A Saturday afternoon

I woke up yesterday morning to this:


The flowers and candy are from Shane. The bear is from BB. When you squeeze the bear's paw, it plays "Can't Get Enough of You Baby" by Smash Mouth while a rose that the bear is holding spins and lights up "I Love You" and "You're the Greatest". It's cute.

Yesterday afternoon Wendy, Pete, Shane, BB and I went to the WWI museum in Kansas City. None of us had been before. It was really nice - very informative without being boring. They had a lot of artifacts from the war from all over the world. According to one of the museum employees, the items in the museum represent only about 20% of their total collection.

In addition to the museum, we went up to the top of this:

liberty memorial

That's the Liberty Memorial (complete with Shane's head). If I were a better citizen, I could tell you some specifics about it. All I know is that it's part of the WWI museum and was built in 1926.

It was a beautiful day. The view of downtown Kansas City was really cool.

Pete took a picture of my little family.

After the museum, we headed to Hooters for an early dinner. Yum.

It was a good day.

I went to the top of that monument when I visited there in high school. :) It's pretty neat.

What a great family pic! You know, I never realized exactly where you live. I lived in the KC 'burbs for a couple of years in the early '80s. The art museum was great and they used to have free symphony concerts on its lawn.

I'm really interested in WW1 history. I love the book "Birdsong" by Sebastian Faulk - it is set in various times, but mostly during the war. It is very touching - the part where he returns home from being a soldier to find life going on as normal, is one of the most thought-provoking pieces of writing I've ever read.

Glad you had a great valentines day (so long ago now).
