Another day

in beautiful Kansas City.

This morning I took the kids back to Science City at Union Station. I'd been considering going back since we didn't see everything, and when I realized that I'd left our nice diaper changing pad there it pretty much made the decision for me.

We went back and got to do the second and third floors which we had missed before. Upstairs turned out to have a lot more things for the kids to enjoy. We watched trains for awhile at a lookout perch that saw a bunch of railroad tracks going into Kansas City. The sign said over 150 trains per day pass by that spot. Ian got a big thrill out of watching the big trains. Both of the kids also enjoyed a music village with all sorts of different instruments for them to make noise & music with.

After lunch, Cindy came over and we were able to chat for awhile during the kids' naps. It was so wonderful to catch up a little more and just hang out for awhile. She's one of those people where we can always pick up where we left off and it's like we never missed a beat. For dinner, she picked up a pizza and we ate over at their house, then came back to our trailer and played Apples to Apples while we attempted to get the kids settled for bed. We really enjoyed the chance to have them over.

From Kansas City

I love this arrangement. We can live near our friends for a week. We're not so imposing, since we have our own place and aren't asking them to take off work for a week or anything. We definitely have plenty of ways to enjoy the city on our own, but we're able to get together whenever they are free. We still get to explore different cities and museums. It's such a great setup.

We have one more day in Kansas City, and then on Sunday it's off to South Dakota.
