Kansas: Memorial Day at Liberty Memorial

After -- get this -- more BBQ, we were off to tour Kansas's Union Station, which was recently redone and quite beautiful. We also went up to the National World War I Monument, Liberty Memorial...on Memorial Day! In addition to the large tower, there is a WWI museum, theater, and reflecting pond. The monument is inscribed with “In honor of those who served in the world war in defense of liberty and our country.” As it was opened in 1926 they could use "the" with world war. Alas, we didn't have time to get over to the VFW, as we had a plane to catch. But not before Kristin did her best to get Chris to smile for the camera...

The Liberty Memorial tower: It's so big....! You can ride an elevator up to the top...if you arrive before 4:15 that is. Alas, we did not, as our tour was a little unplanned.
