Kansas City – 8/30/2014

We came into KC for the weekend to see Holly. This was the last weekend she was going to come into town before she had her baby girl.

Of course we got to see my parents who seemed quite happy!

But it wasn’t meant to be, mom wasn’t actually happy. She has been having issues with the dishwasher for some time now. I convinced them to go shopping with me to pick out a new one. I told mom that I would even install it for her that night. Needless to say, mom was much happier!

I only had minor cursing while I figured out how to install it and it still hasn’t leaked! Then on the way home, we had a random bathroom/meal stop. I found the painting below on the wall in a McDonalds. Makes me want to do that to a wall in my house!

KC – 5/4/2013

We timed this visit to KC for the same time that Holly was going to be in town. We actually didn’t want to see Holly, but we did want to see her baby, David Laughing

It had been a few months since we had seen David and he is growing up soo fast! Lucky for us, he is still cuddly. We spent the whole weekend around the house hanging out with family. Several of my uncles came over to the house for dinner Saturday night and we had a fantastic time visiting wtih everybody.

Marci’s Wedding – 7/28/2012

My cousin Marci got married this weekend. I don’t know what we were thinking, but we came into town with only our cell phones, no camera. So all of the photos are of my immediate family, and none of Marci. The ceremony and reception were nice. We had an added incentive for going to this wedding. First, Holly and David were going to be there.

Second is that my parents were keeping the kids for the week. The kids were excited about this and Danelle and I were looking forward to peace and quite for a week!

I also got a great blackmail photo of Hiatt!

Easter and Prom 4.23

We travled to Kansas City this year to celebrate Easter. Grandma Pat started off the wonderful weekend by taking the kids to the “Ball Museum” (Wonderscope Children’s Museum). They always love going there with grandma to play. Aunt Holly decided to join them.

After the trip to the museum, Hannah had PROM that night for her high school. It seemed like bad timing to have it the Saturday before Easter, but its a public school. Sonora decided to get dressed up with Hannah.

Getting dressed up is only half the fun. When the limo came to pick up the girls at my parents house, Sonora and mom had to get in and see how awesome it is.

Hannah thought that the limo driver was quite attractive, so I managed to snag a few photos of him. I’m a good brother!

You’re looking at some seriously concerned kids! Their dad (thats me) kicked the soccer ball over the fence. They were both judging the jump down and both decided that Corvin could do it. I didn’t let him getting the ball, opting to wait for the neighbors to throw it back over later.

Easter tradition for my parents is always to go over to Uncle Tom and Aunt Theresa’s house to celebrate. I remember doing that every year for as long as I can remember. Their current house has a nice stocked lake behind it. So after all of the eggs were found, the fishing began.

And finally, we ended up back at my parents house to do one final egg hunt.
