Lately, we’ve been getting a jump start on summer with lots of little trips, events, and spending time outside as much as possible. The weather’s been beautiful, aside from a few rainy days here and there, of course. Our new house came with some strawberry plants that have been exploding with fruit the last few days. B loves to help pick them and eat them for snacks!
Jordan went on a hunting trip for a week, so my mom and I took B up to Kansas City for a few days just to get out of town. We loved seeing the horses at my friend Jessica’s parents’ home, including this pony named “Tater.” B was all about feeding carrots to the horses.
We did Crown Center one morning because the forecast was all rain, and made our way over to Union Station to visit Science City. We lucked out not once, but twice, with free passes in to Science City thanks to our Exploration Place membership, and we even got to play outside when the rain cleared out. Their outdoor area is crazy cool! It’s full of downtown views, and the playground is unlike anything I’ve seen. B loved climbing all over this jungle gym made of what looks like plastic Pringles chips, ha.
Of course we stopped at Fritz’s for burgers and fries! B was in awe of the little trains delivering food. If you’ve never gone to Fritz’s in KC, the one at Crown Center is so fun! We had more than enough to do that morning at Crown Center with B, and loved topping it off with a kid-friendly lunch.
Jordan has officially begun the golf brainwashing, and B is all about it. They love practicing their putts together, and it’s adorable to watch them bonding over this sport that Jordan absolutely loves.
We got back from KC and had a brunch and shopping event with Kendra Scott in the Waterfront! It was so fun to see all the moms and babies that came out to shop for Mother’s Day.
We’ve been having so many fun play dates with friends too! B loves her little buddies. Right before this photo, we caught these two playing in Mali’s water dish. Their faces crack me up!
We’re looking forward to summer, and all the adventures ahead of us including some fun trips and a lot of time in the pool.
