Kansas City Lights!!!

One of my favorite places to visit in KC was Union Station. Just beautiful. Casey has a play by play, I am just going to recap through pictures.

A more artistic approach in Cocoland, if you will.

You can thank me later for no dissecting dookey ball talk.

You're welcome.

Huge miniature train set up. The kids loved it.

Mommas and their baby girls.

I hope and pray that Bram grows up to be just like Carter. LOVE that kid. Bram's behavior was amazing all weekend. I really think he wanted to make Carter proud.

Sleepy girl.

OK. Jack wanted to fight. Bram wanted to fight. They just didn't understand the "boundaries" of battle, if you will. It's all fun and games until somebody gets hit in the balls.

Resting after some ass whippin'.

Jack, Jack, Jack, Jack. Weirdest kid on the planet. Sweetest kid on the planet. Snuggliest kid on the planet. Most funny kid on the planet. I wanted to bring this guy home to Texas.

Kiss. Hugs. Sorry.

Run! Be free!

Lainey bug looks a little worried. Run, Laine, run! (tess was sleeping during this crazy fun.)

Can you hear the laughing? Such a wonderful sound!

Love this picture of Lainey. YIKES!!!

My Paul Newman baby boy.

Look at his happy face.

So sleepy.

Bram's new idol, hero, and "best friend." Carter made sure Bram had a KU jersey just like his, this made finding these two much easier during the chaos.


Flirty McFlirtpants. Look at this gorgeous baby.

If I could have a wedding or reception anywhere in the world. It would be Union Station.

Has anyone seen one of these since 1982? Well, if you go to Casey's house, she still has an original. I think she needs to take this puppy on the "Antiques Roadshow." Could be worth something.

That wraps up our Union Station tour. It was one of 556 things we did on Saturday.
I highly recommend Kansas City for a family vacation.

It was NOT at all what I was expecting. Kind of like how people expect all Texans to ride horses and wear cowboy hats, I was expecting super flat plains and The Wizard of Oz.

Lots more to post. I am still unpacking, mopping, dusting, washing, grocery shopping and addressing Christmas cards. Busy Coco.

ta-ta for now!!

Lainey...what a cute baby! And that TM...she has such a doll face! OK, that's it...Hagen's hair is growing out surfer style. Love all 3 of the boys' hair! Do I let the sides grow out too over the ears? This has ALWAYS been my hangup...I can't stand hair over the ears...help me!

Love the pics ... and the Coco narration!

The Soladay Family said...

Amazing pics! Seriously, what type of camera do you have, and have you been taking photography classes without telling anyone!?

Sassafrass Jane said...

Looks Mama Sue and I might have a Jack & Bram battle over you.
Cracking up over the fighting pics. How funny are they?!
I also would like a Sass-sized Tessie Mayes teal cardigan original. Is this possible?
I hope Bram grows up to be just like Carter, too. Then I'll have options for later in life. (Creepy?)

Great pictures! SO glad you had a good time. I loved reading the quotes too, how did you keep track of them all? Very funny!

starnes family said...

Can't stop laughing about:

Kiss. Hug. Sorry.

Oh gosh, I miss YOU! I am sorry I have not been by in what seems like days. Tomorrow, it's me, a cup of coffee and your last few posts. And I am sorry but I do see the resemblance between you and Maggie, even before you said something a long time ago. But you so would have paired much better and more hotter with Christian Bale in Batman than she ever did. So true.
