One of the boys' favorite things we did while visiting was play at Lea McKeigan Park. What a great place to burn off some energy! They loved climbing the pyramid and riding on the zip line. I have some great videos of the zip line and it's a wonder they didn't fall off they were going so fast! There is a walking track around the park so Bill and I walked and talked while the boys played. It was a great way to spend a couple of afternoons.
With four boys that love Legos of course we had to spend some time at the Lego Land Discovery Center. They loved it! I must say that I rather enjoyed it too. The friends we were staying with also came along. They are expecting their first son this winter and needed to check the place out. Unfortunately this meant she couldn't go on any rides. We both loved the pregnant Lego minifigure!
We all enjoyed the 4D movie, rides, and building mosaics. There were a lot of hands on activities that the boys enjoyed also like making a car and racing it down the ramp. The Lego sculptures all throughout the building were amazing! My favorite part of the exhibit was the Lego depiction of the Wizard of Oz. It was so colorful and well done. I may have taken a lot of photos here.
|Alex really wished this was Dumbledore. ;)|
The other highlight of the Lego Discovery Center was the Star Wars sculptures. My boys are so pumped for the new movie coming out later this year and this added to their excitement!
We also spent some time at Union Station. We decided to divide and conquer. My friend and I took Alex to see Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone on the IMAX screen while Bill took the other three boys to Science City. I didn't raid his phone for photos but I'm sure he got a few. Which reminds me that all of these photos were taken with my iPhone 6. I love the quality of photos I get with it and also love that it is so easy to take every where. It was awesome seeing Harry Potter on the big screen. Alex read all seven books in three weeks over the summer and for him to see one of the movies in a movie theatre was a real treat! It was also a great way for my pregnant friend to get off her feet for awhile. As an added bonus it was Harry Potter's birthday!!
Of course you can't be in Kansas City and not have some BBQ so we enjoyed a meal at Jackstack Barbecue. The boys LOVED the ribs and ate a ton!! I can only imagine our food bill in a few years.
I hope you enjoyed our little trip to Kansas City. We had a great time and loved every bit of it. A big thank you to our friends for letting us crash at their place. It's not easy letting four little boys take over your home. Thanks for stopping!
