Escape the Museum

Everyday Adventure Episode 7: Museum of World Treasure

After dining on some delicious food, we were given the instructions: the museum was locked. Unfortunately time travelers had bee stranded in the museum, and it was up to us to help them get back. To send them back to their times we needed to solve the clues and riddles. Only upon solving all problems would the time travelers be sent back. 

Our Mission: Save the Space Time Continuum

We were broken into groups of 8. We began our adventure with everyone else, the race was on to win the prizes. The first few riddles were fairly simple, but then we began to slow down. After awhile we began to question ourselves. The riddles were getting harder, and the time was getting shorter.

The museum itself was inspiring. Amazing displays covered the walls. Artifacts from all across history were out for us to see. The dinosaurs in the middle were trapped in an endless battle, much like we felt we were. After time we found ourselves stuck in the Egypt room. There a lot of hopes were lost. Time was almost out, and we were no where close to figuring out the clue. 

In a blink of an eye it all changed, suddenly we figured it out! Then the next one! And the next one! As we raced to what we thought would be the end we were cut short, time was up and we had failed. Sorry Time Travelers, at least Wichita is a great place to land!

This adventure was a blast. New friends were met, laughter was shared, and memories were made. This museum is truly a jewel of Wichita. Check it out.

Everyday Adventures: Best Cupcake Search

There comes a time in everyone's life where they have to pinpoint the best place to get their baked goods. Today was that day. We went on a search to find the best cupcake on the east side! We stopped at Cloud 9 Cupcakes, Sweetly Scrumptious, Monica's Bundt Cakes, and Bagatelle Bakery. 

We were so lucky to meet the people that worked at these amazing places. Not only were the cupcakes delicious, but the people were extremely helpful and kind to us. 

We judged the cupcakes on 4 factors: richness of frosting, appearance, moistness, and what we called the "crumble factor". 

We each had a different favorite cupcake, but it's up to you Wichita. What is your favorite local cupcake spot?

Everyday Adventures: CityArts

There's something amazing about molten glass being shaped into something beautiful. We were so lucky to see the workings of how beautiful glass pieces are made. 

The heat hits you as you walk in, however the building is designed so that the room is open! Looking out over Wichita as you craft beautiful art is very symbolic. CityArts brings art and design to the heart of Downtown Wichita, and offers numerous classes to help others learn how to creatively express themselves. 

One word that truly describes the classes at CityArts is community. While the instructors are extremely helpful, the students themselves help each other out. It's not uncommon to see smiles and hear laughter as new friendships are forged over art.
