Weekend update

M-I-Z!! Z-O-U!!

What a weekend. Jen and I took Peanut down to Columbia, MO to visit Jen's old stomping grounds. During the time that we lived down there, we thought nothing of the length of the trip (roughly five hours) between Columbia and the Quad Cities. However, now that we're a bit older and have a toddler (with one on the way), the trip seems to be a bit longer than we remembered. Thank God for iPods and portable DVD players.

We had a blast while we were there, going out to eat at Chevy's (a great mexican place), staying at our friend Molly's house (where Peanut enjoyed playing the piano),

playing games with Molly and our other friends Mona, Kimberly, and Kimberly's fiance Rich. But the best part (no offense to Moswald and others) was going to the Missouri (now ranked #9)/Iowa State game. And the best part of that, was the fact that it was Peanut's first live football game.

We watch football at home on Sundays and Monday nights, so Peanut has a bit of an idea what's going on. She had a ton of fun, cheering for both teams and dancing to the marching band and the stadium music. Best of all, for Peanut, was Truman.

It was good to be back in Columbia, and it's been too long since we've seen Molly and Kimberly, but it was nice to get home again.

Especially since it meant getting to see the dogs again.

I love that she got the M-I-Z Z-O-U down to cheer along with everyone!!

Looks like fun! Maybe if Peanut gets that piano playing down she and Shortcake could start a band. They might be our ticket out, Jen! =)
