Quick STL trip

Friday, I decided to take both boys to St. Louis for a quick day trip. It was my Grandma Fergy's birthday (or as Evan likes to say, Great Grandma Turkey!) and my dad's birthday was Sunday, so it was nice to be able to see everyone! We had fun in the gorgeous weather playing, visiting the Transportation Museum, and unfortunately watching Mizzou lose the first round of the tourney.

Also, on Friday, when I was driving there, we found out that Mike's Grandma Harmon passed away. She was 96 and lived a good, long life, it doesn't make it any easier that she is gone, but knowing that she is with her husband and Jesus makes it a little more bearable. We will travel this week to go to Iowa for the funeral and visitation. I'm glad that Alex got to meet his Great Grandma Harmon this past January when we went to visit too.

Friday was a jam packed 6 hours of fun + 4 hours of driving...but it was totally worth it :)

 Evan kept saying "I am a robot. I am a robot"...with robot arm movements and all! ha!

 Happy Birthday Dad!!!

Driving back to Columbia, saw this cross in the in peace Grandma Harmon. We'll miss you...

Wet, sloppy ground require rubber boots or snake boots (if you hunt in the south). true religion jeans These are the tallest boots you'll find. Be sure your ankles fit snugly, so the boots won't pull off in the mud; and you'll want side cinches or buckles at the top to eliminate a noisy, sloppy fit when you walk--and to help seal out moisture. A removable foot bed is a plus, babyliss pro hair dryer as rubber boots become damp and don't dry out easily overnight unless you use boot dryers. Be sure to check the outer sole for cleats or lugs--a necessity for good traction in the mud. Rubber boots are not comfortable if you're going to be doing extensive walking on uneven ground , Suzuki Fairings as they lack adequate support and cushioning needed for longer treks.
