Another exciting Kansas City weekend

Jake and I went home for the holiday weekend for several reasons. We had a wedding, a few family members who needed some extra love, and naturally we needed some good KC barbecue. While my work life is about to get crazy, it was a perfectly timed trip.

We have now learned that in order to see everyone over these weekends we simply have to split up and do the best we can. It can be exhausting, but oh so wonderful to spend time with our family and friends he in KC. I even managed to have a few afternoons of bonding time with my parents, including a yummy dinner at the new Mexican restaurant on the plaza with Pud.

Friday night was Brian and Tracey’s wedding. Mum was the officiant, and she did an amazing job of making everyone laugh and feel excited about being inside in light of all the rain. Tracey looked stunning of course!

Padre and I were able to fit in a 125 mile ride on Sunday morning, stopping at a little diner outside of Perry, KS for some breakfast. I ride a 2002 V-Rod, and Padre rides a 2009 Softail.

On our last morning of the trip, I went for a refreshing run and passed by Nicholas KemperĀ in Loose Park. Little did I know that Lotte was in town too! After my Mum’s delicious French toast, we went to meet the KempersĀ for a latte at the Roasterie. It was the perfect end to a wonderful weekend in Kansas City.
