St. Louis visit

This weekend we made the long drive to St. Louis to see the Vernons. It was a fairly painful drive both ways, Connor didn't seem to interested in any of his DVD's and kept dropping his trucks and things and whining/crying for hours at a time. We survived and the visit was great otherwise.

Great Grandpa and Great Grandma came to St. Louis from Chicago and Uncle Alex, Uncle Chris and Aunt Abby had everyone over to their apartments for lunch (at Alex's) and dinner (at Chris and Abby's). Connor was pretty bossy, insisting everyone played cars with him and he got to go to a park near Chris and Abby's.

Grandma and Grandpa got him a "wiggle rider", which Connor referred to as a "motorcycle" and he (and Daddy) liked scooting around the house with it. On Sunday we took it up to a parking lot that's near Grandpa and Grandma's house and really got to play with it for a while. It was a neat toy and fun that adults could ride it with Connor.
