4th of July Weekend

We started out our 4th of July weekend with a road trip to Wichita. Toby needed to check a site there so we decided to load up the car and go with him. Our plan was for Toby to work on Friday and then for us to go to the Zoo on Saturday. This was the longest car ride with both kids and they did great! It was also Ryder's first time staying in a hotel and he did wonderful (it was his first night to sleep for 4 hours in a row).

When we woke up on Saturday it was a little cloudy but we headed to the zoo anyway. After we parked, unloaded everything and started to walk towards the entrance it started to rain. So we ran back to the car and unloaded everything. This was a very cruel joke to play on a 4 year old. Paisley was not very happy that we were this close and couldn't go in. So, to calm her down and burn off some energy we ended up going to the Exploration Place (it is kind of like Science City).

After we finished visiting the Exploration Place we stopped for lunch before we headed to KC for Ben & Jen's Annual 4th of July Bash. It is funny how this party has evolved over the years (the kids are taking over).
