The Paris of the Plains!

We're off to Kansas City for the long weekend to visit Chris and Kristin, see the sights of Olathe, Kansas City, and surrounding metropolitan areas and points of interest! I'm sure there will be a good ration of BBQ in our future, plus some good old fashioned "kickin' it."

Kansas City is sometimes called "the Paris of the Plains," as it has more boulevards than any city except Paris. It is also called "the City of Fountains," as it has more than 200, more than any other city except Rome. It's also known as the BBQ Capitol of the World.

For the first time in our many years together, we are sharing luggage. Normally I'm against it, but as we aren't going to be traveling around from place to place, I've decided to give it a try. We travel together so rarely, it's fun to have a travel companion! All our worldly belongings for the looong weekend are in this one tiny bag. Hopefully it makes it to Kansas with us, or it's going to be an interesting weekend!

Big thanks to Art and Carolyn for high-tailin' it back to Boise so soon after their first housesitting adventure to watch Miss G for us, we really appreciate the rare opportunity to travel together!

Au revoir, mes amis!
