Julie has been getting into the Twilight book series lately. She just finished the first book last Friday and had to place a hold on the next book at the public library. She finally got the book today and the picture above shows what she has been doing since she got home. The dog seems to be enjoying the book also.

Ever since we started dating, Julie has been telling Lance that he needs to go to St. Louis and try Ted Drewes. Ted Drewes, for those of you not from St. Louis, is a custard place that Julie says is an institution in St. Louis. Lance finally got tired of hearing Julie talk about how good this place was and decided to try it himself. He actually did his own experiment by getting the same type of concrete there that he gets at his favorite custard place in Liberty (Sheridans). Lance came to the conclusion that there really isn't any difference between the two at all. Julie didn't like hearing this verdict and still believes that Ted Drewes is the best ever.
This weekend we were lucky enough to be on the farm to see some of the baby calves. There are nine of them so far, and one of them was born about an hour before we arrived. We took the 4 wheelers down to see them and took some nice pictures. Lance's favorite is the one where you can still see the afterbirth (he thought it was cool).
This past weekend we made the trek down to Washington,Missouri for a Bruder family reunion. The reunion consisted of a hay ride, fishing, great food (hot dogs and brats on the grill), trivia about Grandma and Grandpa Bruder, a game of Name That Bruder, and some great stories. It was great seeing everyone and we had a great time.

The renovations to the outside of the house are done for the most part. We did finally put the finishing touches on the front by purchasing a new garage door. Julie picked it out and it matches very well with the exterior. Nice job Julie.
