Day in Kansas City

I’ve been trying to think how to write about Sue and my day in Kansas City yesterday.  We had so much fun.  It wasn’t until late in the day that we found out about the terrible tragedy in Connecticut.  It hardly seems right to post these cheery pictures when there is so much sadness.   I’ve been thinking of the families all day. 

I do want to chronicle our trip, though.  We planned it two weeks ago and I looked forward to it that long. 

First, we went to Trader Joe’s—the one on Ward Parkway.  There are two in Kansas City, but this one sells the 3 buck Chuck wine.  I bought the Cab Sav and have to say we think it’s pretty darn good.  Certainly not too sweet.  This is an interesting place to look around for sure.  I picked up several of their name brand items and am anxious to see how we like them.  The price is certainly right.

The lights were already on when we arrived at the Plaza.  Maybe they leave them on all the time or maybe it was because it was an overcast day.  But, we basically just walked around enjoying the Christmas cheer.   The picture below was taken in Hall’s near their extensive Christmas ornament display.
