We flew out of St. Louis on Wednesday night. The kids did great on the plane. Ryan slept the entire flight. Drew and Kayley were so excited to see their cousins that they didn't sleep at all on the flight, but kept themselves entertained so we can't complain.
Chris and Andy went golfing on Thursday. Macie had school so Jenny and I took Drew, Kayley, Noah and Ryan to the zoo. The weather was beautiful and we had a great time at the zoo. When the boys got home from golfing and Macie came home from school, the kids got in the pool. It was pretty obvious who the kids from the Midwest were. Drew and Kayley loved it, but Macie and Noah were pretty cold!
Chris and Andy took the older kids golfing on Friday while Jenny and I took Ryan to a park.
With the exception of a little accident involving Kayley getting hit in the head with a golf club, the kids had a great time at the driving range and golf course. When they got home from golf, the kids did a little art project and then we headed out for dinner.
We had a full day on Saturday. We started out with Noah's soccer game. That kid is good! I think he scored every goal for his team while he was in the game. He was one of the only ones that knew what to do and had the coordination to do it!
After soccer, we headed to the South Texas MAiZE. The kids had a great time and were on the go the entire time we were there.

|Ready to trick or treat in the maze|
|Maybe not everyone is ready|
The kids wanted to do more trick or treating so they got back into their costumes Saturday night and went trick or treating at the house. They had fun "practicing" for the real thing this Thursday!
We had a great time and can't wait to go back! As the weather has turned here in Illinois, it was so nice to get back into the 70s for a few days! Thank you Chris, Jenny, Macie and Noah!
