This weekend Paul and I made a very quick trip to St. Louis to visit with family and check out the orchid show at the Missouri Botanical Garden
. My trip to the garden started with a lunch adventure with my mom, sister, and two little cousins. My little girl cousins are 3 and 6 and are at the age when every other thing out of their mouths is hilarious. I laughed so much with them that my eyes watered and my stomach hurt. It was awesome. I also bought them some cute little plates
for a Valentine's day present, and they liked them so much they ate their pizza dinner on them later that night! Coolest cousin status confirmed!
I went a little picture happy at the orchid show and wanted to share some of my favorite shots. Being around this many pretty things (combined with all the laughing) put me in such a great mood and had me feeling so refreshed. Which is the ultimate cure for mid-February blues. If you're in the St. Louis area, I highly recommend checking out the show!
