We hopped in the car and drove to St. Louis to spend a few days with my parents. Juan David had only been to their house once so far, and only to sleep. I want him to have memories like I do (and like David does) of visiting his grandparents.
It turned out to be a fun, inexpensive trip (thanks to my parents for abundantly feeding us). Mike felt rested and renewed after a long six weeks of job-hunting. The boys came back with another bonding experience under their belts. We made good use of our Six Flags season passes, including free parking even there. (FYI: Getting those season passes last October turned out to be one of our wisest purchases for two teenage boys!) In addition to all the fun, I also cherished the extra time with my mom and dad.
Here are some pics of our time there: (Unfortunately, I didn't get a single family pic or any of my parents, either. Oops.)
