Life lately!

Two updates in less than a year- should be a record for me!

It's been a busy few weeks at the Metzger house! We have had a whirlwind of birthday parties, a few vacation days, and home repair projects to work on. But, the good news is that it has been a great opportunity to meet new people and reconnect with some that we haven't seen in a while.

A few weeks ago, Mick and I decided to take Friday off and try something new- to be a "tourist" in our own city. I'd like to think that there is a lot of fun things to do in St. Louis, and that we just don't take advantage of them. So I'm trying to do that more this summer.

So, we decided to borrow a tandem bike, and go ride on the Katy trail. Now, the Katy trail is super long- runs all the way from Kansas City to outside of St. Louis, so needless to say we rode a very short part of the Trail. Having never beeen on a tandem bike, I didn't know how it was going to go. Hoever, I'm happy to say that it was surprisingly easy once we got the hang of it. Plus, our neighbors enjoyed the circus show of us trying to learn how to ride it in the driveway. #yourewelcome

Anyway, here's a few pictures from that trip. We started in Defiance, MO and rode to Augusta and back- about 7 miles each way!

Heading off on the bike! Next time, we'll have matching outfits...

A scenic place for a picture!

Seriously, who knew that was in Missouri?

Augusta has more picturesque old houses and barns to take pictures in front of!

Wine at Montelle- check out that view!

Spending a day with my favorite!

Mick trying to look manly while drinking peach wine...not possible...
That weekend, the weather was gorgeous, so we spent most of our time outside. Check out my new lawn boy- is he not the cutest?!

Unfortunately, after spending so much time outside, we woke up on Monday moring to some pretty terrible allergies. Poor sweet guy...

This is my sweet boy later on that week. Needless to say, a visit to the doctor was in order!
The next weekend, we got to celebrate a very special first birthday- Baby Keegan! Or, as Noah calls him, "Baby Teegan". We are so lucky to have this little guy as a part of our family, and of course, as his Godmother, I feel especially blessed. I can't WAIT to see all of the trouble and craziness he and Noah will be once Keegan gets old enough to chase around after his cousins.

Not so sure of the cake...
NVM- Loving the cake!

Me and Baby Teegan!

The proud parents!

On Sunday, Savannah and Meemaw got to attend the special Fairy Tale Tea at the Magic House. Savannah had a great time meeting Cinderella and Prince Charming (though she liked Cinderella better), eating cookies and making her own crown.

We love Meemaw!
With her crown and her wand!

And finally, one more video of Noah. He's in the stage of doing everything himself, so everything we do for him is met with "No, let me!!" This video is a perfect example of that!

And finally, one more picture of these crazies. Life may not always be neat, or easy, but it sure is fun!
