Fun in OP

After the pomp and circumstance was over, we made sure to do some things Owen would enjoy. Mom, Em, and I took him to the Farmstead, which he obviously loved!

I remember going there when we were little. It is much cooler now than I remember, though :o)

Here he is, checking out the chickens...

and the giant goat!

He loved petting all of the animals and feeding the goats!

This barn was there when we were little, but the slide is much cooler now!

We all had a ball playing on the farm playground! If we lived here, I think I'd bring him once a week! It is only about a mile and a half from Mom and Dad's and it's free! You just can't beat close and free :o)

After a fun-filled few days in Overland Park, we packed up and headed back to St. Louis with Auntie Em. That night, we got together with Jim, Uncle Al, Megan and Tito, too, to watch the Idol finale. Did I mention my brother got a dog? He is a one year old Puggle named Tito...

Here is a photo of Tito and his "parents." Alex is so smart to get a one-year-old dog. Tito is potty trained, he likes to sleep in, he already knows tricks and has already been fixed.
For Owen and I, it's back to Evanston... wish us luck as we finish up the great graduation extravaganza of '08!
