And For the Next Three Days....

So the day after we get home from New York we head down south to Gardner, KS for the annual Kansas City Balloonfest. Unfortunately Mike was on beeper call that day and lo and behold they called him in literally the minute we had our chairs set up and ready to sit down. So the girls and I were the only ones to see it. We have never seen the one in Albuquerque and I am quite certain that this doesn't even come close, but it was still pretty amazing.

 
Sunday was the annual Celebration at the Station. I have always loved this but we've missed the past two years because we've been out of town. It is held downtown at Union Station. There are concessions, games, things to see, the Kansas City Symphony performs and the coup de gras a fantastic fireworks show. We couldn't have asked for better weather. For about an hour it was pretty hot but then it clouded over and I thought it was going to rain, but the temperatures were great.
 
And this brings us to Memorial Day. Our ward has an annual luau at Shawnee Mission Park and we were finally able to attend this year. There was a huge cooked pig lots of salads and desserts. One of our ward members is a professional DJ so he kept us rockin' and then we had an actual fire dancer from Fiji that has a show down in Branson that performed for us.
