After Manhattan, Chase and I headed down to stay with Brad's family for the rest of our visit. I am going to try to update in several short posts. The long ones stress me out and take forever. Brad's cousin Jim is a firefighter so we asked if we could come visit since Chase is obsessed with anything transportation. He was a little intimidated at first but then loved it!
After my grandparents house and visiting friends in Kansas City, my next stop was Manhattan. Fond memories here of when I went to KSU. My brother Stevenis working on his PHD there so I asked if I could spend a couple days with him and his wife, Melissa. We had so much fun!
The splash park
What do we do on a 100 degree day - have a fire and make smores!
Checked out the zoo.
Had to wait out a thunderstorm. It doesn't look like its raining much in this picture...
but here you could tell we got some rain!
The next day we headed out to the lake with Melissa's family. Chase was so good in the water and we even got him to jump off the diving board by himself.
Steven likes watching golf and tried to get Chase interested. After studying it on TV for a while we figured we better try it ourselves. Let me just say I'm glad no one else was there and that we didn't pay!
Watching it on TV. Clapping along with everyone else.
One thing I wanted to do was walk around campus. I can just see myself 16 years from now moving Chase into his dorm.
What the parking garage looks like across from the union. One of the new additions.
Thanks Uncle Steven and Aunt Melissa for a great weekend! You can also check out their blog for more pictures.
