We spent part of our spring break in St. Louis. Clay’s home office is there so we dropped him off to work and we went to have fun.
Clay’s office is located just down the street from Busch Stadium, home of the St. Louis Cardinals.It is a beautiful office building with a fabulous view.It takes so little to impress us and even less to entertain us.My older two hadn’t been to the Science Center for many years, so that’s where we went. The first stop was to master the flight simulators.This is outside the planetarium. I was all about the selfies this trip.A sign said, “Do not feed or climb on dinosaurs.” So, we just ran from them and poked them with large sticks.Technically, this is not climbing, it’s planking, captaining, and riding, so…
My kids built the arch. Yep, they did. My heart just about burst watching the four of them together. Because, how many more of these moments do I really have left? My guess is, not many. Ellen is already out on her own and Seth is graduating this year. They are spreading their wings faster than I can catch them by the tail feathers and make them sit down and be a BABY! I’m having a major Mom Moment right now. I’m so proud of these four ridiculous human beings. They are my reason for doing just about everything I do.
I’m amazed that I get to be their mom. I hope I make them as proud as they make me. I hope they love their children even more than I love them. I know I’m going to love their children a ridiculous amount, so that may not be possible. We ended the day by finding a very hip coffee shop that also made gellato in an old part of the city. I love visiting St. Louis with my kids, we are such a rag-tag bunch of Kansans, but dad-gum we’re happy!
