Pictures Galore!

Joe bought a card reader for his laptop so I could get all the pictures off my camera...which means I can now post some pictures from our vacation! So be prepared for a lot of pictures in this post - and I was trying to be very selective with how many pictures I actually posted, as I'm sure you can imagine I took quite a few!

Kayla and Andrew at the Science Museum in Saint Louis (Kayla is only 12 days older than Andrew)


Working on puzzles


Kayla loved the Discovery Room they had for kids. She especially liked playing inside the tee pee. She held this up and said, "chicken!"


They had all different "stations" throughout this room that kids could explore.


Back at Andrew's house for the BBQ Becky had for everyone.


I'm sure I don't have to tell you all how hard it was to get one group shot with everyone looking the same direction and smiling at the same time! Didn't happen...but this is the group we met from the Trisomy 21 message board.


On our night stay in Columbus Kayla fell out of the queen-size bed at 330 that morning. Last time she fell out of bed was well over a year ago; not sure why she fell out as she had all that room in the bed! She ended up with a scrape underneath her eye (rug burn maybe?) This was the next morning as we were leaving...it actually doesn't look to bad here, but it got worse the next day when it started to scab over.



Meeting my MIL's online friend Kris


A picture of the graduate getting sprayed when she arrived back home. Kayla didn't quite know what to think about all of that (notice her clinging to Joe's neck?)


My sister - the graduate!


A family picture as we were just hanging around.


My little poser! See how under the eye looks worse in this picture? It's just about gone now.


We're off to Baltimore today to meet 2 other families (that I also "know" from the same Trisomy 21 message board). We're going to Port Discovery so it should be another fun get-together!

I'm so glad you posted pictures! And I am way jealous that you got to meet so many online friends. Your vacation sounds wonderful (aside from the owie eye). Hope it continues and you can NEVER post too many pics!

Kimberly said...

Wonderful pictures! Kayla's poor eye, Landen had a fall like that at daycare (obviously not off of a bed lol) but he got scraped up prtty good, also he took a nose dive off of my sisters cement stairs outside and landed on his face.
I love her expression in the picture where you gus are spraying your sister with that silly string (?)

Thank you Joe for buying a card reader so we could get our Kayla fix!! It took awhile to download but it was so worth it ;o) Sounds like things are going very well and how nice you are meeting so many new friends!

Barb said...

There's no such thing as too many photos in a post, Michelle. I swear. LOL

I love all these photos but it just touched my heart, the way Kayla's holding her daddy for dear life with all that silly string flying around. Precious.

You're all having such a wonderful time. I'm so glad.

Beck said...

My daughter did THE SAME THING - she fell out of bed on a trip and had this big shiner for the rest of our vacation! It must be the excitement of sleeping in a hotel or something...:)
Cute pictures, as always!

Linda said...

What fun pictures Michelle. I love the one of the three of you together.
Stay safe (no more falling out of bed Kayla) and have a great time.

Mom/Mil/GM said...

Great pictures!! Looks like Kayla is having a good time. Poor baby falling out of bed like that :-(

Nisa said...

I think Kayla looks so cute with that little rug burn under her eye... I mean I'm glad it'a almost gone and all but those pics were too cute. I love all the pics. The one with Kelly and all the silly string is hilarious! Can't wait to see more.

Looks like you all are having a good time. Poor Kayla with the scrape under her eye, but doesn't she just look adorable in that last little "I know I'm cute" pose. :) That's also a great picture of the 3 of you. Hope the rest of your vacation is fun!

Great pics!! Hope the eye heals soon! That is what scares me about moving Lauren out of the crib- well, that and destroying her room! She just turned 3 though so we're about due for a big girl bed!
