Our Day at the K

Last Friday night, our group of friends, sans the kiddos, all went to the Kansas City Royals game, and it was a BLAST! Such a much needed night out with out the kids! It's so important to take the time out to just have a good time with our friends every once in a while. It was $1 night, so hot dogs, peanuts, and soft drinks were $1, that part was definitely nice!

It's probably HIGHLY inappropriate that I'm about to tell this story on my blog, but let me tell y'all, we sat behind the most FASCINATING people I think I've ever met. These gals all looked like they belonged on the Real Housewives of Orange County. They were all pretty, and had the cutest kiddos, but.... they were clearly all SWINGERS! It was the most bizarre thing I've ever seen. All of us girls spent most of the baseball game trying to figure out what gal went with what husband/kids, and then Melisa and I got to talking to one of the gals, and she introduced us to them all, and from then on out the pieces started fitting together. One guy would grope another mans wife, the women were all UBER touchy feely with each other, and not in a 'friendship' type way. One of the gals even had a bag of wine in her purse (the bag that comes in boxed wine), I'm telling you they were a trip! I think I watched more of them than I did at the game, HA! It was ridiculous! They were all super nice, just an odd dynamic. Although we did get one of them to take a group photo of us (minus Ashley because she was in the restroom, boo :( )  These people totally made the night interested, oh AND the Royals won, which was nice since they had been on an 8 game losing streak, whoop! 

We had a group photo taken of us when we got inside the stadium (thanks A)...


Here are some of the photos I took...

Fun! I want to go to a game this summer. My husband has never been since we moved in 09 and I couldn't tell you the last time I visited the K!

And people watching is one of my favorite pastimes. I would have been in heaven with a group like that to analyze!

Looks like you all had a blast! I'm so jealous of your adult group outings. That is something that I wish we did but just don't. We never have, probably because Chad and I still run with basically separate groups of people.

Fun night out! Growing up, my mom was a big KC Royals fan--acutally, I think she was just more of a George Brett fan, haha!

I've actually seen the 'ol wine bag in the purse trick at a Nascar race before! The redneck side of me thought it was genious! ;) I shouldn't openly admit that, though!

Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Who cares if you were in the nosebleeds? Looks like you had a perfect shot of the entire field! (despite that the players probably looked like ants)

Sounds like y'all had a blast! Baseball games are always fun to go to.

It looks like you all had a great time! Love, love, love the story, I actually was giggling the whole time I was reading!

I didn't know that you were a Royals fan. I live in STL and we are big Cards fans. Let me know if you guys ever want to come over for a Royals/Cards series. I have season tix.
