Pictures From Our Vacation

This year for our family vacation we went to Kansas City for 4 days. It was really good to get away for a bit, and not have to clean or cook!
We left on a Sunday afternoon, and got back on the following Thursday afternoon.
We didn't do a whole lot, but we did as much as we could with 3 young boys.
Monday we went to the Kansas City Zoo. I wasn't that impressed with it, I think our Zoo here in Wichita is much better, and there's no doubt that the layout of our zoo is better. But all in all the KC Zoo did have some different animals and things that were neat to see.

After the zoo we went to eat at the Rain Forest Cafe. It's definitely a place you go to enjoy the atmosphere and not the food (or the prices!). At first the boys were a bit leary of the animals, but then once they realized they weren't real they relaxed a bit.

Tuesday we went to Mc Donalds for breakfast and saw that Ronald was coming to do a little magic show. So we ate our breakfast, went back to the hotel swam for a bit and then went back to Mc Donalds to see Ronald. The boys got an autograph picture, a coloring page, and some tatoos that they proudly wore the next day.

That evening we went to a Royals game and the boys got a certificate for it being their first time at a game. Although the older two had been once before we still got them one, because no one told us about them the last time. They did excellent durring the game, I was surprised how well they did, especially because the game ended up going for 13 innings, and lasted 4 and a half hours! It was also sprinkling almost the entire game, but no one complained.

Gavin had taken his glove hoping to catch a ball, and a few got really close, but we didn't end up getting one this time. Hopefully next time we can get one.

Wednesday we took the boys to see the movie Wall-E, and went shopping.

And then we slept in and headed home on Thursday!

I wish I had taken more pictures, but I kept forgeting about my camera! Oh well, here are the few that I did get.
