Share the Fun

 The first part of this year has been taken up with Share the Fun, the county 4H talent show.

Alice was Mary Poppins in our club's large group act.
 Jack was Mickey Mouse!

 Alice also was Alice in Wonderland.  Her Mary Poppins costume had velcro down the back so she could make a fast wardrobe change!

 The cast of the large group act!

 Mickey and Minnie were interviewed about their 4H club.

Alice and the White Rabbit

 They worked so hard on this and they did such a great job!

They won first place!

Wichita (Day 2)

 We started out our second day at the Museum of World Treasures.

 They've got just about everything there!

 Alice was really interested in the mummies.

 Looking presidential!

 There's just so much to do and see there!

 In the afternoon we visited the Sedgwick County Zoo.

 I'm pretty sure we took a picture with just about every statue they had!

 And of course we saw the real animals, too!

 I love watching the otters!

We made it home that evening, very tired!  We had a great time, though, and I would love to go back to Wichita and explore some more!

Wichita (Day 1)

 Back at the end of September we went to Wichita for a couple of days to get away.  We started off at Exploration Place.

 They had a super hero exhibit there at the time.

 They had lots of fun super hero challenges you could try!

 One of their permanent features is a huge castle area.

 You're never too old for the water table!


 Also included there is mini golf right by the river!

 We spent the afternoon at Cowtown.

 The train depot.

 Playing checkers!

 The streets look just like an old town!

 The kids loved the rope swing.

 Their favorite thing was the school, though!


 Since we'd never been to Wichita before, I wasn't sure where to get a hotel.  The one we chose was nice, but clearly wasn't intended as a family destination.  The hot tub had a limit of 4 people and the pool wasn't a whole lot bigger!
