Boomer Sooner Roadtrip ( ;

A couple weekends ago some of my family and I headed up to Cincinatti to watch OU play some football.
We stoped in St. Louis and stayed the night. Just in case any of you do not know I want to tell you all that St. Louis had the BEST CRUMB CAKE EVER! We found a bakery/grocery/coffee shop and even though they didn't have the crumb cake they had the crumb cookies and holey moley I think I gained a few pounds just with those. Pretty sure we got about 20 cookies and by the end of the trip they were gone! After our stop in St. Louis we headed up to Cincinatti which by the way I have fallen in love with that city. It is so pretty and the fall colors are already showing and the downtown area is so nice. We ate at the famous Skyline Chili (ahhh mazing!!) We walked around Fountain Square, did a little shopping, and headed back to our beautiful downtown hotel. Here are some pics up to this point....

The next day we got ready and went walking downtown. We saw were the Cincinatti Reds play baseball, we walked around the Bengals stadium, had our coffee at a little downtown coffee shop, shopped a little, and finally headed to the BIG GAME! OU vs. Cincinatti

Brandon got to see the St. Louis Rams play (he loves Sam Bradford) 

We had a great time! I love my family so much. I think Brandon feels "complete" now that he has been to two games in one weekend... an OU game and a Rams game. We love Cincinatti and St. Louis and can't wait to go back.
