Weekend Update...

Saturday was a busy, but fun day. We are all still a little under the weather with coughs, runny noses, and congestion, but the beautiful weather helps us try to feel a little better! We headed to Mizzou for the Vet School Open House. There were a ton of things to do! We saw cows, police dogs, snakes, baby alligators, and the best part was the Budweiser Clydesdales! It was amazing to watch them all get hitched together and then take off down the road for the parade. They were huge and so so pretty! We also saw a Purina Wonderdog show. After that we headed home for lunch and a nap and then met up with some of Mike's coworkers and their girlfriends/wives to go to the winery. We couldn't find a babysitter, so Evan came with us...turns out a beautiful Saturday in April with all the college kids back from spring break equals a busy and packed winery. So we decided to head to Forge and Vine and sat on their balcony/patio and had some great wine and appetizers. Evan was happy, we were happy to see some great friends and catch up.

Sunday we ran a couple of errands, picked up Evan's 1st birthday invitations, and did some house work. Mike cut the front yard Friday and cut the back today...turns out the back yard in one particular section was still really muddy from some recent rain. The mower got stuck....and couldn't get out! Mike tried tying rope onto it and pulling...that didn't work, finally he lifted the back end out and got it to where he could reverse it. Thankfully it is now in our garage and not stuck in the backyard mud! ha! Hope you had a great weekend! Cards home opener tomorrow in St. Louis! woohoo! Wish I was going! :) Also hoping our little truck loving boy is feeling better soon!
