When people ask where I’m from I always say “Kansas City”…but the truth is, I live 20 miles outside of the city and don’t leave my suburban bubble nearly enough. That’s why I was excited when Sarah asked if we wanted to adventure downtown with her crew to see some of the KC murals that have been all over Insta lately. Bonus: we got to ride in Sarah’s sweet new minivan. Note to self: next time have the husbands transfer the car seats the night before. Because let me tell you…that was a sight to see!
Our first stop was at 1919 Baltimore. Cutest mural ever? I think so.
The cutest models too…but I’m a little biased.
Don’t be fooled. Nash loves posing for pictures!
Stop number 2 was a legit mural. It was on top of a parking garage by Barkley…and so big we didn’t even know how to photograph it! The kids looked like ants!
If there was ever a picture that nailed their personalities…
“Hey kids, stand by this orange wall and hold hands. But don’t jump in that giant puddle.”
Or do. Thanks Nash.
Also, I love Brantley’s reaction!!!
And you know once one does it…
Next stop was a picnic at the Liberty Memorial. We laughed because Sarah and I packed almost identical lunches for the kids–all the way down to the peanut butter and strawberry jam uncrustables. #momlife
Before heading home we walked up to the memorial and checked out the lovely KC skyline. When I asked Nash if it was cool he said, “yeah”. He was right.
It was a great morning being tourists in our town…AND we made it home before naps! I’ll call that a win!
