On the 14th of May, after a loooong day of shows for a Children’s Day event we put all our stuff in the car and headed toward Kansas City, Missouri. The trip was sooo long, but worth it.
In Kansas we were able to see my long lost uncle (ha ha, yea sure!) and Jessica, Milagros, Jessie, Sherif, Danny and who else…Oh Yes! And Emman. They are such COOL people! I have never met any adults that were more fun than those crazy guys. We had a great time and were able to organize, along with some friends, a surprise party for my grandparents on their 40th anniversary. They were absolutely thrilled and even shed a few tears. Oh, good for us!
We had some pretty good Mexican food, (considering that American-Mexican food really, really….well, I won’t say it, but…. you get the picture….) Anyway, there were these two musicians that played my grandparents’ song and a few of their favorites. They really loved that!
After some good time, we went outside and started feeding the horses. They were beautiful and super eaters! Then, I think it was Danny, got the brilliant idea to give the horse some cake frosting, and well, here is a little video. It was really funny. Enjoy.
Danny by the way, is an absolute child! Even this friend of ours didn’t believe him when he told her he was eighteen, she was like, “Naa, I don’t believe you. You are way to fun to be eighteen.” But he showed her his drivers license, I think, and that finally made her believe it.
Anyway, with the horse he was acting so funny! He was like feeding it and cooing to it at the same time. “You like it! Oh Yes you do! Nice horsie, nice horsie!” Okaaaay…..not something you would expect but at least everyone had a good time and laughed till out tummies hurt.
Jessica and Milagros were sooooo friendly and they are just such lovable people! Absolute darlings!
The O’Connor brothers were “Muy buena onda” too and my uncle was just, well, my uncle. The crazy, funny, teasing dad that he is.
And Emman, was just, well, all I would ever want for an uncle, sweet, loving, kind, funny, a good person to talk too and all those great things that he is composed of! You rock Emman!
So anyway, that was our trip to Kansas. A really fun experience! I just wish we could have stayed there longer!
Here are some pictures of the trip.
