things that made my day: downtown edition.

last tuesday while my sister was back for spring break, we decided to revisit some of our spring break traditions from past years in the form of a downtown day. we don't get down there as much as we'd like, but we make it happen when we can.

first up was d'Bronx. we ate delicious pizza bigger than our heads.

then we left our mark. hot rod style.

next we visited prospero's and scored some fantastic old books and played on the awesome sliding ladders.

then we just walked that street, visiting the shops and checking out the graffiti and flags.

one of these shops had a real life rowdy. he was too legit to quit.

then we headed up to the memorial arch. not only is the arch itself fantastic, but there is a great view of the kc skyline from there.

after that we went down to the heart of the city and walked around.
