California Visits Missouri: Part Two

After our day at the zoo, the crew was pretty wiped out so we decided to stay close to home over the next few days. 
Sue and Holly went to get pedicures one afternoon and Amelia got to tag along. I heard that she loved it and she picked the sweetest color for her nails.
The following morning, the gang woke up early to go fishing. Daddy took the kids and I was able to stay home and do some work. The kids caught quite a few fish and really enjoyed the morning with their cousins!
I love the above picture. She wasn't scared towards the end of the morning but the initial few fish, gave her a scream.
Wednesday we scheduled family pictures in the evening so we stayed around the area so when it came time to nap, we would be ready. Naps always make pictures a little better!
Thursday morning, we headed to the conservation center to do some hiking. 
Once we finished hiking, Chip and Sue headed out to spend some time with Andrew and Holly and we hung out by the pool (and the movie theatre).
Chip and Sue's flight was early on Saturday so they got a hotel in St. Louis for Friday night. We headed to St. Louis on Friday morning so we could spend the day and evening with them. We went to the Science Center. I love that so many things are free in St. Louis...this place is so education and full of all sorts of things.
We finished out the day with dinner--the kids did really good (other than a few moments) and they were sad to be saying goodbye.
This week flew by--we had quite a few moments of chaos but we enjoyed spending time together. I wish we were a little closer so we could see each other more than we do!
