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

The other excitement of the day
was that the Kansas City Royals
won the 2015 World's Series!!!!

Parade day! Mr. Ken works at the

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

parade and the rally an approx 800,000
people were in attendance for the fun!!!
Now that my friends is A LOT of people.
