St. Louis Trip - Day 3 - Arch and Swimming

Saturday morning we woke up and got ready for the day.

Someone still looked a little sleepy

Our first adventure of the day was a trip to the Arch!

Waiting to go up

Riding up to the top! (we made sure she was sucking on her binky in case the pressure hurt her ears)

The trip up totally wore her out!

After a nap and some resting, we headed out for lunch with my family and met up with my brother before his big night. He took us to a yummy Mexican restaurant in one of the little districts. It was like a party down there. After lunch we headed back to the hotel and took Ava swimming! I wish pictures could accurately show just how much fun she had. I have never heard her laugh or giggle as much as she did while she was in the water!! She was like a fish! She kept putting her face in the water and then would laugh and giggle! I definitely am going to have to get this girl some swimming lessons! This is by far one of the most precious moments I've had as a mommy because it was so neat to witness Ava experiencing something that she loved SO much!

Checking herself out in the mirror before we headed down

I know she looks like she was crying here, but it was pure laughing!

She wanted her hands in the water while she was in her floaty! We were scared she was going to tip herself over so we just got her back out!

We will definitely be doing lots more swimming this summer!

    I hope Kate loves the water just as much...that's great that Ava is such a little water-baby!!

    Looks like a very fun trip!
