Last weekend, Kye was practicing baseball with his metal bat. Kris got really excited and wanted a turn too and just as Kye was swinging, Kris ran up to him. He caught Kris in the cheek, not the eye fortunately, but he looks like he won the prize fight!
Kye is also loosing his front tooth, it's wiggling all over the place!

Moon Marble Company

Kye's Tiger Cub group went to the Moon Marble Factory in Bonner Springs this month. They showed them how to make marbles and taught them some fun games. I highly recommend this trip! There are some really cool marbles there!

Pumpkin Picking

We made our annual trip to Johnson Farms this month. They have a wonderful selection of pumpkins and gourds. The boys like the pumpkins, I LOVE the gourds! All those fun shapes and colors. For me, the bumpier and lumpier they are, the better!
They added a pig race this year and Kye's pig won! The farmers are very friendly, willing to answer the 150 questions the boys had about EVERYTHING!! They also had a pumpkin "Muncher" and a pumpkin launcher this year. We could have stayed all day watching that!

Bye Bye Royals......

Yesterday was the Royals last game of the season. Although we are not die hard fans, an occasional game or two is fun. We managed to make it to two games this season and also went to the T-Bones twice. It was the last game for Buddy Bell, the manager, and for Mike Sweeney, the first baseman. Dave and the boys were down front during the National Anthem and got some good pics of Mike up close. Dave said Mike had a hard time during the National Anthem. Can't imagine how hard it must be for him to walk away after all these years.
During the whole game, Kris kept saying "GO TBONES!!" I'd say, "No Kris, Go Royals," and he would respond with "GO TBONES!!" He was so enthusiastic about it, I just gave up after awhile. The game ended with two injuries though, a fan a couple of sections away got hit with a fly ball, and moments later, Alex Gordon, the third baseman, got it right above the eyes. It was a beautiful day and we had a great time even though the Royals lost, AGAIN!!
