Well, this past weekend we headed to Kansas City for the wedding of one of R's best friends. (In fact, R was the best man in the wedding). It was actually a DOUBLE wedding, which I have never been to before. Two sisters getting married. It was beautiful. The two couples drove away in corvettes. (One red, one blue). I was totally jealous. I've always wanted a red corvette!!
Sunday morning we headed downtown to the Kansas City Country Club Plaza. What a beautiful area. We had lunch with R & M at Brio Tuscan Grill and then wandered around by the river and in and out of a few shops.
We just happened to be there for the Duck Derby 2008! We watched as over 15,000 rubber ducks were dropped in the river and 'raced' downstream to the big finish line. Very fun. It was all to benefit the Children's Therapeutic Learning Center. I bet they did well! What a cute idea! That was about all we saw of Kansas City! We definitely have that on our list of cities to visit again in the near future.
I also have my Monkey sock to show! My goal is to finish this up later today. With another long car trip coming up this weekend, I should be able to finish the second sock and have a whole pair!! I think that will be some kind of sock knitting record for me! This is done with the Loopy Legends Colorway that Sheri had designed and named for me. 'Janice's Sunshine in Winter'. I LOVE it. They will be fun to wear once that dreaded cold weather comes this fall!
Sumo was spoiled this past weekend and got to spend most of his time at our neighbors house lounging around; going for walks and getting brushed. I'm sure he even got to play some with Miss Molly - Alice's adorable Wheaton Terrier. They've actually become quite good friends, Sumo and Miss Molly, now that she has settled down a bit. What he really wants is to go to Grandma and Grandpas house this weekend.... Too bad it is such a long drive. I think he'll be better off staying at home.
Well, I'll post again soon when I get some pictures from the weekend. Off to start crossing some things off my 'To-Do' list for today.
Until Next Time.....
