Well, it is getting close to kitchen tear-out time. This Thursday to be exact. Then I get to attack the walls and get everything clean so the cabinets can come back in with their nice new coat of paint. But that is not what this post is supposed to be about so I'll get to the point.
We had been talking about taking this trip for a while. My daughter's birthday is next week so we decided to just go ahead and do it. My sis-in-law and her daughter went with me and my daughter to Kansas City for the day. It is about a two hour drive from where we live. There are several stores there that we don't have here. Both of our daughters are into American Girl dolls so that was the first stop after lunch. (This is a picture heavy post so beware.)
We started out at Five Guys burger place. We had never been there before and I had heard they were the best so we decided to give it a go. It was very yummy but we sure could have split the fries at least 4 ways instead of just two. It was very conveniently located next to the American Girl Store.
|This isn't the greatest picture. My daughter was having a hard time getting my camera to work right for her. I think the problem was the light shining in the window behind us.|
|The girl's needed to put their drinks away and get their dolls out to take with them.|
|Here is my niece getting a star sticker from one of the employees. My daughter decided she was a little too old for stickers, I think, as she declined when the salesgirl asked her if she wanted one.|
|Checking out some of the displays.|
|My daughter had birthday money to spend so she decided on getting a matching shirt for herself and her doll. This is her watching the sales lady making them.|
|Girls with their "loot".|
|Such a fun store. I got a few things but forgot to take pictures. I'll have to share later on one of my kitchen posts.|
After getting directions from a Costco employee while waiting for my chip purchase to be made, we went here. One of my all time favorite places to shop. I'm sad that we don't have one closer.
|My niece had fun shopping with her kid size cart.|
|This is the girls pretending they were having a tea party.|
|And another. It was so cute.|
Have a blessed day,
