|The Cup Bakery|
We sampled the Cup's treats but will have to wait until we move to Mizzou to sample Amycake's cupcakes. Did you know that Springfield is the birthplace of Route 66? We walked along historic Route 66 which runs right through the downtown Park Central Square.

The downtown area was cute and had a bunch of fun, funky coffee shops, antique shops and artsy stores in addition to bars and restaurants.

We had a great time visiting with Dan's future colleagues and had a whirlwind trip of house hunting - we looked at rentals, lofts and lots of homes! In the end we found an adorable brick bungalow in a great neighborhood and we made an offer that has been accepted contingent on the owners having their offer on a new house accepted - hopefully this time next week we will be under contract on a new house for little Miss Annie! It has a great big fenced backyard for the pup to dig lots of holes in :-)
