The Quick KC Edition

This week didn't really feel like a week. More like a couple of regular days sprinkled with a weekend right in the middle. The week seemingly zoomed right on by. Too bad every week doesn't have a weekend built right in. I could get on board with that.

Moving along to the highlights. 

We were in KC for roughly 36 hours, and we made each and every hour count during our brief stay.

1. The World Series!
The biggest factor in getting us home. For more on that 14 inning, 5 hour and 9 minute goodness, check out yesterday's post. 
While we were there we picked up just a liiiiiiiittle bit of Royal swag.
You'd think we didn't own any at all. 
Just for fun, comparing the 2014 and 2015 baseballs.
The top ball came from AT & T Park in San Francisco.
The bottom ball came from Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City.
2. Grandma and Grandpa!
While Scott and I were basking in baseball glory Marcus and Julia were able to spend quality time with Grandma and Grandpa Macke. 

3. Cousins!
Along with hanging with grandparents, Marcus had an absolute blast with two of his three cousins. 

4. For real fall!
The weather, the colors, the need for sweatshirts! For one day we were able to enjoy all of that. It was a dream. 

5. Travel buddies. 
The kids rocked traveling. There were 4am wake up calls, four flights total, a two hour time change, and a complete disruption of our normal schedules, all in 36 crazy hours. Yet, both babes were amazing. 

Here's to a fun filled weekend complete with: Fall Festivals, Trick or Treating, candy comas that are sure to follow, and Games 3, 4, and 5 of the World Series - with hopes and dreams of KC taking it all! 
Have a fabulous weekend!
