Our Kansas City Trip, etc.

It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood!  It's sunny and mild.  Love this!  There are only a few patches of snow here and there, and the pond is trying to go from solid to liquid -- ever so slowly.  The geese are stopping by to check on it's progress.  I see little shoots beginning to come up in the flower bed.  Maybe spring is on it's way to MN.

Last week was Jadyn's spring break and we enjoyed a trip to Kansas City.  We visited our daughter, Kaitlyn and son-in-law, Chris.  It was so good to see them.  We stayed for 3 nights, and the time went so quickly.  We enjoyed visiting, eating, shopping, a museum visit, and more.  We met our newest grandkitten, Tony.
Jadyn had tons of fun playing with him.  He is sweet, and it almost made me want a kitten. Almost.

By the way, please excuse the quality of some of the photos.  Some were taken with my phone.  It was just one of those "snap what you can" trips.  :)
We visited at Chris' mom's home one afternoon.  Jadyn enjoyed visiting the horses and other animals.

So now we are home and back to our usual schedule.  Jadyn's back in school and this is good.  Little Miss Active needs her Kindergarten time.  

My brother came for a visit yesterday and stayed the night.  It was nice to have the opportunity to visit with him.  He lives in Texas, in our home town.  It's always a bonus when family comes to visit us.  

Have a wonderful week, friends!
