Families Are Forever

                                                          Families Are Forever

     We just had the sweetest experience this week. All of our children and grandchildren came to Missouri to spend some time with us.It was so great to be  to together, it doesn't happen often enough since we are all so spread out.
     Most of them got here Friday night. Saturday we spent at the Crown Center in downtown Kansas City. It was built by Hallmark, (hence the CROWN center.) Since Kansas City is the home of Hallmark Cards. There are many places for families to spend time together. The little kids loved Kaleidescope, which is an area where they can make their own greeting cards, create a puzzle, paint glow in the dark pictures, make gift boxes, all kinds of creative fun.
    Then we went to lunch at Fritz. Sounds weird, but another fun place there. It is set up like a railroad car, and the food is delivered on a rail system overhead, dropped on a platform, then lowered to your table. The kids got such a kick out of it.
   After lunch we walked across the street to the Union Pacific Depot. It is a beautiful building, and they have a wonderful model train exhibit there. We all enjoyed that as well.

 Then back to the Crown Center for Legoland. That is quite the place. I have not been to the one in California, but this was lots of fun. I don't think we even saw everything because everyone was so tired.

  We got to share Lacey's birthday with her that day, and we went to an Italian place, Carrabas for her birthday.
  Sunday we went to church, and to all of the local Church Historical sites, The Temple Lot, the Community of Christ Temple, and our Visitors Center, and Liberty Jail. They seemed to enjoy the sites, I'm sure the little ones weren't as excited, but they do have places to play at the Visitors center. There is such a special feeling there, and it is very family friendly. It was so great to spend time together in this special place.
