Vacation - Day One (yes! pictures included...)

Well, I have been gone long enough and I can't procrastinate these posts any longer. I am back from vacation and it was a loooong one! Much needed though. I told all of you I would post pictures, probably against my better judgement, but whatever. You will not be seeing any pictures of myself, but you will get to see pictures of my family, Josh and the kid. The trip was fantastic, so I thought I would do a day by day play per post. This is Day One.

We decided to stay in Kansas City overnight and leave from there on Saturday morning. We drove to Kansas City on Friday and met up with Josh's brother and wife and my brother. Josh's brother and his wife live in downtown KC, while my brother lives in Lenexa. We all met downtown at Minsky's, which is our favorite place for pizza. There was plenty of beer, food, laughter and excitement that night. The kid wrapped his retainer in his napkin and forgot to put them back on after eating. We got about one block from the restaurant before freaking out. I called the restaurant and the kid was able to go back in and dig through the trash for his retainer. Lucky for him, it was right on top. Yes, lucky for him....

After dinner, we headed back to the hotel and went to bed early. We would have to get up at 5:00 a.m. to go and pick up our rental car at 6 a.m. And I do have stories to tell about Sunday, so I will leave you with these pictures I took. I tried to document as much as I could on the trip. Sometimes you just forget to get the camera out, you know?


My Nature's Choice Pizza at Minsky's


From left to right: my brother, Josh, Josh's brother, Josh's brother's wife, the Kid. The couple in the back ground was on a blind date. It was painfully obvious to us all. Painful being the key word here folks!

Two words, HELLZ YEAH! lol I just don't think the farmers are going to go for a 4 dollar coffee and an 8 dollar cheese plate! lol

Now if you served 2 dollar coffee and a 3 dollar deep fried pork tenderloin....Then you've got a winner!

Well, atleast in Kansas.....
