The Challenge: Find enough free and awesome things to do to fill an entire Saturday. Not only did we succeed but we actually had options to choose from.
7:55 a.m. Wake up because our bodies are programmed to not sleep in. We're old. Shea abides by Saturday morning routine and makes pancakes while I lie in bed thinking big thoughts.
11 a.m. Finally shower after watching Arrested Development and Darfur Now. Free on instant Netflix.
12 p.m. Free Boulevard Brewery Tour. Very cool, and gave us even more respect for Boulevard Beer. Plus, we got to taste four beers, for free. New favorite was Boss Tom's Bock. We left quite relaxed :)
1:30 p.m. Lee's Summit Kite Festival. Free admission, and a super relaxing way to enjoy the nice weather by laying in the grass and watching the sky. The flyers included both professionals and kids flying kites, music and booths.
5 p.m. Went to Joe's Pizza at Kelly's in Westport. We got a coupon in the mail for a free large pizza to welcome us to the neighborhood. We felt very welcomed. And full.
7:30 p.m. Attended a free concert by the Kansas City Civic Orchestra at the Folly Theater downtown. Major nostalgia for my Gold Orchestra days.
We went from pancakes to beer to Beethoven's Symphony No. 3. Cost of such a diverse, relaxing and fun day? Priceless. Literally.
