Julie's mom, Nancy, moved to Kansas City a few months ago and has been living with Julie's sister, Mary, and her family. She had been house hunting for awhile and put in a few bids on houses that weren't accepted. She finally found a house she loved and they accepted her offer. We are all thrilled to death for her and now the fun part of making the house hers begins. Right now she is in the process of taking down all of the wallpaper (and there was a lot of it)and repainting everything. She also had to buy her first ever mower and it is a nice one (can you say self propelled with an electric start). Congratulations Nancy.
A few Sunday's ago we decided to treat Julie's mom, Nancy, to a day at Powell Gardens which we all love. We started the day off by having the Mothers Day brunch at Powell and at first I thought it was a little pricey ($25 a person), but after eating it I have to say it was well worth the money and by far one of the best meals I have ever had. Afterwards we decided to walk around the garden and listen to the band playing. All in all it was a great day.

Every year there is a special services dance and this year they asked Lance to deejay it. Lance, of course, was up for this task and began putting together his dance set. Lance put together all of the classics for the dance: the Chicken Dance, Gagnam Style, YMCA, Call Me Maybe, and the ever popular Who Let The Dogs Out. The dance got off to a rousing start and here are a few of the stranger requests that Lance got: a song that a boy could do the robot to, a Smashing Pumpkins song, and my personal favorite was any song by Megadeath. All in all it was a fun time.

Yesterday we went and saw the movie 42. We both have been wanting to see the movie for quite some time, but we have been extremely busy. The weather was rainy yesterday, so we got up early and decided to see the matinee performance of it. We had high expectations going in and we were not disappointed in the least. What an amazing movie that we will definitely go and see again and not because we are both baseball fans. You earn a whole new respect for Jackie Robinson after watching this movie. The only thing Julie wished they would have done is shown what happened to him after his playing career had ended. All in all it was a movie we would recommend to everyone.

Every Royals game they play a game called Caption This on the scoreboard. They show a picture and you have to text a caption for the photo to possibly win. Lance always plays this, but has never won until last night. Lance texted in his caption like he always does, but 10 minutes later he got a phone call telling him he won and where to claim his prize. Lance ended up winning a $50 gift card and having his name announced. Below you can see the winning caption on the scoreboard and Lance's gift.
