Mimi's visit!

We had my mom up last weekend for a visit and had a blast.  The weather was lovely and we had lots of fun doing some outdoor fally kinds of things.  So let the pictures begin :)

We asked SK what she would like to do for dinner on Thursday night (Mimi's first night here) and she requested the "Horsey park" and a picnic.  We had a fun windy time eating our picnic and taking a stroll around the pond and seeing the horses.

Friday we didn't get any pictures, but had fun making homemade pizzas for dinner and Michael and I going out later that night to the Sandra McCracken concert.  Then, Sat. morning we got up and headed out to Soulard Market (as pictured above and below).  We got some yummy veggies and fruits!

 Then after the market, we headed to Eckert's farm for apple picking and pumpkins.  SK showed Mimi how to pick a good apple (since it was Mimi's first time to go apple pickin').

Daddy and SK were on a hunt for one to eat (this is after eating about 4 apples herself :))
**And later that night we cooked up some of those yummy veggies from the market and made an apple pie from our freshly picked apples.  Yum!

Then it was on to the pumpkin patch.  SK was almost more interested in playing in the dirt then actually picing a pumpkin, but she had a blast.

SK's idea to take a photo moment :)

SK's choice for a pumpkin :)  Just her size!

 On Sunday after church, we headed to St. Charles (about 15-20 minutes away) for lunch and to show Mimi what a fun little town it is.  We had lunch at the great little restaurant where there was outdoor seating and even a little waterfall/pond thing to entertain children :)
And one last picture Monday morning before SK headed to school and Mimi had to go back to Alabama.
We had a fun weekend, Mimi!
