In August we were able to go to Kansas City to visit Jeremy's sister, Melanie and brother-in-law Ashwin. Jeremy's parents, grandparents, two aunts and cousin also made the trek. So it was a mini family reunion so to speak. Luckily for us, there was a high heat warning for the duration of time we were there. WOW, was it ever hot! But we still managed to have a really good time.
We visited the Hallmark museum where we saw how packaging ribbons are made and learned the history of a good hallmark card.
Watching old Hallmark commercials.
We also went to the Federal Reserve and learned all about money.
And of course we had to see the Yankees play the Royals while they were in town.
A foul ball was hit right towards us, we didn't get the ball but we did get some good pictures with it.
It was so hot at the game the number from the jersey Jeremy wore was marked in his t-shirt with sweat.
Other pics from the games...
My BFF April and her husband Ben were even able to come for a day and hang out with us. I didn't get any pictures with them though. We had fun window shopping at the Cabella's.
All in all we really liked our visit to the Midwest! It was really green and had tons of trees, which was a pleasant surprise. I thought it would be a lot of flat corn fields. I wish I had done a better job of taking pictures of our various activities but I didn't. Next time I guess!
