Happy 80th Birthday Aunt Nett & SURPRISE!

This July 3rd Melissa and I set out early in the morning to travel to Columbia, Illinois to see/suprise my Aunt Nett for her 80th birthday. My mom was the only one who knew that we were coming to visit. It took us a little under 5 & a 1/2 hours but we made it. We went and checked into the hotel room rested for a bit and then got changed for the party. We showed up to the party, not even my sister knew we were coming and we walked in the door and my Aunt Nett was talking to someone so I had to wait a minute until Jennifer pointed her to me and said who is that. My Aunt Nett spotted me and started to cry and said, "Oh Gregory, I haven't seen you in ages!" We talked for a bit and I got to see my Uncle's, Bill & Larry, and several other aunts and uncles that I hadn't seen in a long time due to not having much vacation.
After the party, we went and saw Jennifer's new house and I took Melissa for a tour around Waterloo. I showed my old grade school, Ahne's Bakery, the post office, our old house, and several other local landmarks, there are not many in Waterloo :-). We then went back to the hotel and partook in a St. Louis
tradition, Imo's Pizza! I would say that my listings of pizza would be:
  1. La Nova Pizza & Wings - Buffalo, NY - Link.
  2. Imo' s Pizza - St. Louis, Mo area - Link.
  3. Bob & John's La Hacienda - Buffalo, NY - Link.
It was a close race between Imo's and Bob & John's but I think this recent taste test put Imo's on top. More to come tomorrow.
