Last Friday morning, Heidi and I loaded up the Mazda (also known as the Oven, since it has no AC) and headed south on I-35. We arrived in Centerville, Iowa around 4 pm. I played a round of disc golf at the city park while Heidi did some shopping. (I played poorly and lost a disc in the creek.) After that we drove over to Uncle Jim and Aunt Marla’s place. We spent an enjoyable evening eating and talking. Uncle Jim is Heidi’s great uncle and one of the more interesting people I have ever met.
After breakfast in Centerville, we got back in the Oven and drove to Kansas City. Heidi’s long time friend Tammy met us for lunch at Panera. Afterward, I left them to shop and do girl stuff while I met up with my buddy Peter for a round of disc golf. We had fun, even though he beat me by one stroke. The course we played, Swope Park, was great. After we finished I picked up Heidi and we shared an excellent meal with Peter and Elizabeth. Mention must be made of their awesome baby, Glorie. What a cutie. We enjoyed hanging out with them.
On Sunday morning we had breakfast with Peter and Elizabeth, and headed out for brunch with PJ, Heidi’s mother’s best friend, and her husband Joe. We had a good time. On the drive back home we had a passenger. Sue, a British woman who was returning home via Minnesota, rode back with us. She was great and never complained about how hot it was in our car, even with the windows down.
Over the course of the weekend we had four support appointments and I got to play two rounds of disc golf. I would call that a productive weekend. It was also the second time that we visited KC but did not spend time at the International House of Prayer. I guess we will need to return to KC again.
