A couple weeks ago we braved the open road and took Brady on his first (of many) trips to St. Louis. Matt's cousin Greg was being deployed to Afghanistan, so we went down to wish him well and see other friends/family in the Lou. We left Chicago around 8pm so Brady could sleep the whole way down- which he did. It was wonderful. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for the return trip home. Let's just say there were LOTS of tears. Brady was a mess too :) But we survived and will likely make another trip down soon. Thanks to the Baileys, Kathy & Sam and the Whiteheads for your hospitality!
