Kansas City Soccer Trip

The boys favorite professional soccer team is Manchester United, and after World Cup this summer, they scheduled a US tour, playing exhibition games across the country. Carter's soccer team was able to score (no pun intended) great tickets to the game at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City. We ordered four tickets, assuming Scott and the boys would go. Because KC is only 3.5 hours away, we decided to just make it a one day trip. Our plans were for them to leave around noon...but at 11:00 that morning, Brady decided he didn't want to go. "Too far and won't be fun". Scott's parents offered to keep Cate and Brady half the day and drop them off to my parents around me and Scott, Bennett and Carter headed to KC for a wild 12 hours!

Our seats were 10 rows off the field!

54,000 came out to cheer on their favorite teams!


Kansas City has the neatest set-up...Chiefs football stadium directly next to the...
Royals baseball stadium. Very cool :)

Packed parking lot. $25 a car! Thankfully, Crista and Kathy stayed the night at a hotel across the street and we were able to park there for FREE!

Of course, our car got hit in the parking lot. When we walked up to the car after the game, a man and his daughter pulled up and said they saw our car get hit. A woman was driving through the lot in an Expedition while talking on her cell phone and ran right into our car. Luckily, she only broke off our license plate and marked up the bumper. Could have been so much worse!
