We're baaaaaaaaaaack!

Whew! That was one fun, exhausting vacation!

For those of you who don't know, we spent a few days in Kansas City for the 4th of July. We crammed a LOT of entertainment into just 2 days, but it really was a great trip. I took lots of photos and plan to have some formatted and/or scrapped to share soon.

Some of the highlights -

Meeting up with Jim & Annette again... we've been friends with them for years. I actually met Annette online several years ago (we're both scrappers), and our families always have the best time together. Unfortunately, it had been at least 3-4 years since the last time we got together. Still, it was awesome spending time hanging out with them. We went to a parade and then to their house for a cook-out.

Royals Vs Mariners... I love baseball! Totally fun. We were afraid that the rain would put a damper on the evening, but there ended up only being a 15 min. delay. Unfortunately though, the rain ruined the post-game fireworks display. We'd heard that this was supposedly the biggest show in KC, so we were really looking forward to it. After a couple of failed attempts to get them going, they apologized and sent us home with rain checks for a future ball game.

Worlds of Fun... I could NOT have been any hotter had I tried. It was around 100 degrees outside, but the kids had a BLAST. Taylor rode just about everything he could find.

Rainforest Cafe... totally overpriced, but the kids love it. Completely capped off our little mini vacation!

And now we're home. I've got the 2nd load of laundry going and a stack of scrapbook projects that I need to get busy on. Not much time for resting this weekend!

Finally, it's time again for another Sweet Shoppe From Our Blog To Yours prompt. This week's challenge is a quiz... which Star Wars character are you? Considering I've never SEEN any of the SW movies, this doesn't mean much to me. But I'm doing it because I want those Sweet Rewards points! LOL!

have a good sense of humor,
even when those around you don't.
You can hold your own in a fight,
but prefer it when things
don't get too exciting.

Sounds like you had a great time. And I really think you should watch the Star Wars movies. Seriously, you would like them more than you think.
