One Last Getaway

Lauren enjoyed feeding the baby goat as long as she was on the
outside of the fence.
Lauren takes a little time to stop and smell the flowers.
But not much time - she's 20 months old and very busy!

At the Farmstead the kids use cane poles and a bucket of earthworms for bait.

The boys were hoping to get rich quick after panning
for iron pirite (a.k.a. "fool's gold")

The weekend before school started, we decided on a whim to go to Kansas City. We had been wanting to take the kids to a place in Overland Park called Deanna Rose Farmstead. On Saturday morning we got up and watched the weather at our hotel. The forecast was for rain. We killed a little time searching for Pokemon backpacks. The rain stopped early and we had a wonderful day. The temperature was in the 70s and it was cloudy. The rain scared most of the people away so it wasn't busy at all. The kids had a blast fishing, feeding the baby goats, mining, riding ponies, and taking a wagon ride. I would highly recommend taking kiddos.
