For Christmas, since we knew we were going to be together, we purchased some family photos for Mom and Dad. They ended up great, but I do not have the finally proofs. I was able to grab a few cute pics of the kids while they were dressed up. Ben did not corporate but the others were all smiles
Elise (4), Lauren (6), Katherine (7), and Cooper (9)
The next day we went to the World War I History Museum, and the Kansas City Aquarium. The museum was really interesting, and I was glad we got a chance to check it out, especially being a history buff.

After the museum, we headed across the street to the aquarium. Since we are so blessed , we have been to a lot of aquariums. I think this one was a really great one. We saw an octopus, sea horses and
very large sting rays.

We spent Monday bowling and playing laser tag, which I am officially not really great at. It was so great to see all the family, and wish we could see each other more often. I will post the family pics once completed.
