Kansas city weekend

We just returned from a VERY quick trip to Kansas city with the Bentons. We drove to Dallas on Thursday morning and stayed the night with the Bentons. Friday morning we all loaded up and headed to Kansas city. We took 2 cars, guys and toddlers in one car and girls and babies in the other. The guys were able to stop for the multiple toddler potty breaks and the girls could stop for babies to be fed without us all having to make multiple stops for each other. We all made it to KC in great time around 5:30pm. We were just in time for the Niswanger twin's first birthday party!

Madison had a blast playing catch with this ball. She would throw it up in the air and then run over and get it...repeat 4,000 times.

After Emory's party we headed back to pack up so we could leave for Dallas early Sunday morning. We made it back to Dallas on Sunday evening. This morning (Monday) we headed back to Houston where we will be for just 4 nights before we turn around and leave again!

We had such a wonderful weekend with all of our KC friends, even though we were sad that a few were missing. It's always nice to have a reason to get together. It's crazy how much our group has grown in the past 3 years with KIDS! We have all had at least 1 kid, some 2 some 3. Some have moved away and some are in the process of moving but when we get back together it always seems as if no time has passed! Such great friendships that we will forever cherish!
