Last week, me and the fam took a quick trip to Kansas City. It was actually a work-related trip for my hubs (and I guess us too). In the past, I've made a couple posts talking about a possible move in our future. Moving to the Bahamas (where hubs is from) was contemplated, and then found out about some opportunities in other cities at hubs' company. We actually thought we were going to end up in Houston, Texas--but as it turns out, Kansas City came a callin'. I know, I know....I was a bit apprehensive too when I was asked "How would feel about living in Kansas City?", but after our trip I do feel a lot better about it. It is actually a really nice town. Who knew?! We don't plan to live in KC indefinitely, hopefully the things my husband wants to get accomplished happens in a few years tops. I know I will be missing the climate and diversity of the south. *tear*
Anyway, here are pics of our trip.
|My boys are seasoned travelers. lol|
In the rooms, they have this little "cave" area with bunk beds for the kids. My boys LOVED them. We're actually going to upgrade their toddler beds to bunk beds after we move. My youngest (who still crawls into our bed in the middle of the night) stayed in his little bunk the whole night every.single.night we were there! So yea, bunk beds are in the works.
Did I mention, that there is an indoor water park at Great Wolf Lodge?
|The water park was huge!|
Also, in Kansas City, there is this huge shopping district called The Plaza. It is 15 blocks of shopping and more shopping, and eating!! It was this area that sealed the deal for me. Not only because of the shopping and eating, but because the area is modeled after Seville, Spain. The Spanish style architecture is gorgeous, and there are statues and fountains scattered throughout. This gave me a little bit of a nostalgic feeling of my living in Miami days.
|You can't go to Kansas and not eat any Kansas barbeque!|
By the way, the fountain water is pink in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I think they should keep it that way year around!
I look forward to keeping you all posted on the big move. Happy Tuesday!
