On Monday we visited the St. Louis Zoo…it was a perfectly beautiful day! Chickadee was very excited to wear her Dumbo the Elephant Mickey ears, but she was disappointed that the elephant trail was closed while we were there. We did get to see a lot of other animals, just not her favorites.
At Oktoberfest last weekend:
Today was a Very Exciting Day, because Chickadee had her braces removed!
Next week, she starts wearing a retainer!
On Tuesday, we went to the Missouri History Museum for the first time since before the beginning of the pandemic…almost three full years! We had a great time, and Chickadee loved the new “Coloring STL” exhibit where you’re actually encouraged and expected to color on the walls!
This week, we visited the Missouri Botanical for what seemed like the “first time in forever.” It was a bright, beautiful day full of vibrant colors (including Chickadee’s Majora’s Mask shirt!).
I’m going to be honest here…we haven’t been to our local public library since before the pandemic began. So today we went and got new library cards and checked out a few books…Chickadee was especially excited, because this is actually her first library card of her own!
I think the 2022-23 school year is off to a pretty good start!
One last fun summer activity before school starts on Monday!
Chickadee was very excited that the Lego “I am Groot” she pre-ordered got here sooner than she was expecting!
Isn’t he adorable?!?
I’m really happy that Lego made a set of one of Chickadee’s favorite characters!
Last night, while we waited for Moose to be done with band, Chickadee told me a funny story about an elephant visiting Disney World!
If you’re concerned, she was only sitting in the front with me while we waited…when we’re driving, she’s always buckled in the back seat, because I’ve always taken care safety very seriously!
