Family Trip

In April we took a few days off work & road tripped up to Kansas City.
We started off with a couple of nights at the Great Wolf Lodge.
The kids had an absolute blast here
It was definitely one of those places I never had to ask them to smile for the camera...
Denver enjoyed every minute he was in the water and really came a long way swimming.
Annie really progressed also & was very brave & did every slide.
She also persisted & after many tries made it across the water logs & lily pads which is basically a balancing act along with requiring tons of upper arm strength.
Philip won Dad & Husband of the year for doing all the slides over & over again with the kids since pregnant women couldn't 
He probably also deserves a medal for doing the MagicQuest with Annie which consisted of running around the hotel finding clues
Denver mainly used his wand to bang on things to make them open...
Fun times all around
We also hit up the Kansas City Zoo which really is a great place. We saw lots of animals
rode every form of transportation they had, 
and played around.
A highlight of the trip was a KC Royals game.  The kids especially loved when the Jumbotron would say "GET LOUD!"  "LOUDER!!!"  We had all sorts of stadium food & really enjoyed the night.
We also had a chance to go to a new aquarium in town & Legoland both of which the kids loved.
Legoland - 
we were in Kansas so there was quite a bit of Wizard of Oz reference...
A turn in the wind tunnel with tornado strength winds
4D Lego movie
A neat little find while we were there was Fritz's restraunt where your meal was delivered by little electric trains to the table & you phoned in your order.  The kids thought this was awesome.
(Really she did like it even if this expression doesn't show it. :)
We enjoyed time together, took naps, didn't follow a schedule & just had a fun few days away.
