Trains, Trains and More Trains

Sunday afternoon we all loaded into 3 cars and headed to downtown Kansas City. The goal? See a bunch of trains and then have dinner delivered by one.

The kids (big and little alike!) had a ball looking at the massive train set displayed in Union Station.


 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The kiddos also all thoroughly enjoyed walking through The Link (an enclosed, above the street sidewalk system that connects several buildings in Kansas City).


 
We then took the kiddos to Crown Center for some fine dining. Ah, that line just makes me giggle... what we ate was anything but "fine". To be fair though, you don't go to Fritz's for the food - you go because a train delivers your food!


See that train at the top of the picture? It rides around a track in the restaurant delivering food! In the above picture the train is just dropping our box of food off. The food was then lowered to the table on a tray. Nifty, huh? The kids love it. They also love the conductor hats!


 
 
 
After dinner we bundled up and headed outside to take in the Mayor's Christmas Tree and the fountains!


 
 
 
 
 
 

And that, my friends, is how we ended our Chaotic Christmas! It was a ball and I wish it could have lasted longer! To close out my few days of excessive picture posts, I'd like to leave you with just one more shot. My family, all together again for the first time in several years!
