Kansas City {Lego Land, T-Rex Cafe, & Krispy Kreme}

A few weekends ago we took our last little trip as a family of 3. We wanted to get out of town one last time before I got too close to my due date and couldn't travel.

We made the 2 hour drive to Kansas City to Lego Land where we built towers, made and raced cars, and rode a few rides. Ben had a blast and J may have loved it just as much as Ben.

The earthquake tower. You built a tower and then pressed a button and the table would shake. The goal was to build a tower that wouldn't fall down.

Building race cars.

Sending them down the track.

More building and racing.

After the boys were all raced out, we rode on a little ride where you shoot different lego targets and then headed to the mini lego area. Ben and I were a little disappointed in the mini lego area. I thought there would be little legos to build with, but instead there were replica's of famous areas made from all different kings of mini legos. The people who create all of these are pretty talented.

 Ben and daddy rode one last ride before we headed across the street to walk around Crowne Plaza.

After Crowne Plaza, we drove about 20 miles into Kansas to eat dinner at the T-Rex Cafe. They have a T-Rex cafe at Downtown Disney that we didn't get to eat at so I was excited to try this one. The atmosphere was really neat and Ben liked seeing all the dinosaurs. The food was so-so. 

A few weeks before going to KC, J and I were talking about donuts and Krispy Kreme in particular. J had never been to one so imagine how excited I was when we came across one on our way home. J was skeptical about just how great these donuts were, but once he tried one he agreed that they are THE best donuts ever.

Ben was quite fond of them too:)

It was a great little trip and so nice to spend time together just the 3 of us!
