Happy Memorial Day!

It has become our tradition to kick off Summer by heading to Celebration at The Station. It is a great way to honor those that serve and have served our country, and to honor those that have passed while serving. We always pack a picnic dinner and head out early enough to enjoy the weather and catch up with friends while listening to the KC Symphony.

This time we made sure to pack our picnic clean and healthy. With just a little planning it was easy to accomplish. In our picnic basket we had:
*Mary's Gone Crackers (gluten free,yummy, and made with no oils!!)
*homemade egg salad
*organic tortilla chips
*homemade salsa
*chai pudding
*preserved peaches from last year
*some beers (okay well not clean but we were celebrating!)

My favorite part of the night is when they start the light display on Union Station...

And it always ends with the most spectacular fireworks display over Liberty Memorial...

Happy Memorial Day!!
