Kansas City Getaway!

Austin and I snuck away for a two-night trip to Kansas City at a quaint bed and breakfast right downtown. It was so delightful! 

Austin was repping Lebron for the first game of the finals, whiiiiich didn't go well (luckily he didn't let it completely ruin our trip haha.)

 Spending three straight days with him was the best. I love that we still never ever get tired of hanging out together, regardless of what we're doing. I am grateful for how much he loves me!

 I loved the hexagon tile in our bathroom. This is the main stairway up to our second floor room.

We got to KC around dinner time, so we checked in and then walked to P.F. Changs down the street. I'm not sure if there could be any more ideal location for us than within walking distance to a Changs. It was perfect. And then, even though we were stuffed, we picked up cheesecake from the Factory across the street. When we got back they were serving hot chocolate and warm homemade cookies. My dream come true.

Plumb Party

My sister came home (to get her wisdom teeth out lol) for a few weeks from San Diego and it was so fun having her around. One night my dad planned an outing for all of us (minus Sam in Utah, bummer) and it was the first time that many Plumbs have been together since Thanksgiving. We had dinner at Tico's (a family favorite, despite me working there), loaded my dad's Father's Day wooden swing into Jack's truck (it took forever), and then played Sorry. Many tears have been shed and fights sparked by Sorry in our history as a family, but I'm happy to say that even though I won both games that night, we all left as friends.

The Plumb pets are thriving

My brother Jack has been doing some pretty cool things lately - he and a buddy sell homemade (delicious!) food at neighborhood markets, and he had his first gig as "Jack 2.0" the dj. He's amazing!

Zoo Summer

We still go to Omaha three mornings a week, so I finally decided to get a zoo pass. My parents got a "grandparent pass" last year thinking we could all go together, but I couldn't go unless one of my parents came with me, so this year I just got our own family pass and my parents come if they are available! 

PopPop treated us to Stingray Beach, an interactive exhibit of different sting rays that you can watch and feed and touch. It was so cool!

He let them choose beanie baby sting rays at the gift shop, which Natalie named "Stingy" (creative, I know) and "Mr. Ray" for Jack's.

As soon as the Desert Dome came into sight, Stockton made a beeline for these double automatic doors where he spent most of his zoo trip last year. It's crazy that after a year he still remembered exactly where they were and loved them just as much. Coincidentally I th…
