I’ve had a great 2014 summer so far! The weeks are flying by! Most people probably think teachers just sit around and do nothing all summer, but I feel like I’ve had more on my calendar in the past few weeks than I did during the school year. Here’s what I’ve been up to:
My grandma got an adorable dog named Lars. He’s a chihuahua dachshund mix and approximately six years old. This dog LOVES to cuddle. He likes to be carried everywhere. He’s a handful, but my grandma is up for giving him his forever home. She got him through the KC Pet Project.
We also went to the first starlight show of the season, The Wizard of Oz. This was an updated version with some new songs. It was really fun! This was their “kids” show, so they had some kid activities, like making tornados in a bottle, meeting Brian Busby and talking about weather, and meeting some adoptable dogs! I, of course, wanted to spend time with the dogs. We also went on the backstage tour. We have been on the back stage tour so many times we could probably give it! My favorite actor was Toto, which we got to see on the backstage tour!
We also celebrated my mom’s birthday by going to Chuy’s on the Plaza. If you want a cheap meal, go to Chuy’s Monday-Friday from 4-7, order a drink and feast on their free happy hour nacho bar! Yum
A few weeks ago, we ran the 5k Hospital Hill Run. They changed it this year and did the 5k on Friday night and did the 10k and half marathon Saturday morning. We lucked out; the weather was perfect Friday night, but rained Saturday morning. As you can see, we themed our outfits!
Today, we celebrated Father’s Day by going to lunch at Stone Canyon Pizza, taking a walk in English Landing Park, and looking at the artwork/getting coffee at the Parkville Coffee House. Fun fact: my dad use to be the manager of a restaurant that was in the same building as the Parkville Coffee House, and for my parent’s first date, he brought her to the restaurant , made her whatever she wanted, and ate upstairs! Happy Father’s Day to the best out there!
Now to watch the season finale of Game of Thrones and The World Cup. Uno has been rooting for his Italian brothers 🙂 I personally liked the Costa Rica team.
