Weekend Update :: Family, Friends and a Wedding

What a wonderful weekend! Let's get right to it.

Friday night we met R's parents for dinner at Old Chicago. Love that deep dish Chicago style crust!

Saturday morning we were up early. I headed to my running class and knocked out three miles! After a quick shower at home we threw our bags in the car and headed to KC. First stop was the Nelson Atkins Art Museum. My parents met us there and we headed straight out into the sculpture garden for a picnic lunch.

We had a great time walking through all of the exhibits. The best one was "Mummy Mysteries Unveiled." I would love to go back again. Our next stop was the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art. After this, we drove up north to find our hotel/wedding reception site. Quick tour + happy hour before heading off to the wedding. My brother was the best man (see tall guy with beard).

A fun dinner reception followed. We all had a great time eating and catching up with old friends.

Sunday morning we lounged around in our comfy hotel room. Later our group rallied together and we headed to breakfast at First Watch - love this place! After eating a few of us walked around before hitting the road.
ouch, the sun is in my eyes!
That afternoon we worked at home and took a nice afternoon walk. The beautiful fall foliage is really making a show.

    Good to hear from you. I'm excited to stalk your blog a little and see what you've been up to. Glad you enjoyed the baked oatmeal. It's become a staple in our house. Even for dinner :)
