It’s not often I get to steal away with my two high school BFFs
for a weekend to reconnect and recharge. A weekend without kids and significant
others means time for us to catch up, share stories, and celebrate with great
food and shopping.
As someone who grew up in Kansas City, the Legends Shopping Area is something sort of amazing for me. In a short time, the entire Village West area has sprung up as an entertainment mecca in a most unlikely spot.Now that we are a family of five, I find a quick trip to The Legends can give us the feeling that we have had a “get away” without having to travel very far.
In our family “Eisenhower” most often refers to the aircraft carrier where my husband spent six years in the Navy. We saw the ship this summer. So, it only seemed appropriate to take the boys to the place where the real Ike lived here in Kansas.
Dwight D. Eisenhower was the Kansas boy who helped save the world. He was one of the greatest members of “The Greatest Generation” becoming Supreme Allied Commander during World War II and serving two terms as the 34th President of the United States.
