Fantastic Weekend

Yes, the flooding was happening the opposite direction of where we were headed on Friday. We did see lots of flooding on our way to Kansas City. We were near lots of tornadic weather and torrential downpour.

It was a great weekend! We arrived in Kansas City around 6:30 and checked in to our hotel. We met my brother at Dave and Busters and had dinner. We watched the kid play all of these games to obtain as many tickets as possible. When he was done, he bought Josh a little Chiefs memento. After dinner we grabbed some ice cream from Cold Stone Creamery and headed back to our hotel in the rain.

On Saturday we went to the City Market and walked around for about an hour. The kid bought some zucchini bread from a local vendor and Josh bought some local salsa. After walking around and wishing we lived there, we headed to the Corner Cafe and ate a delicious breakfast. When we decided to waddle out of the cafe, we decided to go grab some groceries for the big game. I made homemade potato salad and pasta salad and Josh marinated the steaks. We spent the day at Josh's brother's loft. It is located downtown near the City Market. It's very nice!

After a long day, we headed back to the hotel to turn in. We woke up around 5:45 on Sunday morning to get packed up and head down to the stadium. We are the crazy ones who wait in line for a good parking space. We were about the sixth car back in our lane. Crazy, I know. After the gates opened, we got the grill going. One of our local friends decided to join us. He works for the Chiefs taking tickets and decided to stop by and eat before he headed in. The stadium is under major construction, so walking in was a b*tch. It took forever!

Anyway, to make a long story short, we lost. Ohio State also lost this weekend. It was a bad weekend for football. That's okay. I got to spend some much needed time with my boys before my surgery tomorrow. I am getting a little anxious. I am sure all will turn out just fine.

Well, I am going to enjoy the time I have off. I am planning to do lots of housework and laundry today, so I won't have to worry about it later in the week. I plan on reading blogs all day as well.

Have a great week and I will check in with all of you later.

It sounds like you have all the same stores and restaurants as we do in California.
