Kansas City Trip - Part 1

This is my Weekend Review, but it has to be divided up into a couple of post, unless you want to be here for a while☺

"We're going to Kansas City. Kansas City here we come." The Big 12 Championship was at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, MO...and of course, my Sooners were playing there! What an exciting and fun time!! Me, Michael, Isaiah, Mom, and Dad took a four and a half hour road trip north to Kansas City. We headed out late Friday night. Our hotel was in Overland Park, KS. It was only about a 20 minute drive to Arrowhead Stadium, so it was a great place to stay. I highly recommend it. Saturday morning, after sleeping in a little bit, we got up and had breakfast and set out for some shopping and fun before game time. Well, most of us. My Dad stayed back at the hotel..."holding down the fort." Way to go, Dad!
Isaiah ♥LOVES♥ staying in hotels. I'm thinking we have him a little spoiled. On the way to Kansas City, he asked does our hotel have an indoor pool....what about a hot tub...room service? LOL☺ I think it was satisfactory. He seemed to enjoy it.
For our quick excursion on Saturday, we ventured into Lenexa, KS. They have a great mall which is the home to the Rainforest Cafe. We thought that would be fun for Isaiah...I think we were right☺ There were lions, monkeys, fish, BIG butterflies, trees and vines...
It was a really fun place to eat! Can't you tell?
What's a trip to the Rainforest Cafe without some animals to take home. (Like we don't have any animals at home...these people are sneaky)
We also took a spin on the double-decker carousel at the mall. I think carousels are beautiful.
Don't let this smile fool you, after choosing to ride on the upper deck, Isaiah was freaking out. He was holding onto the pole for dear life. How can a little dare-devil like him be afraid of a little 'ol carousel? (It was kinda funny...does that make me a bad mom?).
That's Isaiah and "Mr. Seal".


I think you can see the "freaking out" a little better in this photo☺ Don't worry. He's not scarred for life or anything. It's not like a I forced him to the upper deck. THAT would make me a bad mom. (I'm still trying to make myself feel better for laughing)

Well, that was Day 1 in Kansas City. I'll be back tomorrow with more pics.
Hope you all had good weekends!
