We scheduled a few days off in September for us to have a little family time, booked a hotel and spent some time in the big city with just us and the kids. Usually when we get up to KC it's to spend time w/ family or run errands or go to meetings. But this time it was just about the kids and play time. It was a nice change up!!! We started out w/ lunch @ Costco 'cause we're weird like that, then went to the new Lego City downtown.
And we had a little fun w/ the karaoke a'la Glee...
(Joseph doesn't know I'm posting this....) K-lady LOVED the karaoke.
We'd just finished reading Charlie and the Chocolate Factory so we watched the Johnny Depp version that night at the hotel. Gotta love a little crazy Tim Burton.
The next morning we headed to Union Station and Science City.
Joseph and I took turns reading a really interesting book while driving (in case you're in need of a good read....): The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot. It's a fascinating story about the history of modern science, cell research and the evolution of ethics in medicine.
We had a great time just enjoying the city and each other - it was fun to have it all be about our little family. These kids are a blast! :)
