However, the day took an interesting turn. Guests into the house kept asking us why we weren’t with the other activities, or with “all the other people?” It turns out that a block away there was an event going on to benefit Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City. It’s called Big Slick, an interesting fundraiser in which Missouri-native celebrities such as David Koechner, Rob Riggle, Paul Rudd, Eric Stonestreet, and Jason Sudeikis come out and show support for this amazing cause.
So, about an hour after we opened the doors, we closed them. Packed up. And relocated a block away,
Not too soon afterwards, we were inundated by celebrity fans. Even though they weren’t there to see us, it was a great way to spend the day. Though the celebs didn’t stop by the house because of their extremely tight schedule, Steph did get smiled at by Paul Rudd, and when they all left the building, everyone in the celebrity bus waved at us even though all we could see were outlines (the windows were tinted, but we could see that at least one celeb was EXTREMELY excited to see us and the tiny house.

As for all you Museum at Prairiefire guests, we spoke to the director and we look forward to returning to the museum next time we are in town and offering a free presentation. We’ll keep ya posted on dates!
