When not having a play-date with friends, King resorts to Strudel.
He is just as social as his siblings at 2, always asking for a friend to play with, we are blessed with lots of these:)
this is a must make, YUM!!
here is the recipe, (I didn't think the picture made it look too enticing, so disregard)
Xander loves to perform and has been working on his magic if anyone would like a show, he would probably be pretty cheap.

Monroe has a small mouth with no space for all of her permanent teeth. Im not sure where that came from Kenzie? but Trav and I seem to have big mouths:)
Dr.T hooked her up with a palate expander yesterday.
Up close with the metal mouth.

The gangs back together! Here's hoping they will forgo their chattiness & demonstrate their kind, helpful, creative selves to help Miss Bryant have a fabulous first year, we want to keep her around.
4th, 6th, & 1st, last year these 3 will be together
Yes, Mrs.Sandmann, you can't get rid of us, we will be visiting often
my kids have had some art withdrawl, so happy to see Miss Smith!
Mrs. Quintanar has been both of the older 2 kiddos teacher, we are blessed with her again this year! (And Jude is pretty pumped with lots of his friends in his class from last year as well as some new ones)
and its up to me and Strudel to entertain this guy!

My parents have retired to Hamilton, Mo where they both grew up. They have fixed up my dad's childhood home into a complete dollhouse, I need my mom to come deep clean mine, she is the best! I love that they are so much closer now, but they have been busy with lots of house/yard projects so we had to go check out their work for the weekend!
the kids love the rides on the mower, the yard is perfect of course, yep we could use some help there too:)
We had dinner with Granny, I haven't got to see her since she broke her hip a few months ago, she looked great and we loved visiting with her.
The worst part of Missouri, too many smokers! At the restaurant we ate at there was seriously a smoking section, we will have to go on Sundays I guess. The roads are awful there too, we got stuck in some construction and Jimmy navigated us into a few close crashes.
tell me this belongs to a lactation consultant??
Potbelly on the plaza, I have only been to them in Chicago, love them! Pretty sure I have my own potbelly after eating there 2 days in a row, definitely not low cal.
My parents kept the kids while we stayed on the plaza for a night, they took lots of pictures and gave us updates, the kids loved the simple life, no tv or wifi there!
and yes most of our weekend revolved around eating as usual, we did manage to get a couple of short runs in.
In lieu of the kids request for Worlds of Fun we stopped at Skyzone for 30 minutes on the way home.

It was Trav's 20 year class reunion last weekend, seriously where did the time go?
He had the best class in high shool, such a fun group, several that have remained close.
5 of these boys pictured 25 years ago below on Bee Bop Braves:) I think John has grown out of his jersey a little.
we opted out of the dinner at the Hilton Garden Inn, for Harry's:)
some of the boys
Moley band in the middle, where is Kurt?
Jen & Trav haven't changed a bit:)
