playing catch up

The past month has either been really busy or not busy at all.  I figured i'd just post a bunch of pictures from lately and keep it all in one post.

this day had perfect weather, high of 75 and Ziva was loving it.  

hiding from the vacuum cleaner or just a new napping spot?  

one weekend at the end of July we decided to take advantage of the super nice weather and drive 45 minutes to the Lewis and Clark trail.  

Missouri River

I believe this was before i got attacked by a butterfly and started crying from laughing and embarrassment.
i'm an easy crier.
and afraid of butterflies.

I started taking dance again!  Well actually i started taking a class back in June through one of the colleges.  It was just an 8 week summer class.  
Jeremy works with someone who told me about this other studio.  They offer all kinds of different classes for all levels. So far i've taken Zumba, Pop Ballet, Contemporary, a Flexibility class and a Tap class.
Ok, i only took tap was a little (a lot) too advanced for me.  Tap was never really my strong point anyway.  I've been wanting to take a pointe class too, but i'm a little nervous, it's been a long time.  They will also be offering a new Cardio Barre next week so i may join that one too. 

we made a blueberry pie!!

a small backyard bouquet...everything from my yard

My friend, Ashley, was driving through St. Louis ( from California to Georgia!) and stopped and stayed for a couple nights.  It was really nice to catch up, i haven't seen her in about 5 years (she moved out to CA 5 years ago and is making the move back home to GA) We grew up together and even went to Italy together after high school.  We went up in the Arch at night (my first time at night) and it was really cool!  There was a Cardinals baseball game going on so Busch stadium is all lit up to the left. 

The same time Ashley was here Jeremy's sister and her four kids came to visit.  We had a full house and a busy weekend!  Me and Ashley went to the Art Museum in Forest Park and met up with Jeremy, Lisa, and the kids at the zoo when they got in to town.  When we got back home we ordered pizza, played with Ziva (she loooooved those many new people to lick. She was such a good dog!) the kids watched a movie and we made some peach cobbler with some Georgia peaches that Lisa brought up.  The next morning Ashley left and the rest of us went to the Science Museum.  Monday we did the City Museum and Tuesday we saw the Arch before Lisa and the kids left. 
Uncle Jeremy!

The last week in August we'll be making a trip down to Georgia to visit our families.  It will have been a whole year since we've been home.  That's a long time! Too long.  We've got a few things going on in September...Lindsey is coming to visit!  I'm looking forward to fall this year.  Being in the house and neighborhood seeing all the trees change. And the holidays!  We'll be able to go home for Christmas this year for the first time since moving to St. Louis.  I'm pretty excited about that!  

So that's pretty much all that's been going on the past few weeks.
