As you probably know from my last two posts, our family traveled back to Kansas for my grandfather’s funeral. While we were there, we had wonderful visits with family, and found some time to do a few things. Like visit downtown Kansas City with the cousins! Kansas City’s Union Station was our destination. The perfect activity to keep us out of the summer heat and the summer rain.
I’ll say it once, I’ll say it 100 times. Double BOB. Every mom crazy enough to have two kids in 18 months (or less if you’re crazier!) needs one. The ceiling inside of Union Station is so pretty! And you would never expect it’s attached to the neatest children’s science museum.
Hello Science City! I had fond memories of coming here as a kid. I was a little apprehensive as to whether it would be a good activity for Mitchell, my primary concern being that he would be too young for all of the activities. But there was more than enough to keep him entertained and plenty of age-appropriate fun! Even better – it was $12 for adults and kids were free! A full day of family fun for $25! I’d love to bring them back in a few years too!
We went with Grandma and Grandpa Brim, Cousin Amie and Nicholas, and our littlest cousins – Sterling, Scarlett, and Stella!
Digging for dinosaur bones!
And this tired, cranky little face was how we knew it was time to bid our farewells to the cousins and headed back to the hotel for a well-deserved and much-needed nap.
We left the big boys [aka my father and husband] downtown at the World War I museum.
Kansas City has a lot of fun things to offer and is kind of pretty if you like cities… even on a cloudy, rainy day. 🙂
