    You're welcome! It's great to hear from you :) Hope you've enjoyed the yo-yo weather we have here lol

    You know I haven't been to the zoo in ages though I've thought about going back soon.

    I also haven't been to Worlds of Fun or Oceans of Fun in several years (last time was a work event for my husband's work) but there is that. Now yes it is NOT WDW but if you're looking for roller coasters or a water park there is that (several years ago they merged both parks into one so admission price is for the usage of both). I have yet to go to Schlitterbahn KC (up by the Legends) I figured I would wait until they built more things inside the park.

    The Country Club Plaza (or what we simply call the Plaza) in Kansas City Missouri (KCMO) is good during the day when the weather is nice just to walk around and stuff though I just window shop lol.

    The Legends, in Kansas City Kansas (KCK), is nice too and is an Outlet shopping district and they are continually adding in more places. I know Kate Spade is coming soon and I believe Michael Kors if you like those places. There is also Park Place in Leawood which is across the street from Town Center Plaza both of which are shopping areas but are nice to walk around in good weather.

    If you like museums there are multiple ones in the metro area.

    If you like nature there is the Overland Park Arboretum and Botanical Gardens though I admit we have yet to make it there. We planned on going for the Luminary Walk during winter but that fell through.

    Although I'm an Iowan, I go to KC quite a bit. Last year we took my stepson to the zoo for a mini spring break trip. It was great! It's not Animal Kingdom, but it is very nice. I loved the penguins. I was about 10 weeks pregnant at the time, and I got tired and just sat and watched the penguins.

    This year we are probably heading to Great Wolf Lodge in KC for my stepson's birthday in June. Thought of doing Schlitterbahn, but with the new baby, decided it might be too much.

    Welcome! I agree with everyone on what they have suggested for KC so far! (For the zoo- have you been before? Visit at least once before you get season tickets. It's an okay zoo but it's not the best).

    If you're looking for fun places to walk around outside, Powell Gardens is about a 30 minute drive from Lee's Summit and it's beautiful. Just a big ole garden with different sections. Very pretty and they have a lot of special events. I think it's a similar idea to the Zilker gardens :)

    First Fridays are fun. They happen in an area of downtown called the Crossroads on the first Friday of every month. It's a big celebration of art. Lots of galleries open up, there's entertainment, lots of fun.

    Also during the first weekends is the West Bottoms antique shopping. Some antiques shops have refitted a bunch of old warehouses and the first weekend of every month they open up. There are usually a bunch of food trucks and it's a lot of fun.

    The City Market on the river has a Farmer's Market every Saturday that runs year round.

    Let us know how Great Wolf is for you :)

    I've only know a few people who have been there to that particular one but it's been a staycation rather than a vacation.

    Thanks for all the good advice everyone!

    I think we have decided to attend the next event, I've met some DISboarders in other places we've lived and it is always a good time.

    Well that Marceline meet up was fantastic, thanks to everyone who planned it!

    Last night I thought of something for a future meet, maybe in the summer. What does everyone think about trying an escape room?

    We did one for my sister's bachelorette party she it was less of fun.
