Since they are first time parents and we like to rock a hot mess of crazy train when we go anywhere, we opted to stay at a hotel. It was the new Hampton Inn in Olathe...which I totally recommend. It had all the requirements I need for a hotel... kick ass continental breakfast, indoor pool, clean room (no roaches in my hair....I'll save that for a later post), plus it was only $89 a night.
We went with the plan to go to the zoo on Saturday. We drove all the way to the zoo, only to find out that it was free entry for 2 counties. There were 1 billion people there, that's not an exaggeration. Then we decided to go to Crown Center. It was a mall that had a play area, Crayola Store, LegoLand, an Aquarium, some severely over-priced stores, and a cool restaurant called Fritz'.
LegoLand and the Aquarium open later this month....nope we didn't get to see them, maybe next time.
However, the play area was a blast!!
