And we went back. After a successful, shorter stay at Horseshoe Canyon Ranch in 2009, Jay and I ventured back in August 2011 for a full week. Our trip this time took us through Kansas City as I have become quite fond of one of the vendors at River Market Antique Mall.
My work travels in admissions had me in Kansas City many times, but I never got to take advantage of seeing the sites. And while we didn’t do much but spend the night, head to the antique mall and enjoy Fritz’s, it was tons of fun watching the kids and animals enjoy themselves in the fountain.

“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.”
Mark Twain, The Innocents Abroad/Roughing It
