Funny video.

This video is pretty funny- about a mom with two young children and her internal conversation she has with people who don't have any kids yet. Ha.

Babymoon to KC part 2.

On our second day we started off by heading to Sea Life. It was neat to see all the different aquariums! I had a brief stint when I was in Jr. High where I thought it would be cool to be a marine biologist, but that was very short lived. Still, there is something about the ocean that is super cool. 

Here we really got to experiment with different camera settings, in dealing with glares from the glass and fast moving fish. I felt pretty good about using different settings, especially in my first big time using it!

After Sea Life, we walked around Crown Center shopping center for awhile. They had many unique stores, including a Crayola store that I had to stop in!

Then we headed to Union Station. I'm glad we went, but it was probably our least favorite part of the trip. It was unique, but we had to pay for parking, and there wasn't very much to do inside, and almost everything you had to pay extra for.

We did go to a show at the Planetarium about space, which wasn't the best, but oh well. 

We went to another movie, which is very unlike us to see two in one weekend, but very fun to do on vacation. We headed back to Country Club Plaza and saw When The Game Stands Tall. This was also a good one!

We ended the day with a big dinner at Red Lobster. We had a gift card, so we even got drinks (for us, that means anything other than water- we tried their homemade peach and strawberry lemonade) and dessert!

We had a great time and are so glad we were able to go!

(Also, I am 32 weeks pregnant today!)

Babymoon to KC part 1.

This weekend Kley and I went to Kansas City for our anniversary/babymoon trip. It was so great! We went down Thursday night, and it was so nice to have a whole weekend with uninterrupted time together. It was like a really long date- everyone should do it! I am so glad we went and got to spend some great quality time together.

Friday morning/afternoon we headed to the Kansas City Zoo. We decided to bear it even though the feels like temp was a little over 100. I am glad we went, although we didn't get super great pictures because I don't think the animals liked the heat either. They were either hiding or just laying around. 

When we first arrived, Kley really wanted to go to the African animal show, which was way in the back of the park, and the map was deceiving in how far away it actually was. Unfortunately, it was a bit of a let down- super short with only a snake, turtle, and a chicken-type animal. Later in the day we went to the sea lion show and the bird show, and both of those were good!

The polar bear was swimming laps.

I liked trying to experiment with different camera settings, since we recently got a new camera

We both thought it was funny that this one turtle was sitting right on top of the food.

Unfortunately, the giraffes (my favorite), were not cooperating at all. This giraffe was sitting in the corner with his back turned. 

The chimpanzees weren't doing much either. We were really confused as to why this one was wearing a glove. And they have really ugly butts. 

Again, more laying around. In some exhibits, you couldn't see any animals at all, so I'm glad we got to see a few close up!

The sea lion show!

Kley on the tiger trail.

This was the best I could get. 

Kley really loves koi fish.

Bird show!

After the zoo, we headed to the Country Club Plaza shopping center. It was super nice! Very ritzy. Our car looked like it was in shambles compared to the fancy cars parked there, with all the name brand stores. We stopped at Coldstone for a treat.

After walking around for a bit, we headed to the theatre there to watch The Giver. We had both read the book before, and we thought it was very well done. Would recommend!

We ended the day with dinner at The Cheesecake Factory. It was a great day!
