Lewis and Clark days

We went to St. Charles for Lewis and Clark days
The boys LOVED it.
The duel

The boys and me
The reenactment includes a grand parade, military encampment, fife and drum corps muster, musket and cannon demonstrations, a skillet throw, and period music, food and wares. Each day begins with the raising of colors and the day ends with retreat and the lowering of colors. It was so much fun. We enjoyed walking around the historic district of St. Charles after they lowered the flags.

An Anniversary with my Best friend

Wine Tasting at Hermannhoff Winery, with the most amazing weather possible. It was such a great time.

Three Little Monkeys

Speak no evil, hear no evil, see no evil
Philippians 4:8
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.
My three little monkey's
When not jumping on the bed, we can be found at a local park playing, here I asked them to have a seat on this pretty rock to get there pic.
We had just been looking at encyclopedia that morning with Elijah, where there was a statue of the famous "See no Evil, hear no evil, speak no evil" Which recalling from my World Religion's class derived from China, In Confucius teachings.
Elijah had the idea of doing this for the pic. He is such a fun little boy to be around.
Note: My Monkey's are inverted
