A Fun Weekend in Kansas City!

April is off to a slow start around noTTafarm but I have a good excuse. I ran away to Kansas City last weekend with a wild group of women! Eight members of the Ward family were able to make the long-anticipated trip. Planning began last November with my mom and dad's silent auction purchase of the weekend trip. Finally, last Friday, two big SUVs started out from Kearney, picked up some of us in Lincoln, and headed down the interstate. 

My sister Karolyn made the first purchase of the trip. 
She found a neat belt and cute t-shirt at White House Black Market. Good job, Pooh!
Sister-in-law LuAnn scored these stylish Sperry's. Adorable! 
It was so fun having three nieces along for the trip! 
Chelsie and Karli were all smiles when we stopped shopping for lunch on Saturday.

Sadly, family obligations kept LuAnn's daughters-in-law (Monica and Brooke) from joining us this time.

Saturday night, we ate dinner at Garozzo's Italian Restaurant in downtown Kansas City.

 I couldn't help but take a picture of my Limoncello Cake! 
Oh so delicious!
These two ladies, Marlene and Cindy, were responsible for chauffeuring us all weekend. In their normal lives, they are moms of kids that attend Kearney Catholic schools. They, and a group of friends, donated the trip which we all enjoyed! They put up with all of our shenanigans, drove like champs, and kept everything moving smoothly.

Mom surprised us with monogrammed tote bags which we happily filled with bargains throughout our fun weekend!
Thanks, Mom & Dad!
