traveling to st. louis to see more family

dsc00774

at the city museum in st. louis – if you’re ever there, go
if you’re ever traveling through or even
near there
consider extending (or delaying) you trip to stop and go
especially if you have kids

it is a monster playground filled with materials
recycled from the city that surrounds it
and it is
beautiful
and
enchanting
and
magical

i said multiple times ‘i wish i could live here!’
and while looking at their website i found out
you can!!
(uncle tobin and aunt shannon, you must now sell your house.)

and spending some quality time together
(though not nearly enough)

my heart is full
and my sense of inner peace is great
i can not put into words
what it meant to be with family this season
i love you all very much
and look forward to the next time
we can all be together again


and now, for a bit of entertainment
