Ice Skating

Ice Skating

A foot of snow fell last week and another foot fell here in Kansas City last night, but luckily it slowed down and the roads were cleared off enough for us to go ice skating on Saturday! Even little Jonas went. It was so SO exhausting (because it was ICE … Read the rest

Legoland Discovery Center

Lego Discovery Center

If you’ve been reading for awhile now, then you know how awesome my grandpa (“Poppy”) is. He continued this awesomeness by telling us he’d buy us tickets to anywhere Eliza wanted to go in Kansas City and that he’d watch Jonas while we took her there. So. Awesome. Eliza picked … Read the rest

Building Topper Photo Walk

Building Topper Photo Walk

I’m calling this a photo walk, even though it was actually a photo ride because I took the scooter. Usually when Megan or I or both of us do photo walks, it’s to capture specific life documentation or is just a fun exercise to photograph whatever looks interesting. This time, … Read the rest

Neighborhood Photo Walk

Neighborhood Photo Walk

We’ve shared bits of our neighborhood in a post about our favorite neighborhood pizza place and bookstore and we took you on a walk through the quirky residential part of our neighborhood, but the whole of Westport isn’t that pretty. We’ve got great local shops and really pretty sections, … Read the rest

Succotash

At Succotash

We love supporting local businesses, but we’re also not morning people. So unless we want to walk around the corner to a chain breakfast place, we’re for going out to brunch. One of our favorite spots in Kansas City for brunch is Succotash, a quirky breakfast and lunch restaurant … Read the rest

It’s rainy and gloomy here in Kansas City today, so we thought it would be a good day to share cheery flower pictures. Megan and I love doing photo walks as dates, but in September I went to a local park and rose garden by myself to de-stress. And wow, … Read the rest

I Have Seen the Future

World's Fair

For my birthday present, I asked if my mom would take me to the Decorative Arts at the World’s Fairs exhibit at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. Our little family goes to the Nelson quite a bit, as it’s about five minutes away from our house and is FREE. … Read the rest

City Market

City Market

The thing I miss most about living in our old loft was its location. Sure, our location now in Westport is great. We’re walking distance to pretty much every type of non-chain restaurant there is, an art supply store, a ton of local coffeeshops, a bunch of bookstores, a hardware … Read the rest

Google Fiber Space

Google Fiber Space

In April, we got super excited because Google was laying their Fiberoptic Cable in our neighborhood. Now we’re able to preregister for Google Fiber: Kansas City, KS and Kansas City, MO are the first cities in the United States to have a city-wide broadband connection from a fiber-optic … Read the rest
