last tuesday we went to st. louis without the kids. we dropped them off at tessa's parents place and hit the road. we stopped by rei to get some supplies for our trip to the smoky mountains and ended up staying longer than we had planned. that got us over to the game a little later than we intended. still in plenty of time but it meant we had to pay $4 billion to eat stadium food. it was cool however that we met a lady on the way up to the stadium that had some friends bail out and she gave us some tickets in the outfield box on the third baseline in the 4th row. best seats of my life. it was a blast. cards stunk it up though and lost 4-1. the game got over around 11 and we got home at 2:30 in the morning.

yesterday we did a 4 mile loop as we try to fine tune our hiking shape for our trip to the smokies. 2 weeks and counting. it was a fun trail that wound up and down the ozark hills. some scenic overlooks a couple streams and lots of, "ashes ashes we all fall down" being sung from a certain individual strapped to my back.
august 4th was ellen's birthday. she is now over 2 years old. as you can see from the pictures she has a pooh bear cake, which tasted pretty good. some of her presents included a tea set, a doctor kit, veggie tales, books, bubbles, pickles, and hugs.
