weekend wanderlust *

This weekend, we spent a couple of days with D's aunt and uncle in Kansas City. The town is full of history, culture, and character- I loved it. I'm only sorry I didn't take more pictures. Here's D checking out a beautiful piece by Judith Shea at the enormous and fabulous Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. If you ever find yourself in that part of the county, the Nelson-Atkins is a must see. Just make sure to leave yourself plenty of time to explore.

waterlogged 4th of July *

Well, my 4th turned out to be a bit soggier than I might have hoped. A day full of showers cancelled city fireworks displays and parades, but D and I invited some friends to our house, where we enjoyed a Rocky IV/Sandlot double feature, a muddy soccer game, some damp sparklers, and a day full of cooking and eating. Bad weather could never ruin a holiday spent with good folks and good food. I hope your 4th of July was full of both.!

Check out some pictures of our novice fireworks display over at Cookie and Kate.
