Reason #463 I heart STL

Besides random George sightings, I love our new neighborhood for lots of other reasons. Saturday morning we woke up to beautiful weather and nothing on the planner. How great is that? We walked a few blocks to the Missouri Botanical Gardens.

Not surprising, we ran into friends. Whether we're at the zoo, Card's game or just at the mall, we always seem to see people we know. St. Louis is the smallest big city. We love it. I digress.

In the entry way we saw our friends/neighbors/bandmates, the Burggraafs. Within about ten minutes, we ran into the Higgins. Eliot's fun-o-meter was off the charts. That's right, fun-o-meter. I said it. And I'm not even going to delete it.

You can't really tell from the pics that we were at a Botanical Garden because we spend the majority of our time in the children's section. We're go back again soon though and pose E in front of lots of pretty flowers if that's what you're looking for.

This is how E sat for close to ten minutes. He was zapped but he held onto that eggplant.
