Over Labor Day weekend, my younger brother Steve and his friend Justin came to visit, and since Steve is a pretty high energy, thrill-seeking kind of kid, so I thought an amusement park would be a good way to spend the day. Good thing we have such a nice one in the area!

I took the kids to see the Harlem Globetrotters at the Sprint Center in Kansas City. I grew up watching Meadowlark Lemon, Curly Neil and Goose on TV. The spirit of the team lives on with new players and the show was fantastic. The trick plays were timed perfectly and they do amazing things with a basketball. The announcer added excitement to the "championship game" by pointing out how close it was. Of course, the Globetrotters were victorious. Here's a few photos from the event.
