Last Friday night, my office sponsored a night at the Kansas City Royals baseball game for lawyers and staff. Kauffman Stadium is as much children's amusement park (merry-go-round, goofy golf) as it is baseball park.
HRC and I decide to spend the night and make a Saturday "day trip" out of it. We stay at this funky place in Independence, Missouri, called the Serendipity Bed and Breakfast. It was odd but much more interesting than the nearby Hilton. We stayed in the End of The Trails Suite in this old Carriage House:
The next day we toured historic Independence and then spent a couple of very interesting and educational hours at the LDS Visitor's Center:
and then marveled at the Community of Christ Temple across the street
then on to the Harry S. Truman Library and Museum.
It was also very interesting and yes ... historic.
On to the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum in Kansas City which even HRC enjoyed.
Before heading home, we joined our good friends Jane and Mike at their favorite Thai restaurant in Kansas City.
It was a fun 28 hour get-a-way.
