We woke the kids up with an exciting surprise. We were spending the day at Crown Center!
We started the day at the Hallmark Visitor's Center...
Next stop, Kaleidoscope! Here they are about to enter Kaleidoscope and fill those paper bags with very special items that I will be picking up and throwing away for the next month. (Hey, I HATE clutter...)
They had a blast at Kaleidoscope, to say the very least. I am not so sure Nurse Boy felt the same way; with all the kids, parents, and grandparents pushing their way through each activity. The boys also got to make cards for our soldiers. Way cool!
Well, a day at Crown Center with the kids is not complete until you have clogged your arteries while receiving the WORST costumer service in the state of Missouri at Fritz's. The kids loved the train that delivers your fat laced burgers. My stomach did not!
Don't they look happy?! Maybe those overpriced meals are worth every penny after all.
Here are their faces when the train delivered their meal.
Next stop, the Crayola Store.
We also visited their latest exhibit.
After all of this fun, we stopped to watch an awesome puppet show. Nurse Boy went to get us coffee and came back with 5 cones instead. He claims the cones cost the same as the 2 coffees. However, I am not sure Sweet Pea's shirt, shorts, or stroller will ever be the same again.
On our way to the car, we stopped to let the kids run in the fountains. Dimples is pictured above. He said today was one of his "most favorite days EVER." Bruiser agreed.
Finally, some gratitude!!!
