St. Louis

I know everyone wants the details on our weekend in St. Louis, but I need to gather a few things I wrote down and really set aside some time to write about the actual conference. Blair and I are glad that we attended, I think it was well worth it. But here is a little about the rest of our weekend.

Blair and I headed out to St. Louis early Friday morning while Hunter stayed with his Gammy and aunts and cousins all weekend! We only THOUGHT Louisiana was hot... oh my! It was a smooth 105 degrees when we got there, and I'm pretty sure they set a new record high in St. Louis yesterday. Blair saw Pappy's BBQ restaurant on Man vs. Food, so we decided to check it out after checking into the hotel. There was a small line outside, but the guy selling water told me we had about a 35 minute wait. Little did we know, the line went all the way inside the hall of the restaurant, then also curved into the restaurant. I would say we waited about 45-55 minutes. Was it worth it? Yes! It was good, very good. I'm just not sure I would do it again in blistering hot weather! We then made our way over to the Budweiser factory for a tour and ended the night with some of our LA friends at the Cardinals game. Just sitting in the stands, after the sun went down, we were still sweating buckshots! We called it a night a little early since we had been up since 4:30 and we had a long day ahead on Saturday.

After the conference on Saturday, Blair and I caught a movie in our hotel and then headed to dinner with Sophia's Grace and her wonderful parents! I have always followed their blog and loved watching her progress, so we were delighted to be able to meet them! Sharing stories of our children and the parallel roads that we have been through is just so nice to be able to do in person with another family. And Ms. Sophie was a doll at the restaurant. Hearing her speak SO well just warms my heart!

I know Hunter had a great weekend, but we missed him terribly and were so ready to get home to him. Well we get here, and he's asleep... and has been for 2 hours now! I can't wait to see his face when he realizes we are back home :)

Have a great week everyone, I promise to post about the conference asap.
