Monday Mentionings: August 8

I feel like this last week went fast, and the weekend went super fast! It’s Monday again, so here we go!

I got some fancy candies at work from a client last week, which was really nice of them to do for me.  I shared them with the floor, so everyone got some chocolates.

Thursday night at KC Running Co., we finished our VERY HOT run and were given some delicious watermelon afterwards.  Watermelon after a run is just one of those perfect combinations.

Friday, after work, my Aunt Leann, Uncle Steve, and cousin Ava came to KC to visit for the weekend.  Saturday, we did a bit of shopping at Oak Park Mall, and Ava and I had lots of carousel rides too.

After fun at the mall, we hit up the pool.  Ava is quite the little fish in the water.

Saturday evening, we went to the Royals game…. Ava’s first Royals game!  She had lots of fun watching the Boys in Blue win against Toronto.  She cheered for the mustard hot dog during the hot dog derby, but relish won.  [Ava was reading along as I was writing this post, and she said “But they were in white, not blue!! Leann and I cracked up, she has quite the reading comprehension going on!]

She even got a “first game certificate” from the Royals Guest Services team.  I’d say she’s a new lifetime Royals fan.

Leann and I got my favorite Royal ‘Ritas.  Mmmm tasty!

Ava and I had more carousel time in the Outfield Experience.  The weather for the game couldn’t have been more perfect Saturday night.  It was very cool for August and breezy.  Perfect weather.

After the Royals won(!!!), Ava did a bit more playing in the outfield before we headed back to my apartment.  I didn’t realize you could see the World Series Champs sign from the outfield experience area.  Just in case you forgot, ‘dem Roys won the World Series last year!!

Sunday, we ventured out to Chuck E Cheese’s for lunch.  Ava won lots of tickets, gave Chuck E  Cheese a hug and a high five, and we left with bellies full of pizza and Ava cashed in her tickets for a Chuck E Cheese ball to take home.

After some more shopping, we went back to my apartment for some relaxation time.   Jasper enjoyed his new catnip plant.

Once our energy levels were back up, Ava and I went down to the park to play for a bit.

We met up with some of Steve and Leann’s friends for dinner, then we got some yummy custard at Sheridan’s.  It was a great end to the weekend.

Today, we’ll hang out a bit more before Steve, Leann, and Ava head back to Hays this afternoon.

I don’t have too much planned for this week.  I’ll try to get in some runs while the weather is nice and unseasonably cool.  Have a great week, friends!!
