A St. Louis rarity in this day and age...

We went out to eat last night around 6:15pm... we decided to grab a St. Louis rarity in this day and age... the newly opened Wendys in St. Peters, MO... It has been non-stop packed traffic to this restaurant... every time we drive by the drive through line is out into the the street and all the spots in the parking lot are full. You look into the windows and you can see almost every table is full of people and a long line to wait in to order. People are drinking their vanilla and chocolate Frosties and enjoying their 99 cent Jr. bacon cheese burgers with 99 cent small fries.

The three of us got 7 items and 2 waters for at total of $7.13! Gotta love Wendys!
2 Jr. Bacon Cheese Burgers,
1 Spicy Chicken sandwich,
1 Yogurt Cup (with granola)
1 cup of mandarin oranges,
1 small fries
1 baked potato
2 waters

Camera phone pictures from the zoo.

My first experience at the zoo with my daughter. We got to see the feeding of the sea lions... that is always a fun event. You have to love the free Saint Louis zoo!

I was able to go to the Royals / Cardinals game Tuesday night in St. Louis... unfortunately, the Royals didn't have as much luck as they did Monday night and the Cardinals won 5-1. The game the next night was even crazier... the Royals were winning until St. Louis tied it in the 9th and then St. Louis ended up winning it in the 14th inning. Almost Royals!

Wow, I just heard about the 13th ever in baseball history unassisted triple play performed by Colorado rookie shortstop Troy Tulowitzki. I did a search on youtube and could only find one video of an unassisted triple play. Sure doesn't happen often.

Well, it has been awhile since I posted again... I have started a weekend job of maintaining a website... yikes! Hopefully it wont take up all my weekend time. Anyhow, the site is It took me a long while to come up with a domain name that I liked and hadn't already been taken... so lets hope this site takes off. :)

Icy fountain left on all year round.

This is quite an amazing view every year when it gets below freezing... the water keeps going and these layers of ice form around it. It almost looks like someone soaped the fountain until you realize that it is ice pilled up around the shooting water.

Sammy and Lady video

This is a video of my two dogs one night after they ran around outside a bunch. Don't they look exhausted? So lovable when they are exhausted and wanting to just do nothing but lay around. I wish they could always be that relaxed.

Pancakes for Dinner night!

Tonight was pancakes for dinner night! I took some lovely shots with my camera phone of me making the pancakes. I recommend you check how much batter you have left before you decide to declare it "pancakes for dinner night". See the size of those pancakes...(kinda small) we were only able to make 4 that size, and 1 tiny one... Bummer eh, but they still were delicious! Be sure to join us next time when we have a brand new box of pancake batter.

Gooooo Chiefs!

Ok, so they got pretty lucky to even get into the playoffs... but the Chiefs made it! They haven't had much luck against the Colts in previous outings, but I think they might have a chance tomorrow. I look for the Chiefs to take the early lead... then the Colts will rally back and gain a one touchdown lead. The chiefs will score the final touchdown and win the game by going for two. GO CHIEFS!

Snowy Travel to Fort Dodge Iowa

First off, note that the image I have here is not from our trip, but an example snowy road. Sunday morning we left Saint Louis, MO around 10:30 AM where it was a nice 50 degrees out. When we hit Waterloo, IA we stopped at the Flying J gas station because we had heard it has the cheapest gas around (which appeared to be true). Anyhow, while we were there we heard about a snow storm on west 20 (towards Fort Dodge). It was around 47 degrees out still in Waterloo. We kept driving down 20 and around mile marker 175 we saw our first snow flake. Then just before crossing I-35 it started accumulating on the roads. At the first Fort Dodge exit there was ice and snow on the roads and we didn't feel safe going over 40 miles per hour. I wasn't sure if we were going to make it to the hotel or not. Finally we got to 169 and headed down to our hotel, the Budget Host Inn around 6:30PM. A very scary and eventful day/night of driving (saw two cars that spun off the road on highway 20).
