Baseball, hotdogs, apple pie and Chevrolet . . .

Coming to you from the Kansas City Royals Stadium . . .

Our daughter and son-in-law invited us to a special celebration of the 4th of July!  What could be more American than a day spent at the baseball field!!  We will certainly have some baseball and hotdogs - not sure about the apple pie - and at this present time in our lives - it's Ford all the way!

What's not to like about a crowded baseball stadium?

     Weather - 80 degrees in July??  Who even KNEW this could happen in Kansas!

     People -  Other than a couple of Cleveland Indian Fans seated nearby - it was a great group!

     Noises -  Pipe organs playing "Let's Go Royals!" and "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" where
     everyone sang along.  Cheers from the crowd to honor an Iraq Veteran present in the crowd.
     Lots of cheering - especially for the grand slam and home run back to back!  

     Food/Drinks - Interestingly, we purchased "All you can eat seats" - and so with our wrist bands
     we  could order four items at a time - pop - pretzels - nachos - hotdogs - or peanuts.  Why is ball
     park food so tasty!!

     Music - One of the highlights for me was the surprise that Kansas City native David Cook, 
     winner of  American Idol sang The National Anthem!!!   We were big David Cook fans at our  

It was a great day at the ball park and we noticed many changes and nice additions since we had been there before.  The tiny replica of the ballfield for kids to play on and compete - our kids would have loved that!  Beautiful stadium!  Great atmosphere!  Friendly workers! I can mark this item off of my Summer Bucket List - and add it to my "let's do that again" list!
