Hibachi Bar

Jons family came to town to celebrate Jons birthday. We went to dinner at a hibachi bar. I thought for sure Ava would love it. I was wrong!

From the first fire scene Ava was freaked out! 

She climbed right up grandma and didn't really want to get back in her seat after that.  She wasn't too impressed with the cooking show.

More treats for Jon!

Not all was lost.  Ava soon discovered there was a DJ and a dance floor in the bar area!  She met a little fiend and they danced it up.

Taking a break!

This little girl with Ava was 1 year older and she was teaching Ava some steps.  Like jumping on one foot, lol.

Hugs and kisses for dad!  Ava also sang him happy birthday, it was sooo sweet!

Ava and dad both love their chocolate.

Surprise!  Crown Royal Extra Rare.

Fun Run

We took Ava and Gavin to Fun Run Bounce House and Arcade. They had a blast. Ava loved the slides and was pretty into the arcade games as well. She'd climb in the bounce house and then peek out the door and yell, "COME MOMMA!!" So I'd go. Even though I think I'm too old, lol. It felt like it took time for my brain to catch up with my eyes, and the bouncing kind of made me motion sick!! I preferred the slides.

After Mr. Stinky Feet and Wonderscope we took the kids to Fritz's. It's a cute KC burger joint.

You get seated and when you are ready you call in the order!

The awesome thing about Fritzes is there are trains running on a track along the ceiling.  These trains deliver your food!


Is that our food??

Here comes our food!

Here's the food being lowered to our table.  The kids were pretty excited.  Jenny and I are screaming, "LOOK LOOK!!"  while taking pictures.  I'm sure the other customers thought we were crazy, lol!

Crosby was way more excited about his food delivery than Mr. Stinky Feet!

Ava loved her burgers and fries.

Crosby and Avalyn also spent some time at Wonderscope. It's a kids museum/learning center.

Water play is always a hit


Ava really enjoyed this room.  There were several mazes and tracks that you would drop golf balls in.

We ended in the Market/Farm room.  She found this big stuffed dog and claimed it her own, lol.

Mr. Stinky Feet

We took Ava and her friend Crosby to a kids concert. It was performed by a local guy, Mr. Stinky Feet.
This picture CRACKS me up.  Crosby's expression is so funny.  It's obvious Ava was all about it and Crosby was, "Meh this guys nothing special!"

Here is a video.  We started with some dancing in the back.  Then Ava decided she needed more room to dance so she started moving chairs around.  After that she darts to the front row and yes eventually center stage!  We now know this girl has no stage fright!  She can also do a really awesome pirouette for a 2 1/2 year old!
