This is one of my favorites from the entire trip.  The picture Bryce is holding is of me and Sarah at Garden of the Gods right after I proposed.  He is standing on the same rock that Sarah was setting on when I popped the question (which was followed by her saying, "Are you serious?"

Finally home from our trip.  Our last stop on our travels was Logan, Kansas.  Here is Bryce with the welcome sign for the town his middle name comes from.

Best friends.

I was going to add more pictures from yesterday and a short video but the internet here at the hotel works about as good as the air conditioning.  Second hotel in a row where we are having to move rooms.  Hopefully this one we won't have to completely change hotels.  This is a picture of Bryce with a penguin from the Pueblo Zoo.

When I was a kid, my dad took us to a lot of Civil War battlefields.  When we were at the Crater, it was raining but by golly, we got out of the car and looked at the big hole in the ground.  When we were at Mount Vernon, George Washington's house, I finally got it.  I had to duck going into his bedroom and I realized that he would have had to duck to go into his own bedroom.  Suddenly I realized, I was walking where history walked.  Today I drug my wife and son up a hill in hundred degree heat to look at ruts in the ground that were wagon wheel ruts from the Santa Fe Trail.  Sarah appreciated it about as much as Mom used to appreciate battlefields, but maybe one day Bryce will understand like I do now.  Thanks Dad!

Bryce had a much better time at the Lee Richardson Zoo that we went to today.

Day two of our trip started with a visit to the Wichita Zoo.  Bryce wanted to pet the big puppy.  

Second stop was the Kansas Cosmosphere.  Do you think I can get carpet like this for the  house.   

Finally we made it to Dodge City where Bryce was happy to be out of the car seat and out of his clothes.

Quite possibly one of the best burgers I have ever had. Bacon cheeseburger with an onion ring on top on a pretzel bun.

Tonight we took Bryce to his first Royals game.  He had a blast.  He was looking around, watching CrownVision, and flirting with the girls in the row behind us.  The only thing he didn't like was the cheering.  When the Royals scored, he cried. 
Chilling out on the HomeRun Derby trophy stand

Working on his grip.

He really wanted to grab the World Series trophy.

Him and Mommy loved the fountains.

He really did watch the game for a while.  

This is about the look that he had when we were on the scoreboard.

We taught them both how to shake.

If my lovely wife reads this she should be very worried that these might come home with us on Saturday. We are taking Bryce to his first game and I saw these in the gift shop tonight.

Or would these make a great mothers day gift for sarah.

Yesterday my boss at the Royals called all the guys who had worked the All Star game into his office. One of his bosses wanted to thank everyone for their hard work. We each got an All Star Game baseball and a Homerun Derby baseball.

I think that cinnamon roll might be bigger than his head.

Last night after the All Star Game, the boss said for everyone to meet in the booth.  We met and he told us we were going down to the field to take a group picture.  We start taking pictures and here comes Billy Butler who gets in the picture with us.  Wow, on the field with the Royals All Star!  Then this morning I'm watching sports center and I see this.  Once I get to the point where I'm no longer sleep deprived and can walk correctly (standing for 7+ hours for three days straight is tough on the knees) I am going to put my favorite pictures together into a slide show and will post it.  I also taped the segment from Sports Center and added it.

Lots of pictures today from the futures game and celebrity softball but this is my favorite. Sarah rocked the 5K this morning finishing in just over 38 minutes. Four months ago she had Bruce. I am so proud of her. This is her medal.

Guess what starts for me tomorrow?  Practice tomorrow and Saturday, then crew call at 8:00 am for Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday.  I will be on camera for the All Star Game, and Home Run Derby.  Not sure where I will be yet.

Tonight we had dinner at HyVee. A guy came over to look at Bryce. He took a harmonica out and played him a song. Bryce loved it.

This is the after picture that I actually sent out.

July 1, 2012

Somehow I missed a couple of days so there are late.  This is a picture I took of the All Star Game baseball.   I've been sending these out to try to get autographed by this years All Stars.  This is the before picture.  I edited it in lightroom.
