It's T-1 day in Wichita...here is a tally of events of the last 2 weeks:
Trips to the Y: 7 and counting
They have a cool water slide that's just exciting enough but safe for all. And, they have a family workout room with cardio machines for moms and dads, virtual exercise bikes, Dance Dance Revolution kiosks, 2 Wii kiosks, and a karate machine - a fave for all of us. Maybe I'll get a pic tomorrow....
Multiple visits to 3 different parks
Two excursions to the River Festival (music, rides, fair food...)
an afternoon at Exploration Place - a children's museum linked in The Works' association - score!!! That membership keeps paying off.
Bean with her hands on the Van de Graaff generator. It's a family tradition...there is a pic of me doing this in my HS Senior yearbook.
(Sweet Daddy insists its called a Tesla coil - ptooey)
Bug making a bubble around himself
And one AA baseball game -
the Wichita Wingnuts (I know, unfortunate) v. the Lincoln Saltdogs
Wichita tromped them and we saw the mascot "Spinner the Squirrel." Bean kept asking where the "Skirl" went. (Double score - our River Festival admission buttons got us into the festival and the game days later. And would have gotten us into the museum if we hadn't used our Works' membership.)
I really like Wichita, may have mentioned that...Tornado Alley...Sweet Man is becoming a little busier with a tally of 3 storms now. He will be joining us for Memorial Day weekend (camping, hopefully...if we get that $#!!& pool under control) and then he'll be back here.
The kids and I will be staying home through July 11th for the wedding of two of the sweetest people we know. Yay!
