KC Day 1

We began our little spring break getaway with a stop on Sunday in Leawood for some coupon shopping at the Gap and a quick lunch at ingredient. My build-your-own salad was good, but Ryan's Yard Bird chicken sandwich wasn't cooked all the way through (he got sick later that night).

Next we met the Turner Family at Union Station, a big, beautiful historical place. Our main purpose was to visit the Planetarium, which was much different than I expected. We watched a very factual 45 minute film on the planets in the solar system, which put almost all of us to sleep at one point or another. I guess I thought it would be like a big telescope or something. We did a little browsing at the Adventure Store and let the kids fly the little copters they bought all over the wide open spaces.

Then we checked in at the Embassy Suites near the Plaza, one of our favorite places to stay. The kids made themselves right at home...

Dinner at the The Cheesecake Factory rounded out the night, as well as an after dinner swim in the hotel pool. Good times...
