The weekend after I got back from Utah, we took an unplanned trip to Kansas. My father-in-law was in a weird accident and pretty much shattered his ribs and collapsed a lung when he fell off a carnival ride he was helping with. We decided to head out there after he was released from the hospital to see if we could be of any help.
Dustin and Melissa helped at the lumberyard. Patty and I were pretty much in charge of keeping the kiddos off Grandpa and entertained.
So we swam in the pool.
Grandma worked miracles at breaking up and warding off competitive/jealousy fights between Gillian and Jack.
Lunch at the fun table with Grandma.
Oh and then there was the bee sting incident. Gillian and Jack were going outside to play in their Great Grandparent's backyard, when they both start crying and screaming. I run out to find that they both had been stung by some bees that were living under the porch stairs. It was pretty traumatic for both kiddos!
And we can't got to Kansas without enjoying some good fried food at Greg's! Here is Zander eating either a fried mushroom or fried spicy cheese balls!
On our way out of town we met Lynn and Patty after his doctor appointment in Hays. We decided to let me experience Long John Silver's for the first time and appease a craving of Dustin's.
Don't the boys look great in their pirate hats?
It was a short, unexpected, but fun and hopefully helpful visit to Kansas!
