We spent the 4th of July in St. Louis this year, as it has proven to be one of our favorite times of the year to visit. Thankfully, Mr. shares in our love for all things St. Louis around the 4th and I just love being a tourist in my hometown!

As for us girls, we had a delightful afternoon lunch and spent the day shopping. No kids, no worries, just my mom and my sister. Besides the heat, nothing could have been better! We completed both Amelia and Ellie's rooms and even managed to get some ideas for baby Wilson 2.0's nursery and checked out double strollers.
The drive home was as easy as can be. We stopped twice and rented Jackson movies from Red box and made it home before dark! Now, I'm just hoping this drive stays as nice and comfortable when we have two kids in the backseat:)

Yes, I'm super paranoid about Jackson getting lost in big crowds!
