march can't get here fast enough!

To say we are looking forward to March is an understatement. We are so excited to meet Baby K in March! We feel so blessed and are thanking God for each and every day He gives us with this little one!

St. Louis

We just got back from a weekend in St. Louis. It was so much fun traveling with Brian and Rachel. We laughed so hard! We stayed the first two night with Tyler's grandparents in Greenville, IL and then two nights in downtown St. Louis. It was quite a trip, beginning with 7 am mornings awake because we were in the basement at Tyler's grandparents and you could hear every move that was made. It is funny to laugh about now that we are fully rested. We went to a cardinals game at 1 p.m. in the 94 degree weather, but Praise the Lord, we were in the shade and right beside the air conditioned red bird club that we could go into at anytime!! We lost the game in the 12th inning, so that wasn't very much fun, but it was still a great day with great seats. We ate the spaghetti factory that night...which was good and turned in early for our expected early alarm clock...aka the shower upstairs. On Friday, we headed in to St. Louis to meet up with our friends at Pappy's BBQ. Everyone really enjoyed it. Then we headed over to the brewery. I was so excited to see the horses...they were by far my favorite part. Friday night was the rehearsal and dinner at Studio 44, where we had some great food. Saturday was a nice relaxing day and then a fun wedding/reception. We had such a great time catching up with good friends, trying new foods, and celebrating with our good friends, Matt an Lindsey Lovelady! Here are some pictures of the weekend!

4th of July

This year we spend 4th of July with lunch and a swimming party at my brother's house! We had such a good time and had great food...including the pasta salad that Patti's uncle made. It was so yummy! We finished the day by spending time with Tyler's family for dinner and games. Days like this remind us of how blessed we are! Here are some pictures from the day!

Kelly Family Reunion

What a weekend! Combine 30 Kellys, a river, and good food and you will get a lot of fun. We got the chance to hang out not only with the cousins we see routinely, but also some from out of town that we see about every 10 years. Our reunion was located up on my uncle Tim's land, called Camp Kelly. We spent a lot of time on the river, eating, and telling stories of generations. It was a great weekend and such a good time of catching up! Here are some pictures from the weekend.
