Ketchup Time

Hello, Constant Reader!

Sorry for the unexplained blog-cation...I meant to write during my week off from work (precious, precious time between Darling's 5th birthday and the first day of Kindergarten), but low and behold, the week zipped by and there I sat with a Google Reader at the 1,000+ New Items point. (I *MIGHT* have skimmed through some, but I promise that I totally read whatever you wrote!)

So, let me ketch you up....

Things Moxie learned on her 9 day stay-cation:

Do not attempt to spray glitter on fairy wings on a windy day unless you WANT to look like Tinkerbell's whore.

I CAN get sick of leftover hot dogs

Screw the holidays, stay-cations where you do what you want to do, when you want is where it is AT!!! The best, most relaxing va-ca ever!

The Narnia exhibit at Union Station was AWESOME!!! Slightly heavy on the Disney-ness of the movie making stuff, but they had some great CS Lewis paraphenalia...

The Lego Exhibit at Crown Center is awesome!!



Kalideoscope is still incredibly awesome and Fritz's train restaraunt is still overpriced crappy food...

The Butterfly Exhibit at Powell Gardens was VERY cool...



So was their splash fountain!



One of the cutest things about Darling is that she always has to "stop and smell the flowers". Whether it's the grocery store or a random sidewalk, she must take a second and enjoy them. At Powell Gardens, that got a bit out of hand...


All in all, it was a great vacation. Maybe we slept too late and played too much Pretty, Pretty Princess, but it was fun...



It all led up to the big day...First Day of Kindergarten...I only turned into Sobby McWeepypants for a minute or two...


Long and short of it all, Moxie's back and super plus dedicated to bringing you more tales from our stay-cation adventures.

So, I'm back and promise to get back to giving you wonderfully insightful, thought-provoking blog comments (umm...yeah, 'cause I've always done that, right?)

pppssst: If you are in KC this weekend, The Toy and Miniature Museum is offering free admission this Sat. Aug 29th. I've ALWAYS wanted to go so I'm a little excited. Storytime, balloon animals, face painting, what could be more fun for little kids? (I know, a lot, but still).

I still stop to smell the flowers too!

Oh, your little "Darling" is so precious!

Thanks for Ketchin' me up!

Hugs!!

Beautiful Mess said...

Awww *sniff sniff* kindergarten?! When Zilla went last year, I was a MESS! We picked him up and I asked if he missed me and he said "No, not really. Well only if I really thought about you"...ouch! She'll have SO much fun this year!

Glad you enjoyed your vacation! Great photos! I love the one of you two (I assume) pointing at the butterfly.
*HUGS*

Fun staycation! I never met a butterfly I didn't like. Or a hummingbird for that matter. Thanks so much for stopping by to visit Alice today!
