Kansas City Bound

We spent two days in Kansas City, Missouri this last week. While we were there we enjoyed walking through the Hallmark Visitor Center. It was very interesting. We watched a short movie focusing on the artists, and writers who work for Hallmark. It was amazing to look at the 90-year timeline, which includes samples of Hallmark products as well as photographs, press clippings, awards and other memorabilia. We were able to talk with a press operator and watch an anniversary card being produced. I was amazed that all the cards are checked by hand for any flaws. If you ever get a chance, stop by and walk through the visitor center.

We also went to the Ewing and Muriel Kauffman Memorial Garden. If you love plants and flowers, you need to check this out. I can only imagine how beautiful it is when everything is bloomed and the fountains are on, because the part that we seen was breathtaking. I will include a couple pictures here, and you can click on my link “Pictures I Have Taken” to see all of them.

On a different note, please remember my husband, Stan in prayer. He is having eye surgery next Thursday in Kansas City for a detached retina. We will be there for two nights.
