We had a fun time celebrating the 4th of July (on the 5th) with family at Powell Gardens in Kingsville, Missouri just about 30 miles outside of Kansas City. Powell is the perfect setting for a picnic and fireworks display. The Lee’s Summit Symphony set the mood with music including the Raiders of the Lost Ark theme which pleased this fanboy’s ears.
Powell Gardens is always a wonderful place to visit and especially now during Chapunga - an exhibit of stone sculptures from Africa.
The first lady did a fab job at snapping some of the fireworks.
