Avery helped decorate Angry Birds cupcakes for his school party:

A Visit from Mark, Christy and Holly

 My college buddies came to St. Louis for the weekend! We had so much fun! We enjoyed swimming at Indian Hills Swim Club, taking the kids to Grant's Farm, eating BBQ at Salt & Smoke, and boozing it up at Urban Chestnut, Fuzzy's Tacos ("the drinking joint with a taco problem") and Affton Cafe.
