Wichita + Manhattan + Kansas City

11.08.2017 – 22.08.2017

So maybe this post should really be called “Genevieve and the people who love her.” (I had a hard time editing down all my G pics) Our trip back to Kansas was spent with our families, playing with our niece, Genevieve, a wedding of a dear friend, catching up with friends, and experiencing the solar eclipse. It was busy as always and there is never enough time. It is always good to be back in the Midwest.

Manhattan, Kansas

On to Manhattan! We drove through the beautiful Flint Hills to visit Rachel’s Alma Mater. We were so happy to celebrate the wedding of Shelby (college friend and roommate of Rachel) and Hayes! Cheers to the new Mr. and Mrs!

Kansas City // Lathrop, Missouri 

Our journey continued to Kansas City. We were able to see a few more friends, eat from two of our favourite BBQ joints, and most notably, view the solar eclipse! We picked a spot in Lathrop, MO, directly on the line of totality. Thunderstorms and seemingly endless traffic could not take away from this incredible experience. We parked in the middle of a corn field at the site of a soon-to-be Baptist church. Surrounded by dozens of people from all over the US, we were able to view the partial eclipse. While a large storm moved through right as we entered totality, we were still able to experience the world going dark for about 2 minutes at 1:07pm.
