Since we left California on June 30th, Brett, Lily and I have had a great time with our families. We spent a week in Kansas before we came to St. Louis for 3 weeks. Then, we went back to Kansas for another 2 weeks. I think the Grandparents have loved having all this time with Lily. In Kansas, Lily got to play with some toys…
and celebrate her first 4th of July
In St. Louis, Lily got to spend time with Grandma,
play with Buddy,
go to the St. Louis Zoo,
watch the Sea Lion Show,
and try her first birthday cake (she is celebrating it three times before her actual birthday)
Back in Kansas, Lily got to have her second birthday cake at the family dinner the night before Kelly and Grant’s wedding. She shared the “birthday” with Grant and Ellie who also had birthdays in August.
The next day, Kelly and Grant were married. It was one of the most beautiful weddings I have ever been to. I love these two so much and I am so happy we could be there for their special day.
The last week we were in Kansas, we went to a farm,
and to wonderscope, an indoor play area,
and to the aquarium, which was awesome, but too dark for any good pictures. Lily also loved playing with her sweet cousins. Here she is with Ellie:
Now, we’re on our way to New York City for our new life on the East coast! It was truly a lovely summer!
