So Saturday morning, at 8am, we headed over to Missouri. We all fit into two vehicles since my sister Molly couldn't get the day off work. We stopped first in St. Louis and spent the day visiting Grant's Farm. My mom's sister and her daughter, who live in St. Louis, joined us there as well. It's been years since I've been there, so it was really nice to visit again. It was both Andrew and Sophia's first visit, and they both really enjoyed it as well.

Then we had another hour or so to drive to my mom's hometown. That night, after dinner, we had fun swimming in the hotel pool until bedtime. Sophia absolutely loved it! She was really kicking her feet pretending to swim while I was holding her and kept wanting to jump in to me. So much fun!
The next morning we got up and ready, had breakfast at the hotel, and then drove over to my grandma's nursing home, where we had a room rented for the reunion. We planned a brunch, which was delicious, then of course took lots of pictures of everyone. Then played over at the really nice park across the street before we had to head back home.

While we were taking pictures, the kids were all kept occupied chasing around this bunny (which you might have noticed made an appearance in our family pic) and turtle that roamed around this small outdoor space.
We had a really great time. It was so nice to see (mostly) everyone again!
