I ran into some problems with this post last week. I have been using Blogger to upload and store my photos online. Blogger holds the pictures in Picasa. Anyway, I found out that I am allowed only 1G of storage on Picasa. I'm not too surprised that I've met my limit as I've been using my blog for almost 2 years, and you all know how many pictures I like to put up! Thanks to my friend Shannon for telling me about flikr. I am now using them to host my photos online. I have used photobucket before, but what is nice about flikr is that I have only a monthly upload limit, as opposed to a total upload limit. So potentially, I should be able to use flikr forever and ever. Make sense? Good!

Back on the farm, we had a great Labor Day Weekend. Lee had a four-day weekend, so we headed on up to St. Louis that Friday.

We met up with our friends the Taylors and the Stouts and swapped babysitting at the temple.

Our family headed to the free St. Louis zoo afterward.

Yeah, Lee pretty much took an amazing photo of this animal. I should submit it to National Geographic!

I didn't know that someone took this photo of me. Too funny!

The WHOLE family!

We fueled up our van on the way home. I wish gas was only this much! If you look at the smaller sign it was only 2.19, which we thought was amazing as it is 2.39 here.

It was a very peaceful ride to Rolla...all kids sleeping.

On the way home we made our traditional stop at Little Caesar's and Aldi. We then headed to the Lykins for a game night. We never did play games, but we had a fun time talking and eating snacks. The weather was crazy that night. It was raining really hard and it was foggy; an un-peaceful ride home. I was very grateful we got home safely that night. It was a good, long day.

Over Labor Day weekend someone took pictures of the house where our friends Kelly and Chris lived. The housing company is remodeling it now. Gotta love the toilets outside!

That Saturday I took the girls to a birthday party at our friend's house, and later we went back again to their house so Lee could watch the BYU game. They made us a yummy dinner. The guys enjoyed the game and I had fun visiting with my friend.

Cal has been wanting pictures with Elden lately. It's very cute.

We honored Labor Day by laboring. We had a fun weekend, so we didn't mind the day off to prepare for the week.

I did Tae Bo that morning and Clark and two of his friends did it with me for a little bit.

Hope you all had a great Labor Day too!

Looks like a fun trip. I did not know blogger had a picture limit. I am shocked I haven't reached it. It is good I have started putting some pics on different websites. Some of your pics are cutting off a little. you might need to pic a different template in blogger or make sure you upload your pics a little smaller before you post. They look fine. I just thought I would let you know. I will look into flicker (spelling?)
