The last weekend in February we took a mini road-trip to St. Louis to watch Ryan run in a 9 mile trail race. Last year the weather was pretty nice and it was fun running around to watch Ryan. This year, however, was ANOTHER STORY. It was not even 20 degrees when we got there. So the girls and I got out and walked with Ryan to the check-in area. By the time he got his packet, we were FREEZING. So the girls and I headed back to the car and went shopping at Home Goods for awhile while Ryan ran!
By the time he would be almost finished, we drove back to the race, parked illegally right by the finish =), and got to watch him a couple times...and then watched him cross the finish line! It worked out perfectly!
Brynn was so funny...she kept saying "You know what Mrs. Ginger says (that's one of her teachers)...if you are cold, just RUN around really fast!" Then she proceeded to run around in circles for like ten minutes. I know it doesn't sound funny on here, but it was just one of the funny moments you want to remember.
Both the girls were cheering...it was really cute! Brynn was yelling "GO Daddy!" And Emory was just yelling "DADDY! DADDY!"
Brynn got to go skating! HA!
The race was near the Chesterfield Mall, so we stopped by to look at the American Girl store and to walk around the mall a bit. We had SO MUCH FUN!
Look at this new bakery set...I just LOVED this. I may have pushed a couple of kids out of the way to look at it...HA!
(Note our little Puma running sets? Brynn says "I like this because it has a JAGUAR on it!" ) I don't even know if that's a jaguar or how she knows what a jaguar is!
He's a good Dad for indulging us and letting us look around!
Then we headed to the Food Court..YUM!
When we got on the road around 2 these two were out within seconds!
It started snowing like crazy...thankfully we made it home fine.
