Weekend Wrap up

Woot woot! After moving extravaganza 2009 we were ready for some fun. And some beer....lots of beer! Luckily this weekend proved to have plenty of both!! We kicked off the weekend Friday night at the American Royal. The Royal is an International BBQ contest which appropriately happens here in the land of BBQ....Kansas City! I had never been, but it's basically one big par-tay with tons of to die for BBQ (of course) along with private parties, DJ's, BEER, more BBQ, more beer and fireworks...yes I do believe there were fireworks. :) My family's company sponsored two tents so we were able to hop from party to party and had a blast!
Saturday we woke up early to drive on down to Arrowhead Stadium for the Big 12 kickoff where my KState Wildcats took on the Iowa State Cyclones. Neither team is very good, so it actually proved to be a good match up and a great game! In the last seconds, Iowa State scored a TD...all they needed was to kick the extra point and the game would be forced into OT. Our seats were 7 rows up, just caddy corner to the goal posts. We watch the kick go off, then out of no where 3 Kstate players jump higher then I've ever seen before and totally block the kick. Oh.My.God. We just won. Lot's of screaming, jumping and high fiving in total disbelief. We are officially NOT in last place in the Big 12. This season...that may be all we get! Go Wildcats!!!

You are too sweet! I have NO clue why someone was super mean to me either...I guess they have no life! ;)

Looks like you had a wonderful weekend! A bbq festival?!?! YUM! Count me in next time! :)

Camping in a cabin probably would have kept me MUCH warmer than I was all weekend but, it was soooo relaxing so I shouldn't complain!

We were there too!! Wasn't it a great night? My bro-in-law won 3rd place for his baked beans.... next year he's taking on pork. That sounded weird.

Have a great week!!

I'm glad you got to have some fun after the big move! The BBQ contest sounds like a blast and quite delicious. Geof just got back on Friday from a business trip to Kansas City. He said he really liked it there!

The game sounds like fun and yay for your team winning! :)
