Going to Kansas City

This past Friday, I was able to go to a Royals game. Jump out of my seat excited!

If you have been here anytime at all, you know how I feel about my beloved hometown team.

I haven’t been to a game in exactly two years. It was the first time in all the years that I can remember that I missed a season and had to watch all from home. I just cannot even begin to describe how awesome it was to be back at Kauffman Stadium.

A place I have spent many summer afternoons and nights.

A place I have consumed hundreds of pretzels and cups of soda.

A place I have hung out with friends from every stage of my life.

A place I have watched the greats and lows of baseball.

A place that will always be home to me. (I did learn how to ride my bike in this parking lot.)

This weekend was the I-70 showdown. For those of you not from the great state of Missouri, this is the game series between the Royals and Cardinals. I now live right in the middle of St. Louis and Kansas City, so I am surrounded by many more Cardinals fans than I have ever been before (unfortunately).

My sister-in-law happens to be one of those fans.

Now since I live here, we are going to try to go to one game in each city as a sister date. And of course we are going to have matching outfits.

This year the Kansas City game also happened to have an alumni event from our Alma Mater. So we were able to support the Mules and our favorite baseball team.


Friday’s game was so much fun to watch. To see the magic of this team in person is just so wonderful.

We both got to enjoy some KC food magic in the form of popcorn. This cheese popcorn is the bomb!


And of course it was much sweeter that we (my Royals) won, and also won the series.


They have done some great things to make the park even more beautiful. I am so happy to be back so I can make it to more games. You really should check out a game here if you ever come to KC.

I can’t wait to take George later this summer!

As Tom stated this weekend, “My family is so into the Royals that all of our eyes are blue.” (True statement.)

Did you watch some baseball this weekend? Have you ever had cheesy popcorn?

  1. So glad you were able to go!! We won’t be able to make it to the K this year because they’re playing elsewhere when we’re in town in June… boo! 😦 But they are playing the Reds in Cincinnati an hour away in August, and I am SO excited!! 🙂

    • That is so sad! But at least you will be able to see them on the road!!! Being in KY last year, there were no big league teams anywhere near us for that opportunity.

I would love to hear your thoughts!
