This weekend, Jen and I traveled south to visit our friends Laura and Freddie in Springfield, MO. Our former neighbors welcomed us into their home and had a weekend of fun and sun in store for us.
Due to the aforementioned baby shower, Jen and I got on the road early Saturday morning rather than Friday night. We rolled into town around 11 and headed off to lunch at Maria’s for some fried tacos: Mmmmmm! Then we trekked downtown (yes, Springfield does have a downtown) to watch the Springfield Cardinals take on the Tulsa Drillers. A sunburn quickly ensued, and the Cards gave up a lead in a tough loss, but we certainly enjoyed ourselves.
That evening, we headed down to Branson to take in a quick hit at the outlet mall and the all you can eat lobster buffet at Whippersnapper’s. Again, I say: Mmmmmm! Finally, we retired to Casa Doyle for some hot domino action.
The next day, we awoke to Krispy Kremes, barbecue, and more dominos! Sunday night, we worked our way back home fat and happy after another great weekend with Laura and Freddie.
