One morning we were having breakfast of lemon cake and bacon and eggs. Jack asked for peanut butter. When I told him that was gross to put peanut butter on lemon cake he told me the peanut butter wasn't for his cake. It was for his bacon. Still gross. But that sweet smile gets me every morning.
On Friday of that week a sweet young couple from our church got married. The bride's sister is in my Sunday school class and she is just precious. Fred preformed the wedding and then we grabbed a picture with the bride's sister at the reception.
We met her in Hayti and then stopped for lunch at Lambert's. If you find yourself in Sikeston, Missouri you must eat at Lambert's. Just don't find yourself in Sikeston more than once every couple of years. Lambert's is home of the throwed rolls and my boys eat it up...the rolls and the throwing of the rolls.
After getting to STL for convention we settled into the hotel and Fred went to some meetings. The boys and I just hung out at the hotel. Tuesday we went to convention with Fred all day. It's the boys favorite. Okay, not really, but that's part of our deal. If they go to convention with us we will do a couple of fun things with our family. While we were at convention they did get to see Buster the Bulldog. (The mascot of our alma mater, Union University.)
I even ran into a sweet friend from college. We got to catch up throughout the day. It was a sweet surprise.
This little climbing adventure was a hike up to the 10 story slide. Boy was I not prepared for that either. Goodness. I wish there was a video of me climbing/crawling/scooting in my sandals with my purse. I'm sure it was quite entertaining.
The next day was spent at Six Flags. We had a blast together! Going to a theme park has become somewhat of a family tradition when we go to convention. Six Flags has a water park as well as an amusement park.
After Six Flags we went to the Mexican Restaurant to celebrate Jack's birthday. Because after you've been covered in sweat all day and riding roller coaster, Mexican food seems like the logical choice.
Turning 10 will wear a fella out.
We drove home Friday and then I decided it would be a good idea to invite 7 boys over for Jack's birthday party to a Redbirds game. What was I thinking?!? Jack took his first selfie since I was driving. Fred brought everyone else in his car, since we couldn't fit everyone in one car.
