Everything's up to date in Kansas City

Deanne and I took Anna to her OB appointment today. I played blocks with Daniel in the waiting room and Deanne got to go back with Anna to talk pregnancy/delivery stuff. Afterwards, we went out to eat at IHOP. Sausage and pancakes are high on Daniel's list of desirables.

Returning to their home, Anna zonked out for a nap on doctor's orders. Deanne spent most of the afternoon entertaining Daniel. I unpacked and arranged books in their library for four hours. Gives a whole new meaning to the name Boxing Day.

After Brian got home, I guided Anna, Brian, and Daniel up to the Cabela's mother ship while Deanne went back to our hotel to rest a bit. Then we all met up at BD's Mongolian Barbecue for dinner. Dessert was back at the house, where Anna and Brian had made a key lime ice cream to go with a key lime cheesecake topped with a key lime curd. Wow.

We've enjoyed seeing all the pictures of snow back home. It's cold here, but no white stuff. Save some for us! We'll be back on Friday.
