I had my doubts about this city. How random is Kansas City? I must say I was wrong.
Five of us began the trek from Nashville at 6 AM Friday morning all piled in a rental (very modern and high-tech) mini van. They don't make mini vans like they used to...at this point I wouldn't even mark it off my list of potential future cars. We had a 10 hour car ride full of stand still traffic, competitive car games, movies, chatter, and lots of bonding time. We even got to drive through St. Louis and see the arch, which I had never seen. Needless to say it was definitely a highlight for me.
Once we arrived in Kansas City, we soon reunited with my brother and sister-in-law. And then there were seven...
We soaked up every minute of the weekend. We saw the Royals play the White Sox Friday and Saturday night. We toured the Hallmark Museum, ate some famous Kansas City barbecue, did some shopping, celebrated Daniel and Krista's first year of marriage, and played a serious game of Wits & Wagers.
It was such a treat for us all to be together for the weekend. I wish we could do it more often, but it just makes these occasions that much sweeter.
