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!
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.
This is us at our two breakfasts...day one was sliced bananas on fresh whipped cream and graham cracker crumbs; chocolate zucchini gingerbread; sausage links; and multigrain blueberry pancakes with warm syrup. Day two was a strawberry/mango frappe; glazed pork chop; and peach pecan croissant french toast. Delicious!
This sheep display was outside a church around the corner, and it made me smile.

plaza area; I thought it was sweet
After golfing (for Austin) and a pedicure (for me), we showered and walked to Chuy's Mexican restaurant for lunch. It was AMAZING!!! If you have one near you, you HAVE to go. It was so delicious. Then we walked to a movie theater to see the Solo Star Wars movie, which was really fun.
Then it was time for the Royals game! Right when we walked in a tent was selling hot dogs for $1, so obviously we each got one. We had matching shirts and hats, which reminded us of our honeymoon baseball game almost 7 years ago:
The game was so fun! Later in the game Austin had his customary bratwurst and I had pizza (I really wanted nachos but they didn't have any, boo!). We stuck around for the whole game even though we lost 15 - 0 because there was a promised fireworks show at the end. It was so fun! I LOVE fireworks, and it was a perfect evening.
The next morning after our incredible bed and BREAKFAST, we did a sealing session at the KC Temple, hit up Applebeep's for lunch, and headed home. Our parents took turns watching the kids (thank you thank you THANK YOU) and sent us these cute pics while we were gone:

It was a memorable, relaxing, super fun trip, and I already want to do something like that again. I love Austin so much! He's the best! It's so nice having our children at ages that don't stress us out as much when we leave them.
