Happy Birthday, Andrew!

Andrew’s birthday fell on a weekend with yet another soccer tournament this year. Last year, he traveled without us to Chicago over the big celebration weekend, but this year the whole family went to Springfield.

Livy, Ryan and I got up early Friday morning to scout out a shirt I’d had my eye on for him.  We went to a Tigers store in downtown Lee’s Summit and found just the one.

I think he liked it…

Livy wandered the store and finally found the perfect present to give her Daddy:

She found a license plate cover, which we later realized she thought was a picture frame.

She grabbed her screwdriver and went out to help Daddy put it on the car.

New license plate cover in place, we piled in the car to begin the trek to Springfield.  We knew we had to eat at Lambert’s, so we went straight there when we got in town.

Oh yah. Fried Okra.

and homemade “throwed” rolls!

I die.

After stuffing ourselves entirely too full, we made our way to the hotel. Livy loves hotels and this experience was no different. Sleep? No way! Mom’s makeup is way to accessible!

The three of us made it out to one of Andrew’s games, where Livy found watching a movie with her favorite soccer buddies to be much more fun than watching the game.

The rest of the time, we hung in the hotel, organizing M&Ms…

The weekend went quickly, but was so much fun. Being our college town, it was great to be back for a visit. Exhausted, we headed home, ready for our comfy beds!
