Neither Mom or I had ever been here before, but Wichita, Kansas was a great place to visit. Mom went to see Morgan dance - she is a good dancer! Dad and I came up later that weekend so we could spend some time with Mom and Morgan. It was a fun trip with just us guys driving up. Mom left the new Jeep home and rode with Morgan so Dad and I got to take it. It's the first time I got to ride in the Jeep. Darn thing is so big, Dad had to lift me up in my seat. But I like it!
We stayed at the Hotel at WaterWalk. It's conveniently located in downtown, only a few blocks from Century II where the dance contest was being held. The room was comfortable and it even had a fireplace. I almost wished it was colder so Mom would make a fire. There is nothing like sleeping in front of the fireplace on a cold night. But the bed was the most comfortable I have ever been in - besides my own - so I had to settle for that.
After giving Morgan some congratulatory nose kisses (Hip Hop Cuties won first place!) Mom, Dad and I went to Sedgwick County Park. It has lakes, and a playground, and even a place to go fishing. Dad loves to go fishing but he didn't want to go this time. We just walked on the paths and enjoyed the sunshine. Mom, Dad and I have not all had time to go for a walk together in a while so it was nice.
After that, we went walking through Old Town Wichita. Mom loves old buildings and the old brick warehouses here seemed to interest her. I'm don't care much about old buildings. But I did enjoy walking some more with Mom and Dad. I am getting old so I was able to convince her to carry me for part of our walk. I liked that a lot!
We had to head for home after that. It's a bit of a drive. But we stopped at Jason's Deli on the way. I worked up quite an appetite after all that walking. Mom usually shares her lunch with me - at least a bite - but this time she had something called a Zucchini Grillini. Zucchini, spinach, and olives - yuck! But she liked it. Dad had a California Club. I got to have a bite of that and it was okay. Fortunately, Dad remembered to pack my food and some snacks before we took our trip. But I am going to have to talk to Mom before we travel again. She needs to remember that when we are eating on the road, she is ordering for two!
