Meet the Parents

My birthday will be over soon, but it's cool.  I feel like I've been celebrating all week.  My loving parents came to visit from Idaho and we've spent the week showing them the awesomeness that is St. Louis.  On Day 1 we went to the Botanical Gardens.


The kids hit the sprinklers.


Dad figured that was the best time to take a nap.


Later that afternoon, Dad taught the kids how to hit a whiffle ball. 
Can you handle this photo opp?  Come on!

Happy happy birthday! If I were rich I would buy you the fanciest tea set money could buy and a proper tea party to go with it!
p.s. Are those Dave Chihoully glass sculptures in the pond?

The Botanical Garden website says they're by Dale Chihuly. Look at you and your cultured self. Miss you!
