Exploring Our New Land . . . .

Coming from Madrid, we were used to having quite the variety of places to go, and things to do. We have already discovered that Kansas City is also full of the same! Last week, after we felt like the boxes were done throwing up on the apartment, we headed Westish and ended up at Zona Rosa. I love the outdoor/downtown mall look this shopping area has going on: Enter Gap on N.W 86th Terrace then head down N. Stoddard Ave. to the Town Square. On Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings in the summer you can enjoy free live music there! All you need is a lawn chair and a kid to watch while he/she plays in the fountain. You get an added bonus if your child is wearing a soaked diaper that drops to mid-thigh.


Checking out the Frog Fountain.

While we didn't bring a lawnchair or half naked kid, we did enjoy walking around this very cute "downtown" while doing some window shopping. I think I found my new favorite store.

Double fisting it . . .



Oh look . . . there's more.



Renae runs around one of the 200 fountains in KC.


While Sammy enjoyed cereal, we shared some Coldstream Ice Cream.


Ahh the joys of summer . . . .
We'll keep you posted as we find new and fun things to do here in our new city!

I enter the Vintage store webpage and it´s really beautiful, no wonder why is your new favourite store!

It feels like we haven't seen you guys in ages...Sammy has grown so much! I hope you got my email about the Y, I haven't been able to get on facebook for awhile. I love KC, it's one of my favorite cities to visit. Your posts are making me want to plan a trip to Oceans of Fun and California Pizza Kitchen!

Glad to see you found your keyboard; I was afraid the blog had dried up! Vicki's in Madrid this week (as a last minute replacement), and I'm missing the good times we had helping the master ESL teacher last year.
Our daughter discovered the "French" Masson blog and told us how she enjoyed reading it -- we quickly set her straight about the real Masson blog. What a coincidence! Hope we can see you guys and your growing kids sometime!
