Today has been a long, tiring, fun, filling day. I woke up at 5:45 this morning to start my trip from Boston to O’hare and finally Kansas City. I grew up mostly in KC before moving to Colorado before high school, so I have lots of great memories and family here! The boys came to go to a basketball game and the girls came to shop and eat cupcakes on the plaza. We started the afternoon together with what else? Ribs! We were all starving. Then we shopped and anxiously awaited the beautiful plaza lights to come on. Some years growing up we drove to the big city for a slice of cheesecake as big as our heads and a ride on the Cinderella horse drawn carriages. I was so happy to see they were still there and with glittery hooves this time! I am so ready to go to bed now. Off to spend some time with more family and sports tomorrow in Manhattan!
