Beah Visit 2008

Beah and the kiddos come for an annual visit usually in August, although this year we smartly changed that to September. Really helped to have the not-100-degree weather when we were at the Zoo! Anyhoo, a few shots from the trip can be found below.

And yes, as usual: I cried like a baby when they left.

On the playground at the KC Zoo:

This was typical of our day: Mahni in rapturous awe of the animals, Dylan crying and petrified of the animals.

Except for the sheep for some reason, which Dylan thought were dogs (he kept calling them "JoJo!").

Yay for Train Time! Best part of a visit to the Zoo :)

And it's all fun until someone loses a shoe. While still on the train ride. When the train made a stop (much much later), Hubs and the train conductor had to go back after it.
And that concluded our time at the Zoo.

Spent the first evening at home. Beah and the kids crashed out in the chair.

First thing the next morning: Picture Time with Josh Solar! For those who missed out from my food post, clicky HERE to see the cute babies on Josh's blog.

That afternoon we went shopping, and tried on a few costumes:

After the costume shop we grabbed some ice cream, and then walked off the calories at the rest of The Legends shopping. They had a yellow brick road there!
There are a ton of pictures of our time at the fountain @ The Legends - yeah, for a reason. The kiddies LOVED it, we spent a long time there playing. Which was fine by me; it was fun to shoot them playing in the fountain, too.
We had dinner at the T-Rex restaurant. Hit and miss - the kids loved it, and were simultaneously scared out of their minds.

We made cake! Yummy cake! Even though we accidentally put in too much butter...

No trip to Nemmie and Scott's is complete until someone poses with a Jayhawk. Like the Jayhawk flag hanging on the wall in the man cave, all college-dorm-like (reminder to self: find a flagpole and get that sucker up outside).

Sadly that is it, the time went by waaaaay too quickly. But! Beah and Mahnster are back in December to hit up The Nutcracker in KC, which will be a blast.
