Quick Trip to Saint Louis

So last Tuesday I got a text message from Derek when he was in class. It said, 

"I just won two tickets to next Tuesday's Cardinals Game!!" 

Apparently Derek answered a trivia question on Twitter and he won the tickets! 


He really does have all the luck.

Even crazier is that we decided to go! 

Thomas and Anna-Kate both had a check up scheduled for the morning so we just left after that. Thomas slept most of the way and Anna-Kate slept about half of the trip. They were both really good on the drive! 

When we got into town we had a little time to kill before we met up with two of Derek's cousins so I snapped a few pictures of Thomas and Anna-Kate. 

I can not tell you how much I LOVE Thomas' face in this one! 

By a few I meant a lot of pictures... :)

We met up at a place called Pi Pizzeria. It was such a good, deep-dish pizza!  Derek hadn't seen his family there in years, so it was a lot of fun visiting with them! We are going to have to see them every time we go now! 

After dinner, we went to the game. We were amazed by the awesome seats we got! Derek kept waiting on a home run to come our way while I secretly hoped it wouldn't! ha! Seriously a flying ball with two children by me... no thank you! :)  As cool as it would have been... they stayed away. 

The game was SO hot! Poor Anna-Kate was a sweaty mess! Even Thomas was hot! 

The Cardinals had a good lead by the end of the 7th inning and the kids were getting really tired, so Derek and I decided to walk the park a bit and head on out. Anna-Kate and Thomas were sound asleep before we even got out of the parking garage, and the game ended shortly after that. 

We headed back to Searcy after the game! The first bit of the drive went pretty fast but about 2:00, Derek and I started getting tired. Thankfully we made it home about 3:30! 

Derek and I are absolutely crazy for doing a turn-around trip but he only had one day he could take off and he loves the Cardinals, so we knew we had to take advantage of the tickets! We were really glad we went!
