May 4, 2016 | D & I decided that we needed another day-date, where we can just relax and spend some time together. The morning was lazy, but we knew we wanted some good BBQ and to attend a Royals game. If you get to KC Joe’s before 11:30 AM the line isn’t bad and moves pretty quick, so we had our food. After a leisure drive downtown to the stadium, we had plenty of time to relax and eat/drink in the parking lot. I might have done some crochet too (livin’ it UP I tell you)…but a couple beers later it was time to head in. And after the first inning we were losing by…six? The shade was so cold, and it was a school-day-at-the-K, so kids literally everywhere. D’s favorite part was when Hosmer went up to bat all of the girls squealed… 🙂
We still managed to stay for most of the game, but eventually we were cutting it close for daycare pick-up time. We grabbed E and made our way home for some backyard play. She grabbed her beloved tutu, and a random winter hat, and we were outside. Toddler fashion at its finest!
April 9, 2016 | The 2nd Annual “Rock the Belleview” was beginning early at 7 AM, but seeing as that is at least a 30-min drive from our house, we knew we wouldn’t arrive anywhere close to that time. Instead we chose to arrive just a few minutes before the fun was over. Toddlers, right? But we still got to witness the O Family and their FIVE kiddos. The boys were all about the beer keg, and asked us about 10 times if we wanted more beer. In fact, I’m pretty sure they were sneaking some and saying “YUM!” Did I mention it was also FREEZING outside?
Since we were up North, we figured why not head to a park that’s new to E (kill some time), and try to phone some friends to meet up for lunch! The A-clan are often game for a gathering, which meant the E-girls were going to be reunited for some fun
That night was a date night with the Dinner Lab. The food was absolutely incredible this round, with a Game of Thrones theme. Little did we know at the time, but this would be our final meal…since DL had to shut down. BOO!
February 20, 2016 | As if hosting a birthday party wasn’t enough, D and I made plans to attend this super-tiny-venue concert by one of my all time favorites, Glen Phillips. WOW. I believe the chapel sat 70? And there was just a single mic, he could see all of us clearly, and there was this ease of conversation that I just loved. We got there a little late so we were in the last row, but I definitely hope we get to see another show there. Date night!
