Look how huge baby Marcus is at one week of age! He was over 9 lbs at birth even though he was born a week early! My family has huge babies!
Here's where Ruth (my twin), Breno (her husband) and baby Marcus live. What a beautiful home! They live on the top floor.
Not only are there tons are parks in Missouri, but many of them are absolutely huge and amazing! This one is a few minutes car ride from their house and is one of the biggest in the country.
I get ringlets in my hair when I'm in humid places.
Joshua had a lot of fun visiting his new cousin. He of course made a big mess eating food.
And he learned how to pose for a camera.
He also at his first whole apple. He didn't mind the outside peel at all.
My sister's neighborhood is amazingly beautiful. Here's the view of her street. Look at all those awesome trees!
Isn't the moss awesome!
We went to a park a few minutes walk from their house a couple times a day since they didn't have a backyard. Here's what we had to look at on the way to the park. Poor us!
Here's a view of the park from the entrance of it.
And here's a close up of the pond at the park.
Although St. Louise is beautiful, it sure is hot and humid! For those of you who know me well, you know I was NOT enjoying those climate characteristics while I was there! It was great to be able to be there for my sister and her family during this eventful time in their lives.
