We got in late the first night so we woke up early the next morning and worked a few hours then headed out to explore the city. We got going at about 2 in the afternoon.
|This is the national WW1 memorial (unfortunately it was closed the day we were there)|
|This is the view of the city from the WWI memorial. The building to the left in the foreground is Union Station.|

|You could imagine the bustling place Union Station once was|
|this is a view of the ceiling|
|There was a player piano|
|In the back they had a really nice model train collection|
|they had many different scales of trains and they were all elaborately displayed|
|they really knew how to build stuff back in the day|
|We biked all over the place. Here you see Kansas City divided: Missouri on the right, Kansas on the left.|
|Part of the museum on the lower level, we found this inside City Market.|
|There are tons of fountains in Kansas City. We found a map of them and there were dozens just in downtown alone.|
|This was an interesting tear drop camper that had a cool slideout in the front|
|This is a great camper idea|
|The KC football game was being broadcast on a screen and there was a nice outdoor area where people gathered|
|We found a sushi restaurant (the Drunken Fish) that had great ratings and they were half price through Yelp. :) |
This is the chef's combo.
|we got a miso soup and a seaweed salad|
|some vegetarian sushi|
|This is the inside of the sushi restaurant|
|Of course, on the way out we had to stop by Kauffman Stadium (where the KC Royals play) to pick up something for Cara's|
brother, Kirk, who has to be one of the biggest Royals fans.
|I'm sure it was killing Kirk that we were in Kansas City, and he wasn't, especially since there was a playoff game later that day.|
