We just got back from a short trip to Kansas City. Jim had a couple days off work so we decided to go on a mini-vacation. When deciding where to go we consulted the Cardinals schedule. They were playing in Kansas City! Perfect! We left after Jack's tee ball practice on Saturday. Our friends Jake and Julie kindly let us stay at their home in KC. When we arrived on Saturday afternoon we took the kids to a petting zoo near their house. Jack got to ride this pony.
Jim and Patrick studied animal x-rays.
Jack got to milk a cow (it's not a real cow).
On Sunday morning we went to my cousin Katie's house for brunch. The food was delicious and it was nice to catch up with her, and meet her new husband Matt. You can tell from these pictures that we both married men that are considerably taller than we are.
Then it was time for the Cardinals game!
Kauffman Stadium is the fifth MLB stadium Jack has been to!
This was Patrick's first MLB game!
The game was fun. There were as many, or more, Cardinal fans as Royals fans. Too bad the Cardinals lost! My friend Kitty was in town from Denver and took this picture. Unfortunately I forgot to get a picture with her. It was really hot at the game, so we moved to the very top row of the stadium where we were in the shade and there was a slight breeze.
