A Trip to Fritz’s

Last month I was able to travel home to Kansas City to visit family for about a week.  While there, my mom suggested we take my son to Fritz’s, which was pretty much the greatest idea ever.  Fritz’s is a bit of a Kansas City establishment.  Their original location opened in the 50’s.  They serve hamburger’s and hot dogs.  It’s good food, but you don’t really go there for the food.  The restaurant is set up as a railroad.  Servers will greet you and bring you drinks. Then, you call in your order on a phone at each table and a train delivers your meal.  The whole experience pretty much made my 3 year old’s entire year.

Erika grew up in Kansas City but now finds herself quite at home amidst the giant evergreens of Washington state.  She is a mom to a fearless 3 year old, a wife to an incredible man that loves to travel about as much as she does, and a lifestyle/documentary family photographer.  For Erika, bad days can be turned around and good days can be made even better by good coffee, craft beer, yoga, or baking.
