Weekend in Kansas City

We Tudors fans love a man in armor

I visited my lovely sister Elizabeth in Kansas City this weekend (yay!). I got there about noon yesterday, and first we had Chinese food for lunch, then we hit the Nelson-Atkins art museum.

This is one of Beth’s favorite paintings. I can see why!

Samurai Armor

Beth commented that this armor would probably fit her, although her feet are too big for the shoes.

We really dig the medieval armor. This prompted us to go back to Beth’s house and watch six hours of season three of the Tudors. We finished the season this morning.

And the picture you’ve been waiting for… the real reason I drove three hours in the snow:

… to snap a shot of my sister squeegeeing her windshield.

I had a blast hanging out with her and can’t wait to visit again! Of course, I was glad to get home, and I walked in the door to see that my amazing husband already had the TV turned to PBS so that I could plop right down and watch the next installment of Emma, which I am enjoying immensely. That’s the kind of little thing that makes me love Ryan more and more every day.

Have a good week, everyone!
