BIG Post

Last Sunday was a BIG day here!
We went to Granite City for a 
delicious brunch...oh was it 
yummy!! There was a specific 
reason for brunching as you 
will see.  (Sorry lost the dang

Those crazy kids are taking 
selfies again!

Someone had a birthday and 
raked in some really good loot!

Here is the yummy birthday 
bundtlet cake. It is made by a 
company called "Nothing Bundt 
Cake." These are soooo moist and

The other excitement of the day 
was that the Kansas City Royals 
won the 2015 World's Series!!!!  
Such fun and we are so proud of 
our Boys in Blue!!!

This turns out to be the final score 
in game 5 of the series. Of course it 
had to go into extra innings!!

The exact time of the WIN and it is 
still my birthday! So nice of them to 
win the World Series on my big day!!!

News after the game!!

Boys arriving home the next day.

Parade day! Mr. Ken works at the 
courthouse in downtown KC and 
the parade route just happened to 
go right by his office.

An exciting time for Kansas City!!!

We were able to get a really good 
spot right his office building. Here
we are waiting for the parade to 
begin. I did not have school and
as far as I know no one had school 
that day, so I went to work with 

Waiting with a few of our "closest"

The parade begins with a giant replica
of THE trophy.

Here's Slugger! Our mascot.

Kansas City Mayor Sly James.

Dayton Moore, Royals General Manager.

The players....

This takes some explaining. Our third 
baseman's name is Mike Moustakas but 
the fans have shortened it to MOOSE.  
Well this guy above has an authentic 
moose rack (as you can see) that he
brings to all the games, so of course he 
was part of the parade. 

This is THE Mike Moustakas, he raised 
his hand just as I snapped the pic.

Our All star MVP pitcher for the 
World Series Sal Perez--Salvi for

Our coach Ned Yost and THE
real World Series Trophy.

The team headed down to Union Station

after the parade for a rally--we did not
do to that wildness.

According to city officials between the 

parade and the rally an approx 800,000
people were in attendance for the fun!!!
Now that my friends is A LOT of people.
Wow!!! A fun day for the city and for all
of us that live in the metro area. We all
our boys and are so excited to have 

the World Series Trophy here!!!

Told you it was a BIG post. :)
