Oh What a Day!!

What a fabulous holiday weekend we have had here at the Miller House!! I can actually say for the first time, in a REALLY long time, I could actually handle Josh's hours! I felt like I was married to a banker this weekend! He was off Friday and off early on Saturday, Sunday, AND Monday!! A big change from his 14 hour days, but it's not something I can get used to, as he was just using up some vacation :)

Anyhow, we spent the day Friday playing tourist in the grand city of St. Louis. You know how it is, you live in a city, yet you rarely visit the main attractions that people specifically come to see when they are visiting from out of town. So, after morning naps, we headed to the Loop for lunch at the famous Fitz's Restaurant. Yum-O! Malakai and Leila got to see how root beer was made, and we all enjoyed a wonderful lunch of greasy burgers, french fries, onion rings, and last but not least, Root beer!!

After lunch, we headed to Forest Park to let the kids burn off some energy. On our way home, we hit yet another, park :)

When we got home, it was time for playing outside and cocktails for mommy and daddy!

This video is awesome!! Just listen to Malakai scolding him :)

Since I'm the ONLY one who ever picks up a camera around this place, I decided to take a snapshot of myself :) I don't want my kids to think "Where was Mommy?" since there are all sorts of pictures of them with Josh, and NONE with me ;)


Best thing since I last blogged: I spent my $45 off $100 coupon that I won at Old Navy! That was very exciting!! I also have had a five day weekend which I have enjoyed immensely!!

Worst thing since I last blogged: Getting ready for a garage sale is NEVER fun!!
