Evelyn getting ready to get on the airplane
Drinking some of Daddy's water and playing on the iPad on the short flight to Houston
We found one in the Houston airport - probably not quite the same.
After dinner we killed some time (and energy!) playing on the moving walkway
They would walk/run down on the walkway, then stroll back to go again
We watched Toy Story on the longer flight to Kansas City...and fell asleep for the last 45 minutes of the flight
We got to see Grammie & Grandad and a few cousins, aunts, and uncles on Thursday night, but mostly just got a little girl in bed to get some sleep.
Friday morning, we got up and had breakfast, then got ready to head over to the market. My Dad had registered all of us - so we all got to go in and look around at all of the new products. The kids mostly enjoyed the free popcorn, candy, and pop! We found this room/hallway connecting the hotel and the convention center and named it the Wisdom room. It was perfect for those times over the weekend when we needed some space to let the kids run around and burn off some energy (it was in the 20s outside, so that wasn't much of an option).
Watching some Sofia while Mommy and Daddy get ready on Saturday morningKaleidoscope in downtown Kansas City (Dan almost didn't make it because we had to drive by the Sprint Center, where they were hosting first and second round games for the tournament). If you have kids (probably 12 and under) and are ever in Kansas City, go check this place out. We had kids from 6 months to 13 and pretty much everyone liked it. It's owned by Hallmark, and they let you just go free with a zillion art supplies, make whatever you want, and take it with you - all for FREE. It was really cool.
Daddy and Evelyn doing some drawing
Making some cards with ribbons
Can't. Get. This. Top. Off.
Moving onto water colors
This girl loves to paint!
Drawing with Mommy
She and Heidi found this little room that had lights and buttons that when you pushed them would make music...they had fun dancing in here!
Daddy/Uncle Dan helping monitor the coloring area while the Mom's shopped.IHOP (the International House of Prayer), so I went over there while Evelyn napped and Dan napped/watched basketball.
Such sweet time in the Presence of my Jesus...we need to move to Kansas City. For real.
We went to a place called Jack Stack Barbeque for dinner. It was my sister, Lisa's, and nephew, Gavin's, birthdays on Saturday, so this was their birthday dinner celebration. It's also my Dad's favorite place to eat in Kansas City. We had to wait a little while, but it was worth it.
Evelyn had some interesting dinner art out of french fries and bread...
The crew heading down the escalator for the egg hunt
A video Dan got of Evelyn hunting for her eggs!
She slept in my sister's pack-and-play for the weekend. She enjoyed listing off all of the animals on Noah's ark instead of sleeping the first night we were there.
The last morning, I found her snuggled into the corner like this.
So pretty, though.
It was definitely a quick trip and it went by too fast - but I am thankful that we got to spend some time with my family!
