Exploring KC: Legoland

If you have been traveling through Kansas City with me this summer you know my first stop was T-Bones Baseball.  Our next trip is Legoland Discovery Center located at Crown Center in Kansas City, Missouri.  I was delighted to have my sister, niece, and nephew tag along with myself and girls.  My oldest daughter is 15, and youngest is 11.  My niece is soon to be 6, and nephew is 4.  

No matter what the age...they all had a great time!!


After passing the entrance, we were greeted by Dorothy and Toto from The Wizard of Oz.  I was already in awe just admiring the complex design of Legos that went into each character.  This room had three different stations: Draw It, Dream It, and Build It.  Each station gave you the opportunity to create your own designs and put them into action.

Next, we rode Kingdom Quest.  It is a ride that allows you to "zap" bad Lego characters 
and save the captured princess.  This was a big hit!

What is more adorable than a baby Lego giraffe?

Miniland is a room filled with scenes from Kansas City.  With more than 1.5 million bricks, it is a sight to be seen.  I could have spent hours in here just admiring all of the details.  
Check out the stadiums!  

My niece's favorite area was Lego Friends Heartlake City.  
It features all of the colorful and fun Legos for girls.  
Look at the detail in Lego Friend, Emma's face.  Incredible!! 

This was a special time to visit Legoland.  It was the police minifigures birthday. 
Isn't he cute!  Happy Birthday, buddy!

My nephew loved the Duplo Village area. 
He climbed inside a structure and got buried with bricks.

The Buzz Mountain Challenge tested my girls' patience by trying to make it through a
puzzle without touching the edges.

If you have a kid that loves trains, they will be occupied for hours
with the Train Station Adventure.

Make your own Lego pizza creation at the Pizzeria Station.

Before leaving Legoland, make sure to shop your way through the retail shop.  From backpacks and keychains, to kits and shirts, you will find a souvenir here!

Look at those smiles!!  I think it was a successful trip.  
Another fun outing less than an hour from our house in the Kansas City Area. 

So, if you are looking for a fun family outing, and live in the KC area, head to Legoland Discovery Center.  It's fun for all ages!

Exploring KC: T-Bones Baseball

In the past year, I have ventured into doing some travel posts.  I love documenting and sharing the locations and adventures with my readers.  This year, I'm doing something a little different.  We are exploring a little closer to home...the Kansas City area.  I've lived in Kansas my whole life and there are still so many things that I haven't done yet.  So, come along on my journey and enjoy the stops along the way.  The first stop is T-Bones Baseball. 

The Kansas City T-Bones are a baseball team based in Kansas City, KS.  They are a member of the American Association of Independent Professional Baseball.  Games have been played at their home field at Community America Ballpark since 2003. 

Most games start at 7:05pm from Monday - Saturday and 1:05pm on Sundays.  Arrive early and you can tailgate in the free parking and enjoy pre-game events within the stadium.

  Sit in the seats, bring a blanket for the grass outfield seats, or choose the bleachers.   
All of the seats in the stadium give you a great view of the game.

Sizzle the Bull is the team mascot.  He can be seen during the games cheering with fans and helping with between inning contests.  Get your picture with him or a high-five.  He's ready!  

Concessions are located throughout the ballpark and in kiosks.  Enjoy a ballpark meal or a tasty snack.  We loved the raspberry lemonade and kettle corn!

The scoreboard comes alive during the game to celebrate homeruns.  
We were lucky enough to see three while we were there.  

So, if you are looking for a fun family outing or a date night, and live in the KC area, head out to see the T-Bones.  The tickets are reasonable, the parking is free, and the stadium is easy to get in and out of.  You will be thrilled with the excitement of baseball and love being close to home when it's all over.  And if you are there on a Friday night, you get to see a great fireworks show!

GoBreezie Towels Review

Did you know there is a towel out there that is versatile enough for the beach, pool, yoga, etc...?  And....you can easily take it with you?  
The GoBreezie towel is a high quality microfiber that is durable to last for years.  

Each towel comes with a matching pattern drawstring bag for travel and carry.  They fold or roll up for easy transport.  The color options are made to provide something for everyone.  From bright to neutral, you can make your own statement. 

I carried my towels to the pool last week.  While getting organized, I hung the bags on the fence.  It was a convenient and fun way to display them.

After laying them out on the chairs, I was amazed at the softness of the fiber.  
They are a thin material, but very comfortable to relax on. 

They absorbed water quickly after drying off from swimming.  
When I got home, I hung the towels up and was amazed at how fast they dried.  
No soaking wet water-filled towels to deal with. 

I can't wait to take these towels with me on our family trip to Mexico this summer.  They will pack easily and be the perfect travel accessory.

So, if you are looking for a great towel for water activities or travel....this is it!!
