St. Louis Museum of Transportation

There are a few things William absolutely loves.  He loves any type of trains or planes and he also loves to cook, more on cooking later.  When we were in St. Louis we took him to the Museum of Transportation.  Why we left his coat at home I will never know.  However, I did have extra clothes so he has lots of layers on which was a blessing considering it was sleeting while we were there.  Why we went to an outside museum in the sleet is another question that has no answer.

We all went to dinner at Gallagher’s restaurant in Waterloo, IL.  We love their family style, fried chicken dinner.  I guarantee you’ve never had this type of fried chicken or mashed potatoes before, unless you came to our wedding dinner reception.  Then you have.

Christmas Snow

We spent Christmas in St. Louis this year and had an extended family reunion with our cousins from NC and our Uncle George from OH.  It’s funny to think of how small our extended family was when I was growing up when I compare it to how big our children’s extended family is.  I had one aunt & uncle and 3 cousins.  William has 14 aunts and uncles and at least 24 first cousins and 5 second cousins, most of whom are on the Dickmann side.  We had kids galore at Christmas.  Fun times.     
Oh, and it snowed while we were there so the kids from NC got to play in Christmas snow!
