Anyway, we were putting all the groceries away and who decides the empty spot in the pantry is just the right size for him??? Mr. Scruffypants. This is NOT acceptable. But cute. Silly Cat!
When we got back from dinner, I realized that we had library stuff due TODAY!! back in the van, out to the mall and we got the stuff returned before $1 a day fines for videos kicked in. Vacation is truly over!

I saw this little stuffed animal and had to get it. Nick thought it was too cute and Becca thought it was scary beyond all reason. I'm sure if Scott "knew" about it, he'd think it was stupid to spend $5 on. I'm happy! LOL

2/3 of the Hoxsie Kids
It just so happens that while we were in KC, Steve had a job (he also travels for his job) there too. He brought his wife & kids. And, Kevin had a few days off from work so he brought his wife & kids to KC & stayed in the same hotel the Steve did. Unfortunately, we are staying 30 miles away from where they were. We tried to get together yesterday but it didn't work.
But tonite, Kevin, Missy & the kids were at a flea market about 4 miles from our hotel. They finished up about the same time that Scott finished his work. We met up at Texas Roadhouse. It could not have been more perfect. The twins were occupied and calm the entire time. Becca & Marissa sat at a table with Nick & Matt while us adults and the twins sat at one right across from the kids. Everyone had a good time & we got to visit and eats TONS of good food (so much food that I brought my entire entree home w/me!) It was a very nice visit.

We went to the mall across the highway from our hotel today. When we got back to the car, this is what it said. YIKES. I don't think it was really this hot (I didn't bother to notice what it was by the time we got to Outback for dinner!) but it was VERY WARM!!! I'm ready to move to Minnesota!!!
Today, we left for Independence MO. Scott has 4.5 days of audits to do so the kids & I tagged along for one last trip before school starts. It was an uneventful trip. We arrived in Independence about 3:30, went to an early dinner (we skipped lunch) and then to find a Target and/or Walmart to pick up some supplies: candy, soda, Edwards Frozen pie. You know, hotel necessities. We have a 2 bedroom suite at the Residence Inn w/a FULL kitchen and 2 bathrooms. This is what I call roughing it!!
Sometimes it would leak from the pipe (as seen yesterday) or sometimes it would leak onto the light fixture and then run all the way across the light (and INTO the light). Since we are going to be gone all next week, we decided we had to insure the rug didn't get ruined. We put plastic drop clothes down & then put towels to hopefully absorb the gook.
We called a plumber & he has to take out the vanity and cut a whole in the wall to get to the problem. He couldn't finish it that afternoon & would have had to charge us HUGE amounts to finish it after 5. We scheduled him to come back on 8/10, 3 days after we get back from KC. We can't use the upstairs sink until after then. The kids are brushing their teeth & washing their hands in the tub. Fun!
