Roooooad Trip: Day Two

Monday, August 10, 2009

So, it's day 2 of our road trip back to DC-- we're currently making our way from Kansas City to St. Louis via a stop for lunch with Tyler's cousin in Columbia, MO, where we ate these...
Yes, fried green pepper rings sprinkled with powdered sugar which were surprisingly delicious, furthering my theory that anything fried is delectable.

We had a nice but brief time in Kansas City (a mere 16 hours), eating and spending time with friends who are expecting their first baby in a few weeks. We also stopped here to snap some pictures on our way out...
Never heard of him? He started The Pony Express, was Buffalo Bill's first employer (and later friend), is credited with the development of Kansas City, AND is a direct ancestor of Tyler's. Bet you didn't know I married into Midwestern royalty did you?

We're now about an hour outside of St. Louis where we'll meet up with my brother Andy and nephew Drew. We have reservations at my brother's restaurant tonight and I've already scouted out a cupcake joint. Sa-weet. Car dancing is in full swing, much to my husband's delight...
