St. Louis Visit

Sad that this picture is blurry.... but this is the only picture I got of Briggs Maynor. Susan, Eric and I got to take Briggs, Nathan and Naomi to the Science Center on Friday to the Discovery room. The kids had a blast. There was a huge Dinasour that Nathan was in awe over.
Our future doctor and nurse.
This was a highlight for her b/c i never let her touch our computer.
Out of all the exciting work stations you of course Nathan spent the majority of his time right here at the train table... with trains he plays with every day at home!

We got the opportunity to visit St. Louis a couple of weekends ago so Eric could take a weekend class at Covenant Seminary. It was a fun and encouraging weekend. As you can see, i only pulled out my camera one day. I missed taking photo's of my friend Susan and her oldest son Max who we stayed with 2 nights. Thanks Susan for loving us, feeding us and even clothing Nathan and sharing your heart and love for our Lord with us. Susan even let me go to class with Eric one night!

We got to visit with the Porters over lunch and meet their sweet new baby boy and play with their cute little Ella. The Gordon's housed us one night along with their five children and fed us a yummy dinner and breakfast(Maria, Eric wants me to get your recipe for the Lasagna and the baked oatmeal!) We got to see our friends the Pennylegions and all of sweet friends at Crossroads for church on Sunday. Surprisingly, Nathan even went in the nursery! It made me proud since i had a hand in a lot of the groundwork of the nursery there.

The plane ride was a major highlight of Nathan's short life....Naomi on the other hand would of probably appreciated if i drugged her with Benadryl. Unfortunately, she was definately " that kid" on the plane. But, we made it and it was way better than 12 hrs. in a car!

We got to see a little snow... which was so fun for Nathan and Eric and I were even able to swing by Il Vicino for our favorite pizza. Too bad we couldn't find any Frozen Custard anywhere. We were supposed to eat dinner with the Woita's, Vander Maas' and Pecks, but sadly Audrey came down with some flu-like symptoms.

We have such sweet memories of our time in St. Louis....and are so thankful for all the people who loved on us and helped us to grow!
