That's what happens at Fritz's in Kansas City. We went there with Kora and Kendall and their Mommy Danelle.
And yes, the food comes to your table via a train from above . . .
. . . and then drops down to your table. It's very, very exciting.
We had a great time and it was great catching up with Kora and Kendall.
We met our friends Ari and Gwen at the train station at took a train all the way to field. Charley flirted with Ari, Gwen wanted to join in, and Jackson just looked out the window.
There's always so much to see on the train. It was a great ride, we love the train.
When we arrived at Target Field, we searched for the perfect seats.
Once we found them, we waited patiently for the game to start . . .
. . . or were we waiting for our food?
We were to sure to share our good fortune with our friends.
When we first got to the stadium, we saw the U of M marching band go on a parade through the lower level. It was awesome and we were all struck by the giant tubas. Later, while we were walking through the stadium, we found a tuba player and Daddy asked if he'd play for us. Not only did he play, he let us play too. He was great.
By the time we left, we were exhausted. Not only did we have a great time at Target Field, but Mommy and Daddy let us skip our nap so we could be there.
The chocolate brownie sugar infusion we had on the train ride home didn't even help.
Seems like every carmaker has a recall right now on at least one vehicle. Our bus, apparently. is no exception. However, rather than bring it to the dealer (we simply don't trust them), Jax stuck his head under the bus to take a look for himself. We think he (and Elmo) got it fixed. Truth be told, we've been a little forgetful with our scheduled maintenance.
It was a beautiful day today we he headed out in search of spring.
Along the way, we saw Benji. He's a really nice dog who lives down the street from us. We said hello but had yet to find spring so we didn't stay long.
We hopped on our bikes and started the search again.
A little while later, we stopped to check out the griffin that also lives in our neighborhood. We asked him if spring is on the way, but he's an mythical creature of little words.
So we continued our search. Spring has to be around here somewhere.
"Mommy! You have to hold hands in the street! No running down the street!"
-- Charley said upon seeing Mommy out the window finishing her run one morning.
"You're right Charley, if you're in the street, you're supposed to hold hands. I'm sorry."
-- Mommy replied.
"Mommy, You need to wait for Mr. Dick (the neighbor) to come outside, and you can hold hands with Mr. Dick and run in the street."
-- Charley explained.
Back story: When the boys hide, we always look for them, and say, "He must be running down the street! Be careful! You have to hold hands when you run in the street!"
We received a very nice surprise from Mommy today. No, it didn't come in the mail, it WAS the mail.
And an Elmo. Just wait until you see what he can do.
We love them so much that went and found our cameras to take a picture of them.
We saw the St. Patrick's Day Parade today that went right through downtown. Everyone seemed to have horns so Mommy and Daddy bought us a couple of our own. They're awesome.
We got them before the parade began and we blew them non-stop.
We got so good at it, we even tried to join the bagpipe band.
But what's awesomer than horns you ask? Candy.
We had lots to opportunity to chase down all that candy.
So much so that we gave some to our new friends sitting next to us.
We even got some beads. It was more fun than you can even imagine.
Daddy's friend and coworker Mr. Ben even stopped by and took a few photos of us. We didn't make the paper this time though. Probably because Daddy looks so creepy in this photo.
Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone.
This is a pretty sweet tricycle, but ours fit us much better. Besides there's no seat for Charley to sit in while he works the pedals. That's a major oversight by whoever designed this bike.
Perhaps we'll pick up some new shades instead.
We made our first visit to the bike shop to pick up Daddy's bike after he got some new tires. We spent lots of time checking out all the cool bikes. There were big bikes, little bikes, bikes for two people and even some bikes that don't go anywhere. How weird is that?
It's a good thing we've been working on our non-regional diction because we visited Mommy at work for the first time over the weekend. What an awesome place she works.
She greeted us at the front door upon our arrival . . .
. . . and the first thing we did was say hello to Tom. You may not know this, but he's kind of a big deal.
After we exchanged pleasantries, we got to work.
Tom helped a little, but we wanted to develop our own send-off.
Here it is: Stay AWESOME Twin Cities
It's really hard sometimes to fight the urge to sleep. There's nothing wrong with searching for the best spot to take a break. It's just not always easy to find. Sometimes it's the bear . . .
. . . other times it's the lion.
Sometimes it's right in the middle of the floor . . .
. . . but it's almost always right next to each other.
We were out for a walk around the block the other day when we got to our friends Joshua, Jakin, Jude, and Gracie's house down the street. LOTS of water was puddled around their driveway so we thought we'd help them clean it up.
But who are we kidding? All we really wanted to do was walk through it. So we did.
The snow is melting fast. We spent likely our last day in the snow this past weekend. We made new tunnels and some deep holes that we jumped in.
And since it is going so fast, we thought we'd take a few last bites before it's gone.
