Lots to catch up on. And, no mentions of dead animals in this post. So, sit back and relax.
We met up with an old friend of mine from Plano last week. Spent the morning at Deanna Rose and then Carter went back with the boys to Lawrence for the evening.
Kiddos fished for a while. Everything about this farmstead is picture perfect. We love it.
Jordan caught a fish in no time at all!
Our 3 punks fishing like pros.
Baby girl.....not scared of some stinky fish!
Tractor bikes......Jack's favorite. Lainey's almost big enough to reach the peddles and go on her own.
Fast forward to Father's Day. Homemade cards......a few small gifts.....and lots of excitement from the kids.
We made our annual dough hand prints. We have quite the collection now!
Steak is an oddity in this house since we normally live on such a budget.......and even more so with our recent unemployment status. But, we splurged.
I love scruffy, shaggy haired Blake.
A few days later, Sass came to babysit. Happy punks.
Love this girl.
We chatted for a bit, let Sass give us some suggestions of where to go and then we were off! I love a quiet car. Can you hear that? Nothing! Nothing but our bootleg Widespread CD. Heavenly.
We saw a hamburger car. No idea.
We drank Mojitos at One80 and enjoyed some tacos. All of this was in Westport.....a funky little district in KC.
We walked around and Blake made me laugh. He was certainly "on" this evening......as he says it.......so funny. I haven't laughed as hard as I did that night in forever.
For Ryan! For Ryan!
Blake huffed and puffed while I stopped at all the historical markers. He does not share my love for history.
He also gets annoyed when I read all of the articles on walls of places we go. I like the stories, folks.
We sat rooftop until the sun went down. Then, we sat some more. Fun.
Upon further investigation, I learned that the hoopla with this place was that it's the oldest existing building in Kansas City. Score! Blake wasn't so impressed.
You can see a little bit of his lack-of-excitement here on our way out. Interesting.
Finally, a peak into the game of charades at our house. Good times.
We're gearing up for a Caroline visit next week.....which will include lots of KC excitement. A World War I Museum visit........a tour of the Kansas City Star newspaper press room......a day trip to Weston......a day trip to Baldwin City for the trains and to see the wagon grooves in the land from the Westward Expansion.......lots of mod podge activities.......a spa party for Lainey (first time to have her fingernails/toenails painted)......TMZ.......dorking around the house making fun of our kids.......oh, and the 4th of July! It's about to get good, peeps. Stick around.
