Kansas City

April 13 we headed to Kansas City to attend the new Kansas City Temple open house. Nate's mom made the trip with us and the girls were (mostly) well-behaved! Before we made it to the Temple we stopped at the Liberty Jail Visitor's Center:

We made it to the Temple!!! It is beautiful! It was such a neat experience for the girls to go inside the temple.  I'm sure Allison and Camille will remember none of it in the years to come, but I think Hannah might  remember bit and pieces of her first time in the Temple.

Afterwards we headed to Crown Center in downtown.  It is a huge shopping mall/entertainment center.  They have an aquarium, legoland, etc, but also standard mall stuff like stores and food.  We had heard about this "train restaurant" called Fritz's and had to try it out. You order your food on a phone at the table, and then there is a train on a track up in the air that delivers the food to your table.  The girls thought it was great...and mom and dad enjoyed their butterscotch milkshake! :)

They also had a fun little play center inside the mall...

...and a splash park outside!

Our last stop on the way home was at Adam-ondi-ahman.  We got there just before sunset and it was beautiful as well!
