My Halloween costume this year is a Majorette outfit that was my Moms when she was a little girl in grade school! She was part of a Baton Group that marched/performed in area parades.  My Grandma saved her retro gold outfit…(polyester, rick-rack and all!) We didn’t  have the original hat, but we added the cowboy hat and extra “bling” crown to give it sparkle! She made the boot tops out of foam  that I wore with white tennis shoes, and the tassels were made from purple yarn.  This picture was taken last night just before “Trunk-or-Treat” at our school.  We had a great time!…Oh, and my sister was Minnie Mouse….if you didn’t already guess….de-uh!! (she does make a cute Minnie!)

Happy Halloween Everyone!

This picture was taken last year on St. Patrick’s Day at The Irish Museum and Cultural Center in Union Station in Kansas City. They had a Children’s Event with minimal cost activities…balloon sculptures, face painting, Celtic name stamping, stain glass coloring and more. It was perfect for little ones and everyone definitely was in the Irish Spirit!!

Fun Activity!! There is a walking tunnel/bridge that connects Crown Center and Union Station and its perfect for kids during the winter. You get a great view of the city, and the kids can get in some good walking exercise!

Here’s what we like to do: We park over at Crown Center, do some window shopping and check out all it has to offer. (sometimes there are puppet shows or Free exhibits, check out their website for Calendar Events) Next, we check out the Waterfall in the  Hyatt Regency Hotel. The kids love to toss coins in the fountain, so have some pennies on hand!  Then we head over to Union Station, using the walking bridge.  You will get great views of the World War I Memorial, Union Station and the Kansas City skyline!  The best thing……..you don’t have to be out in the cold, and the kids will have had an exciting outing!
