Over the last few days we have been doing our best to check off things on our list of things to do here. I think we were pretty successful this past weekend.
On Friday, Kyle was home early so we decided to finally check out the Carousel Museum in Leavenworth. I've heard awesome things about it. It has a vintage carousel that goes up to 13 miles per hour! That's insane to me. It was only $1.50/person and E loved it!
Afterwards we walked down to a local bakery called Sis' Sweets to indulge in some very delicious treats. It was so worth it!
Saturday morning we were up bright and early for the Flash Dash 5k in North Kansas City. This race was created in honor of a gentleman named Brandon Russell who passed away after running the Rock the Parkway Half Marathon last year. It was an amazing event. A ton of people turned out and even though it was a bit rainy, it cleared up for the start. It was also my last race here with my friend, Lauren.
Earlier this week I booked us a tour at the Roasterie in the city. It's one of the few facilities that air roasts their coffee beans. It's such a unique place and I'm so glad we were able to check this popular place off of our list. E even looked adorable in her hairnet haha.
The rest of the night was low key since we had another race on Sunday morning.
We headed off to Parkville for the Christmas in May 5k. This was officially mine and E's last race in the midwest (for now) and it was crazy haha. It poured rain the whole time!!! It was still a lot of fun though as a few of my SLAM sisters were running as well. We were soaked by the end but I'm glad we stuck it out and still did it.
We ended the weekend with a BBQ at a friend's house. It was a winner of a weekend to me!
We have a few more days to check off more on my list so hopefully we can make that happen. I hope you all had a great weekend!
