The Arch, Saint Louis, Missouri, MO - 30th May 2010

By: ekolter

Mom, Dad, and the Little Guy have had out-of-town friends and their children visiting since Friday evening and have been doing the local tourist things. On Saturday everyone went to the Saint Louis Zoo. Today we went to the Saint Louis Gateway Arch and saw the Mississippi River. Then tomorrow we'll have a little backyard barbecue with hamburgers before our friends have to drive back home.

Here are some pictures of Lightning Jones' journey to the the top of the Saint Louis Arch over Memorial Day weekend. Thanks to 'Aunt Brooke' and the boys for taking me along with them to the top! :D

Mom also add some pictures of me in the museum under the Arch. Also forgot to mention, but I got made a junior ranger by lady park ranger! Whoohoo! I have my own badge and a coloring book!

Saint Charles, MO, USA - 2nd June 2010

By: ekolter

Hello friends :)

I finally got to hit the pool yesterday! One of my parents friends' apartment complex just opened up. She invited Mom & the little guy to come and go swimming. We had to stop by Wal-mart to pick up some swim stuff for the little guy and grab some lunch first. Once at the pool, we played for 2 whole hours! The little guy loved it! Everyone was giggling at him. He worn himself out and we all then headed to a local bookstore to relax while he slept in his stroller for a bit. Didn't get home until well after dark. By that time everyone was too tired to upload pictures. They'll be coming soon.

Cahokia, Illinois, United States - 5th June 2010

By: ekolter

Jones tagged along to the International Horseradish Festival in Collinsville, Illinois, with his brother, Eight. Eight is a huge foodie and just had to go to his event. Jones thought it was just 'meh'.

Later as we were heading back home, we decided to stop by and check out Cahokia Mounds. It's a UNESCO site. Jones got a picture of Mound's Mound and toured the museum for the last hour. We didn't see the other attractions at the site, it was way too hot and muggy to be walking around outside for too long.

Africa-Museum, Netherlands - 23rd October 2010

By: EllenNL

Today I went to a museum with Ellen and a friend of her. We went to a museum about Africa. It was a little scared about all the kids around there! But Ellen stayed very close to me. Unfortunatly we couldn't make any pictures in the museum :(  So that's we Ellen made a photo of me while typing this update. We enjoyed the museum a lot!

With Love, Jones
