Visit in St. Louis

This weekend we went up to St. Louis to meet up with Grandpa and Grandma (mommy's dad and stepmom). They were flying out of St. Louis on Monday just so they could make a pit stop there while on their way home from Indiana and see me! I had a lot of fun with them. We would make lots of paper airplanes and through them around the hotel room and fun stuff like that. You know how i just love airplanes! They even brought me a present! I got a new tractor and a new outfit! We went out to dinner and since I stayed awake the entire 2 1/2 hr drive to St. Louis, I feel asleep on the table. Kinda funny. Later we went back to the hotel and sat around the hotel lounge. I'd play with Grandpa and Grandma and even took walks with them around the hotel showing them all the stuff there! Grandpa took me to look at the pool, and the waterfall thingy that had in the atrium thing of the hotel. We even got to play in the elevator! I love those too. Grandpa took me in those a lot. He just couldn't say no to me =D. Later, they were really sleepy so they headed to bed and mommy and daddy took me swimming! Have I mentioned that I absolutely LOVE the water? I had so much fun swimming. Mommy doesn't think it'll be long before I could actually swim. I paddle my arms and kick my legs at the same time like your supposed to and everything! So who knows, maybe I'll be an awesome swimmer? So that was all for the first day. The next day we went down and meet Grandpa and Grandma in the breakfast area and ate. I was excited to see them again. I knocked on their door that morning, but they didn't answer. So we found them. I ate a pancake and some yogurt with some O.J. Grandpa took me for a few walks again too and up in the elevator for like a whole 20 minutes! I'd act like a crazy kid in there (the elevators were glass so i could see everything) and point out everything to Grandpa. I was just so excited and full of energy, even after 20 minutes of the same thing. After we all got dressed and ready to leave the hotel, we headed to the arch in Downtown St. Louis. Grandpa told me he'd take me in a big elevator! Needless to say, I was excited! So we made our way through the line and finally got the in tram elevator to go to the top of the arch! It wasn't exactly what I was expecting. It was very small in there, and we all had to sit on these little stool chair things. All 5 of us were in there and I was the only one short enough to actually be able to stand in there. That's how small. After about 4 minutes, we got out and walked up some steps, and bam, we were at the top. There were little windows to look out of and you could see everything! I got to see helicopters, boats, the river, cars and trucks, and even trains. Everything. It was cool! After we were done, we waited for the tram elevator to go back down. The time was coming for Grandpa and Grandma to head to the airport to catch their plane. We all walked back towards the parking area and played around on the way. There was a train going by too so I got a close up view of it! When we finally made it through the park and back to the parking garage, it was time to say good bye to them. I really didn't want to, and I whimpered and whined a bit, but overall, I handled it well. Mommy and Daddy decided to take me down to the river so I could look at the boats and water and the helicopter over there. I loved it! I even got to see a helicopter take off! Eventually, it was time for us to go and head home. I slept the whole way home this time. I had fun with my Grandpa and Grandma and can't wait to see them again! Mommy put up a bunch of pictures, but most of the ones with G&G were taken on their camera, or Daddy's film camera, so you'll have to wait for those. But there's a few mommy had.
