Home from Vacation

We are home from vacation, we got home late night sunday. I just haven't had a chance to sit down and blog yet!
It was all in all a good vacation.
Friday~We got into St Louis at bedtime, so we didn't do anything.
Saturday~We woke up and started breakfast and Jace ended up on the toilet severly constipated crying, and fidgety. We tried a warm bath and tons of other things. Finally after an hour Brian was calling the U of I doc and Jace was finally able to go to the bathroom. So we got a bit of a late start. We went to the zoo, and to a dino exhibit. The penguin exhibit was the best ever and the kids absolutely loved it. We went to Hard Rock Cafe for lunch at Union Station. we spent the evening at the largest mall in St Louis, Mills. The kids had alot of fun there!
Sunday~We woke up and this time had a horrible constipated Ben. We were able to fix it much easier than usual but knew it would become an issue again at some point that day. We spent the morning at the arch and the riverfront. We went to the top and spent quite a bit of time looking out the windows. Ari loved yelling car everytime she saw a vehicle! Emily and Jace thought it was super cool! We met up with some VERY good friends of mine at the Butterfly House. The house was amazing and it was so much fun to have all the butterflies flying free like that. Emily loved it! Halfway thru the butterfly house Ben started shaking. He and I went out to the van and he was finally able to finish what he had started earlier in the day. He was shaking and just pouring sweat. After that he was exhausted, so we rode an antique original carousel and then headed home. We drove home late sunday and got here well after bedtime.

Now we are home and everyone is back in school. Ari started a toddler gymnastics class today, and loved it! It will be good for her to be around other kids her age and to work some on her flexibility and such.
I've been working on my quilt some more. I just finished piecing it together. Next comes the 2 borders and then begins the fun. Quilting it all! It's a king sized quilt, in the Yellow Brick Road pattern. Bri and I picked out the materials and I love it!
Here are a few pictures of the quilt. i will get pictures up in the next few days from our trip!
