Trip 2010: Kansas City

I'm finally getting around to the very last part of our trip! I'm sure you're all thankful you won't have to read about this anymore. Ha!

Anyway, we stopped in Kansas City for two nights for a family reunion with my mom's side of the family. We are spread out from Ohio to Chicago to Arkansas to Denver so we don't see each other that often.

It was really great to see everyone again and to have a chance to reconnect. We didn't do any real formal "reunioning" but just spent time together. So fun!

Of course, Abigail was instantly drawn to my Aunt Ronda. She is truly the ultimate aunt and is one of the most amazing people I know. She is great with kids so, of course, Abigail adored her!

Here they are checking out the view!


Me and my cousin, Rachel.


Rachel holding Elsie. Elsie was being a little fussy at this particular moment! :)


Alex (my nephew), Abigail, and my aunt Ronda have fun playing together!



My Grandma Helen and my Mom let the babies (Elsie and my nephew Isaac) have a chat.



My dad with his pride and joy - the younger 2 grandkids.



All of the younger generations at the Plaza Fountains pose for a picture.


All of us pose for a picture. Andrew took the picture and later photoshopped himself in but I didn't upload that one. Perhaps I will later!



The Walter siblings.



Elsie crashes for her morning nap. She took about a 2-hour nap in her stroller! She slept some outside and finished her nap in the Cheesecake Factory where we ate lunch.



Abigail did not want her picture taken at this moment. She showed her displeasure by not holding onto Papa Kurt's head! Ha! I'm sure she won't like me showing this . . . some day!



Abigail and her daddy share a tender moment at lunch.


Abigail and her cousin Alex had a lot of fun hanging out!


Abigail had no fear of the open atrium. She even went to the 12th floor with Aunt Ronda and Uncle Dale and peered over the edge.




Then on Sunday morning we headed home. Whew! It was a busy but super fun trip! I can't believe how great our kids did in the car and sharing a room together. I would do it all again in a heartbeat!
