Another fun fall weekend! This weekend Mizzou celebrated 100 years of Homecoming. On Friday night we went to campus house decs in Greek Town (Greek pairings decorate and pomp large backdrops as a stage for their skits to entertain the entire MU and Columbia community – students, faculty, alumni, and families. It was fun!) On Saturday morning Claire and I walked to the parade on campus while Adam worked. Then we packed our bags and our cooler and headed back to campus for the shortest tailgate party ever. We needed to hit the road to get to St. Louis! There we got to visit Kate, Chris, and precious baby Thomas. After a great visit with the P family Claire and I went to an awesome birthday party for Alex (5) and Avery (3). The theme was cars and cupcakes and I don't have a picture of the incredible cakes made by Erin's mom but WOW! Claire loved it and I enjoyed visiting with Erin the A family. On Sunday we hung out with Peter, Eleanor and Stuart and went on a long walk with Aunt Mary. We called it a "training" walk in preparation for the marathon next weekend that neither of us are ready for. Yikes! Finally on Sunday night we were exhausted but SO excited to watch the Cardinals beat the Brewers and clinch their spot in the 2011 World Series! I love October!! Next weekend: Adam's birthday, Aunt Lyle and Uncle Ray, the Bruegs family, and 26.2 miles of St. Louis.
