Fun Day at the K

Today the Royals held an open house for potential season ticket buyers, so we thought we'd run over there and let the kids wander through the seats for some free entertainment. It turned out to be even cooler than we imagined- free hot dogs, drinks, Cracker Jacks, and popcorn, plus the chance to sit in all the seats, walk on part of the warning track and both dugouts, check out the Diamond Club restaurant and the swanky Crown Club private lounge, and tour the visitors' clubhouse. Plus 20% off in the team store! I got a clearance Billy Butler shirt for about $10. Great-Grandma Meyer had sent the kids each $5 so Ben excitedly picked out a pack of baseball cards and Elizabeth chose a set of 2 necklaces with big baseball beads (she wanted to touch everything else in the store first, though!). We will definitely try to check this out next year, even if season tickets aren't exactly in the budget!

Elizabeth makes a call to the visitors' bullpen- we could actually hear it ring in the outfield!

He wanted to run like Daddy & Uncle Eric did at the 5K.


Ben calls the Royals' bullpen and tells them to get Greg Holland ready to pitch.

The view from the $16,000 seats! (I am not kidding!)
