honor of danielle's big day.

my head is an animal.

 do i really need an excuse to post more pictures of cute children? their little personalities are the cutest, not to mention that they are (usually) very willing models.

st. paddy's day!

happy birthday to this sweetie! when your birthday is on st. patrick's day, you have a cardinals' party. =)

a fashionable game of croquet & kites.

nieces and nephews are so much fun. attempting to capture their precious little faces is one of my favorite things to do.

notice the tongue in every picture. =)
not only was it croquet playin' weather, but it was also kite flyin' weather!
my nephew had a kite too, but his had a hole in it. at least nel's was flying strong!

and this is from last week when i came home from work to see my nephew keeping a protective hand on his lightsaber. how precious!
