Home Sweet Home...

Is it really August 1st? 
I still can't believe how fast this summer is flying by. We have been a family on the go
and
this time last week we were back in Illinois for a whirlwind visit. 

We did spend some time in St. Louis at my sister's,  A.K.A. the mad crafter,  house
 and had a wonderful time just hanging out. Yes, she did have a craft for the kids to do! She always does and probably always will. This trip it was friendship bracelets...


 Check out her blog if you're looking for a cool craft for your kiddos to do.

 There is never enough time to see everyone we would like when we go "home."  My team always needs a little down time wherever we are so fitting everything in just isn't possible! We did get to most of our restaurants although we didn't make it to Crown Candy to test it out for ourselves. Hopefully we can check it off our list next time we're in town along with the people we didn't get a chance to see.

I won't bore you with a ton of pics but here are a few from our trip. And if you're visiting in the St. Louis, Mo/Edwardsville, IL area I highly suggest you try out our favorite places!
The new sea lion exhibit at the St. Louis Zoo. BTW the admission is ZERO dollars and it's one of the best zoo's around!


Cutest pic of the kids with my sister at The Boathouse watching the dog races. 
It's the perfect place to unwind after visiting the St. Louis Zoo.


Sweetest pic of Jack and Max walking their GiGi out of Peel restaurant.


Ry finally sinking her teeth into Cleveland-Heath's deviled eggs!

Hope some of you had a chance to go "home" this summer break...

  2. UM have you NEVER been to Crown Candy? I'm not a fan of the food (everyone likes their BLT but I don't eat pig) ............But their Ice Cream is to DIE for. I get the caramel sundae and it is as big as my head but since I only eat it once a year (if even that) I figure it is totally ok. Love the STL and always will. So glad they have kept it free.
    This post makes me a little home sick. We haven't made it back yet this year and as you know the clock is ticking on summer :(

  3. Can you believe we've never been to crown candy Karen?!!!! I promised the kids we would go this time but I just couldn't make it happen. Their portions look huge but wanted to go for the desserts! I'll keep it on my list and hopefully check it off one day :)
