3rd annual trip to KC

We have made it a tradition every 4th of July to go to Kansas City and see Bretts brother, Travis and his family; Shanna, Ella & Chloe. We love it! There is nothing like time with family, especially with 3 cute little girls playing together, I just love watching Maya, Ella & Chloe.

We went to an interactive science museum our first day, it was so fun, interesting and creative! It was perfect for all of the girls and even for us adults.

For the weekend with drove up to Jeff City, all 7 of us packed in to1 van, to visit Grandma Pratt, and lots of aunts, uncles and cousins. We has lots of good food and lots of fun! All of the kids played so well together and Maya loved her Grandma Pratt, she even left her a poo poo present on the floor one morning (oh dear......)

On our way back to KC we decided to stop by Brett's Uncle Dave & Aunt Louise's home in Eugene, MO. It was awesome! They live on almost 100 acres, of beautiful green lushiness! They have their own vineyard, large garden, blackberries bushes, fruit trees and other agriculture, enough to live off of. They have also designed and built their own home using wood from their own property. There house is so innovative and has such a spectacular design. I have to say visiting their home was my favorite part of the trip! I loved watching Maya run through the vineyard, pick grapes and play with her cousins. I felt like we were in a movie. It was so cute to watch Aunt Louise with the kids, I think she gave Maya a band-aide about 5 different time for a tiny cut on her finger.

For the 4th of July we went to a neighborhood party in KC. There were so many children Mayas age, they had a big blow-up water slide, and tons of food, but right about time fireworks were about to start it started to rain...... sad, so I didn't get to many photos of the celebration

On our way home we decided to stop in Omaha since Maya had never been there. Of course our trip would not be complete without seeing our good friends the Cz's and Aunt Anna & Uncle Jon
