So 2 and 1/2 weeks ago Mark called me up to ask what we were doing for the weekend. He said lets meet in Kansas City and hang out. They are moving to Arizona, so it was the last time we will see them for quite some time. That Friday, after work, Colt and I packed up and headed to Kansas City. We stayed Friday and Saturday night.(Thanks Mark and Ali you two are too good to us!). We were so excited to see Mark, Ali, and their kids. We love them so much.
On Saturday we went to Union Station. They have all sorts of fun stuff there including trains (of course), a planetarium, shops, and Science City. We decided to hang out in Science City. It has all sorts of stuff to entertain the kids, Colt, and Mark! We were seriously there for about 4-5 hours. It was a lot of fun. Then right as we were about to leave I took Lexi and Deven to get a Carmel apple. We heard that Obama was speaking across the street. We got in the car, but before we left we wanted to check out all the crowds. Just then Obama came driving by while we were stopped at a red light. Ali and Colt jumped out of the car to try to get pictures. It was funny. After all that excitement we headed to get some food. We went to a famous BBQ place called Arthur Bryants. It was pretty good, but Colt got yelled at for not ordering correctly. (It was a little like Seinfeld "No soup for you" episode) Good times! Later on that evening Mark, Colt, and I found the Cheesecake Factory and got some fabulous pieces of cheesecake!!!
Sunday Mark and his family drove up with us to Adam-Ondi-Ahman. They have never been there. It was such a great experience. We sat and discussed different things, and Lexi was so cute she said, "I love hearing all of these stories, can we keep talking about them." We had such a great time with them. We are going to miss them so much. We love you Mark, Ali, Lexi, Deven, and baby Guss!!!
