KC Trip: Science City

We met up with some friends while in Kansas City and enjoyed an afternoon at Science City.  It is a little old for Jackson but he had a blast playing with the guys.  Of course the guys had a blast running around like big kids.

The next morning it was time to head home and Jackson helped load the car.

We had a great trip to Kansas City and would definitely go back when the boys are older.

KC Trip: Zoo

Even though it was extremely hot while we were in Kansas City there was one cool morning.  So we took advantage of the nice weather and headed to the Kansas City Zoo # 5 on our Summer Bucket List

What a fun place to check out!  We also made a stop at the candy store Jackson choose Mini M&M’s and Reese Pieces.  Good combo if you ask me!
