Special Saturday Visitors

The past few months have been very busy for the Souths so when we get a chance to stay in town, we try and take advantage of it. We started the weekend off with Jake and Jennifer for our last Royals game of our 2010 package. Needless to say, the game was a bore but Jake had an idea, lets go to the boats. Not my idea of fun, I was ready to go home and so was Jenn and what I thought would be a sure "No" from Justin, backfired on me. I said that if Justin would call his mom to see if Kaden could just stay the night, I would go. He called. She said yes. And off we went to the boats. In the end, it was a good idea-I won and now I won't be going back for another 3 years!

On Saturday just after noon our special visitors pulled up. Papa Tom and Grandma Sara were here! We quickly loaded up and headed down to the City Market where we grabbed lunch at Winslow's BBQ. Papa Tom use to eat here all the time when he was driving the train from Carthage to KC and wanted to stop in for some of their famous wings (not listed on the menu). After eating lunch we decided to walk around for awhile. Kaden was in awe of a certain guitar player and could have sat there all day if we would have let him. Instead, he got a few quick booty shakes and we moved on. After we left City Market we headed down to 18th and Vine where we visited The Negro League's Baseball Museum and The Jazz Museum. My dad is a sucker for museums and just mentioning one, is a sure fire way to get him to KC! Unfortunately, photography was prohibited in the museum so we weren't able to get any shots of our tour.

After the tours, we headed home for nap time. Kaden went down around 2:45 and at 3:45 he was still awake talking to himself in his crib. Papa Tom wanted to get him up but I said to give him until 4:30, he would go down but at 4:15 Papa Tom came downstairs with K-Man in his arms. He had a pretty good rest but was too afraid he would miss something fun with Papa Tom and Grandma Sara here.

My parent's had just celebrated their 30th wedding anniversary, Grandma Sara's birthday is on Monday and Grand Parents Day was last weekend so we wanted to do something fun/special/different for dinner. We had made reservations at Fogo De Cho earlier in the week but with Monkey not having a nap, we knew we would be pressing our luck. Instead we ordered Papa Keno's and rented the Mizzou game which turned out to be a great decision. Kaden got to play with Grandma Sara and Papa Tom. Justin and Papa Tom got to watch the MU game-everyone was happy.

At halftime, Kaden had to say bye-bye to Papa Tom and Grandma Sara and when it was time for the hug, he went straight to Grandma Sara. Thanks for coming up, Kaden loves spending time with you guys!
