Today we went to Emporia to celebrate with my brother in law and family that the adoption of his stepdaughter (his wife's by a previous marriage) went through. Pari got to play with her cousin Belle (6 months younger but looks older and is taller), we got to eat cookout bugers and hopefully I avoided a sunburn. |
While Marz tossed frozen pizza into the oven I took the new bike trailer out with the kids. I went around Mary's Lake, which goes up some moderately steep hills. What I discovered is that with a bike trailer hauling about 100 lbs of kids, any momentum you gain going down a hill gets killed soon as it starts going uphill. Ouch.
Question for my faire friends on lj-who has gone to the St Louis faire, and would you recommend it? I have a free weekend coming up, was considering White Hart, but realized St Louis is about the same driving distance from Lawrence (or close enough for the sake of a weekend trip) and I've been planning to check it out since before White Hart opened. So,how big is it compared to KCRF (my only point of reference),and anything else you can tell me?
