on holidays~


#3.

He looks unhappy.

But oh no!  He is simply putting on his "I am far too cool for this" persona.  We had a great time traveling here, especially our dinner, which ended with my all time favorite - FRENCH SILK PIE at Bakers Square in my home town~  I'm pretty sure it is now his favorite too.

On another note, my dad had mentioned that we had an appointment this morning at 8:30 am. I will admit, I was nervous.  I was worried that it was something bad, health related, scary.  So imagine my surprise when we arrived for my MASSAGE!  Honestly, best. dad. ever.

My husband is a huge fan of Bakers Square...he was a busboy there in the early-mid 80s LOL!

Me...no Bakers Square in St. Louis, but we had a restaurant called Tippins that also claimed to make the best French Silk pie in the world!

Enjoy the reunion and time with your family!

Blessings,
Valerie
