It started Thursday evening when friends from out of town got to our house. Jake and Mark are friends from chiropractic school but have remained in touch. This was the first time their family of 4 has come to stay with us...to "tour the Lou." LOL!!
Wyatt and Sloane had school on Friday. They go 1/2/ day so after we picked them up we headed to Imo's Pizza. (Famous STL pizza) Jake and Hayley had a few things on their to-do list since they lived in STL while he was in school. ;) Imo's was one of them!
After Imo's we headed to the Science Center. We wanted to go to the STL Zoo but the high was only 48 degrees...so that wasn't happening. (They have a 4 year old and a 6 month old) Science Center was was a hit for the kids and dads for sure! Nerd Alert...ha ha ha!!!
After the Science Center we took them to get Ted Drew's ice cream. It was so cold but we blasted the heat and covered with blankets as we enjoyed the ice cream. LOL! We sat in the back of the car with the doors open...memories right!?!?!
Friday night we stayed at home and enjoyed spaghetti and meatballs. The kids all played so well together...nonstop! The evening at home was great! Saturday morning we woke to even more super cold weather so we had a low key morning before lunch. They wanted to eat at Pappy's BBQ. Even though we live in STL we had never been so it was fun for all! There is usually a long line so we wanted to get there right when they opened. We had an early lunch and decided to take a tour of a candy factory that was close to the restaurant. (Chocolate Chocolate Chocolate) The tour was good but would have been way better if they were "in production." They don't work on weekends. ;( It was still neat to see it all and get samples of course.
After the tour we went home to have a rest time....well...they dad's and kids rested while the mom's went shopping! Hobby Lobby, Michael's, and Target for the win! Once we got back we all order Chinese from a place nearby and had another great evening at home.
Sunday morning we woke up and all got ready for church. They went with us and we went to our "usual" McAllisters lunch after church. We gave hugs and said our goodbyes before we rushed off to meet family to see a movie!
We ended the weekend with a relaxing night at home eating leftovers and preparing for a holiday week!! It's only a 2 day school week then time to parrrtttyyyyy!! ;)
