We left around 9 am on Thursday morning and got to KC around lunch time. We checked into our hotel...a Homewood Suites since it has separate rooms - a bonus with a baby and got something quick to eat. Cole was big time on this trip and got his meals ordered for him at restaurants!

We stopped back at the hotel for a bit and realized it was time to figure out what we wanted to do for dinner. We wanted to go to Oklahoma Joe's BBQ, faught traffic and the rain to get there, only to find out that the line was super long and not moving. Change of plans! We had passed a place called Spin! Neopolitan Pizza and decided to go there instead. Wow! Was that a good decision! We over-ordered, of course, and got a pizza each and a flat bread & dips appetizer. Cole got his own cheese pizza too. It was so delicious! We didn't want to stop eating! Good thing we had left-overs that we brought home and had for lunch this weekend. :)
Friday we slept in as long as Cole would let us, had breakfast at the hotel and got ourselves ready to go. We had to take extra time to get all of our treasures from Trader Joe's well iced for our drive home!
We visited a Home Decorators store and have our eye on a few things we'd love to get from there and stopped at a Tile Shop because we have dreams of doing tile in our showers. Then we went up to downtown Kansas City (much bigger than I expected), and walked around the City Market.
That wrapped up our sightseeing in Kansas City since we had to drive back that afternoon and didn't want to get back too late for the little man. We realized it was our first little trip with just us three! Every other time we've gone somewhere, we've met up with our family. So that was a neat experience for us. Plus, we feel like it's important to get outside what we think are the easiest things to do with Cole (aka stay at home), and do new, fun adventures with him in tow!
