K.C.

A few weekends ago, Dustin and I went to Kansas City.
He had a medical conference and I got to go along.
He went up earlier that day, so I met him when I got off work.
His car was ready to go, including printed out mapquest directions
and his whole collection of Adventures In Odyssey CDs to keep
me company on the 3 hour trip. How sweet!!! :)

While he was at the conference I spent my time sightseeing.
I went to the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art.One of the main exhibits was really neat. There were tons of huge sculptures made completely of old used tires, wires and tools. I really enjoy different things like that and could have spent hours looking at these sculptures. It kinda reminded me of something my Dad would enjoy and maybe even try.
Outside the museum was this sculpture. It's called the Crying Giant.I got lunch at this little downtown joint.
It said "World Famous BBQ" so I knew it had to be good. It really was.
I took it to go and ate here, at this cute little river spot across the street.
Kansas City is called the "City of Fountains."
On my way back to the hotel to meet Dustin, I decided to check some of them out.

By the PlazaFirefighter's Fountain
A tribute to many current and fallen firefighters.
It reminded me of my brother.
It wasn't running that day, so I didn't get to see it it's best.
But it's still cool.

Outside our Hotel
It was a fun weekend.

Pretty cool. Looks like a fun city. I wouldn't ever expect Kansas City to be so cool. I mean...you know how I feel about Springfield! I'm glad you had a little adventure though. Those types of days are my favorite!
