Only good things happened

those are the perfect weekends aren't they? So Friday night the kids went to their designated locations and my hubs and I went on our date. We saw The Ugly Truth which was too funny! Then headed to dinner at the Outback, yum, one of our favorites! They have a new drink that was absolutely divine..... Huckleberry Sweet Tea, it's a Firefly Sweet Tea Vodka and Country Style Lemonade with a splash of huckleberry flavor...... absolutely my new favorite!

Saturday we woke up, cleaned up, and headed to Kansas City for the River Market

I don't know how it happened but I'm pretty sure that we picked the hottest day of the year to do this, maybe not so smart on my part. Here's my husband when we first got there, I reminded him that these pictures would be on my blog so he took the grumpy look off his face and replaced it with a smile! lol

I have been so excited to come to this market, it's something I've wanted to do for years. It was pretty much everything I imagined! There were many restaurants, a wine tasting, delicious seafood, fresh flowers, lots of veggies, fruits, clothes, jewelry, purses.... the list goes on!

There were these massive grills everywhere, people were cooking up huge turkey legs, brats, burgers, all you can think of.....

This photo may seem silly but I took it special for my hubs, not sure if I've ever said it but his name is Sage...

Here are just some random shots as we were walking around

Isn't this a huge load of corn????!!!!!

And what about the size of these pickles!

Baby boy did amazing during our adventure. It was 100 degrees outside and that was just the base heat, no humidity or heat index included in that.... it sure was feeling like 120 out!

There was also a museum for the Arabia Steamboat so we went in and enjoyed the air conditioning!

Just a couple of shops that were attached to the museum...

And finally we were heading back to the car...

We don't go into the city very often so I wanted to take advantage of being there and check out the sights. I didn't take many pictures as I was distracted by so many things. I'm a big time country girl so the city to me is just amazing. This to me is the true image of city, it's those hot dog stands on the corner!

Kansas City is The City of Fountains

If you google the city of fountains you'll come up with lots of beautiful pictures.... I sorta forgot to take pictures as we were being tourists, sorry!

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend, mine was lovely! Now to face the dreaded Monday.... this is my last week with both kiddos at home, the big kid starts kindergarten on the 17th!

I love KC! We always have such a blast there, but I've never been to the market! I'll definitely have to do that some day- I love supporting local farmers and people who make things by hand. Looks like you guys had fun!
