Everywhere my husband, Michael, and I went, we found people excited to see us, interested in what we were doing and always helpful.

I think that’s what I’ve enjoyed most about the 2011 Faces &amp; Places Tour –discovering amazing attractions and fun “right in my own backyard,” whether that be a trip across town on a Thursday evening, or a weekend getaway down the Kansas Byways to the other side of the state.‘Start your engines ... ’ Tue, 13 Sep 2011 07:00:00 GMT http://www.travelks.com/blog/post/2011/13/Fun-in-My-Backyard/1065/ Faces and Places Blog - Lecompton/Kansas City July 20, 2011 http://www.travelks.com/blog/post/2011/25/Faces-and-Places-Blog---Lecompton-Kansas-City-July-20-2011/798/ The Faces and Places Tour Suburban took off on a hot day this past Monday with the ultimate destination of Kansas City, Kansas and a T-Bones baseball game.To beat the heat, our first stop was at Rees ...

We set a course for Lawrence with three generations of my family, all of us enjoying varying parts of the trip.My favorite stop was downtown Lawrence. I’ve been to many farmers’ markets, but the Lawrence market had magically artistic flair that morning. Not simply trucks selling produce off a tailgate, these booths were festooned with tapestries, flowers and décor that made each purchase an adventure in temptation. I’m a fan of organic cooking and many displays offered treats I could fantasize feeding my family. My husband, son, and dear friend tried a vegan bacon-maple donut – a delicious first for them. Featuring savory food to eat on the spot, yummy produce and flowers to take home, and the music of multiple performers, the Lawrence farmers’ market is a delightful destination. We plan to go again when we have an entire morning to wander among the fun. Thu, 09 Jun 2011 07:00:00 GMT http://www.travelks.com/blog/post/2011/9/Faces-and-Places-Tour-June-4-5-2011/585/
