My daughter Becca was the first to arrive. Not long after was my son B.J., his wife Jenn and their son Jack!
One fun activity was to go to the Crown Center. Jack enjoyed Santa’s Gingerbread Village. (Crown Center Shops, Level 1 Atrium.) Three locomotives travel through a Santa’s gingerbread village in the North Pole, all created by the chefs at The Westin Kansas City and Sheraton Kansas City hotels. You can see the reindeer stable, Santa’s sleigh garage, the elves’ dorm, a doll, rocking horse, and ball factory, and even Mr. & Mrs. Claus’ home.
We also went to Sea Life. A most enjoyable afternoon!
And the colorful sea life at Sea Life:
Can you spot the fish? They are the vertical yellow and black stripes!
