The City of Waterless Fountains

I spent the weekend at THE PLAZA (fancy area known for their high end shopping) in Kansas City, Missouri. KC is the city of FOUNTAINS (and statues) - they are EVERYWHERE and usually brimming with water! With the temperature close to freezing, the fountains are empty right now - which was too bad because it would have been that much more beautiful! I flew Midwest Airlines (my new favorite- it was a dream...warm chocolate chip cookies, more recline-able than usual seats, a foot rest, huge leather seats that separate you from the drooling spooky on the other side of a rather large console!)
My parents and I had the best time together- It was so needed! Highlights of our adventures: Beautiful architecture, Skelly Oil Building (where my grandparents met), Christmas shopping (mostly for me- ipod, itrip, clothes, dishes, glasses, steamer, make-up, amazing candle- THANK YOU so very much mom & dad!), famous BBQ (scared burnt ends?), Is KCI also MCI?, Ginger Grace, My dad is so hip- he got himself an ipod!, apple stock, 810 radio station, Who will get Hide the Monkey?, football games, my mid life crisis melt down cry fest / throw up attempt- they handled it well, room service, Curb marathon, TMYLM, The Negro Leagues Baseball Museum (my dad could have lead a tour, he was such an expert!), getting lost in the jazz neighborhood, Winsteads: cold hamburgers, bad service and a surprisingly decent crowd, exploring knee surgery, Tiffany & Co for a certain someone, dog debates (airedale vs. griffs), my slow camera, too many starbucks runs, my new friend Tim the pilot...It was a fantastic getaway! Next time lets do Chicago!
