We visit the market once a week to shop for produce and walk the downtown area. I like showing the kids the fruits and vegetables.....teaching them that these things are grown from the earth instead of in the displays at Target. We talk with the farmers, enjoy a honey staw occasionally and almost always sample the yummy salsa made in Kansas.
I'm challenging the kids to find a vegetable each week and learn how it's grown....some will be a refresher for me, too!
I'm sure we'll eventually indulge in a snowcone or two....and maybe even one of the lovely pies brought in by a local bakery. So much goodness to choose from! Have I mentioned how much we're enjoying our new lives here?
A statue of Mr. William Strang, founder of Overland Park.
We walked over to the Santa Fe Commons Park....the kids love playing at the huge gazebo.
Love the silly look on her face here.
With a statue in the park. Kansas City and surrounding suburbs LOVE statues. And, fountains. Go figure!
