WWI and Harvey's

Jun 24, 2015
Nathan and I were able to have a day date a couple weeks back and since it was something on Our List I wanted to post about it to be able to link it to the list. We had bought Groupons for the two places we went and they were both so good!

Our first stop was Harvey's at Union Station which is a restaurant right in the middle of Union Station. It has two stories and is such a cute place. The food is a tad on the expensive side but they serve large portions and have great food so it evens out. We went for brunch and we had so much food that we couldn't finish it at all! We ended up taking most of our giant cinnamon roll home with us.

The funniest thing happened too! We were walking around Union Station after eating and we saw two tourists taking pictures of each other. I stopped and offered to take a picture of the both of them together and they accepted. After I took their pictures, they asked if we wanted a picture so we said sure and began to pose. The man taking the pictures wanted us to make sure they were fine and when we got to them they were all blurry. He knew something was wrong and insisted on taking them again and I showed him how to focus first. We ended up getting one good picture out of it all and I just had to laugh about the situation. I didn't want him to feel bad that the pictures were blurry so I wasn't going to say anything but he insisted on retaking the pictures.

And the good one...

Our next stop was the National WWI Museum and Liberty Memorial. On our way in I had just taken these two pictures when a bird POOPED on my arm! Luckily I was just grazed and it didn't get on anything other than my arm.

We entered and walked over the Flander's Field display of the poppies which are fake, but beautiful. My picture of the poppies is not very good, the lighting was bad and I tried to zoom :/ oh well. We walked through the entire museum soaking up the First World War from the weapons and outfits to the vehicles and trench warfare displays. The first half of the museum is all about the war before the United States was brought in and the second half is after. If you are ever in the KC area, I highly recommend stopping here. The really tall portion of the museum is actually the Liberty Memorial which was built in the 1920's I believe. You can go up it if you have a ticket from the museum or you can just stay on the lower portion. The view of KC is absolutely beautiful! You can see the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts, the Sprint Center, the Western Auto sign, Union Station, and all the other wonderful buildings.

It was such a fun day and I was so glad to just be spending time with Nathan. We don't go on a lot of dates so this was extra special. 

Have you ever gone to the WWI Museum or Liberty Memorial?

  1. Looks like you had a wonderful day! It's funny how I lived in KC for a few years but never did make it to some of those spots that get labelled as more" touristy". I guess because my husband had already been when he was younger? I don't know but now I regret it!!

    And so funny about the picture situation, glad you eventually got one because it turned out so cute!

  2. Looks like a wonderful time! The blurry pictures made me laugh, too. I hate when that happens! But at least you ended up getting a really good one in the end :)




Thanks for stopping by and leaving me a comment. It means so much to me and I truly am thankful for each and every one!
