Do you love soccer? I love soccer. I love playing soccer, watching soccer, and reading about soccer. I grew up playing soccer. Nearly every day of my childhood included playing soccer at Ed Alvey park right down the street from where I grew up.
So, rightfully, I love that Kansas City, Kansas, is such a vibrant home to soccer. In my youth, I never imagined soccer being so popular in our community. The Swope Park Rangers are something that my wildest dreams couldn’t fathom.
The team is

Nothing is better than summer. The days are longer, the sun is shining, and life moves a bit slower. But don't let me forget to mention the best part: baseball.
Do you like to exercise? Do you like to eat? I like to do both so I thought I'd check out the Armourdale Hike & Bike Route (exercise) and El Pollo Rey (eating). Those two activities alone take up roughly eighty percent of my day, but it's time well spent. So put on your exercise shorts and your eating bib and do as I do, or don't, but you definitely should.
Hey, I can fly. Let me explain… I can fly with the help of a zip line, a few D-rings, and some great tour guides. But in the pictures, it looks like I can fly!
I recently visited Zip KC - a zip line course that sends you flying through the forest at speeds up to 60 miles per hour! I had never been zip lining before so I wasn’t sure what to expect - maybe I’d hit a tree, maybe I’d drop my camera, maybe a tree would drop my camera (anything is possible), but luckily none of that happened and I had an amazing time!
Despite our children being young, travel is something our family is big on. There's something so special about experiencing new adventures as a family. The main thing we've learned about family travel is that it should involve RELAXATION! So many times, as parents, we embark on vacations overwhelmed, overbooked, and overstressed... only to return home feeling the same way. I'm guilty of this. I vowed to do just the opposite on my family’s staycation to Kansas City, KS… and I succeeded! I picked up a few tricks along the way.
I’ve always considered myself to be an adventurous person, willing to try (almost) anything once. I believe that life is just too short to miss out on the endless new experiences that exist just outside of our front door. With that being said, I do have my limits. I have always been absolutely terrified of heights.
Think about the fastest you’ve ever driven your car. For most people, myself included, the fastest they’ve topped out at is 100 MPH. But even then, did you really go 100 MPH??? Did you really see the street signs whizzing past your window? Did you really feel like you had control of your vehicle? Maybe you did, I’ll have to take your word for it.

If you asked me two weeks ago what I knew about roller derby I couldn’t say much beyond the fact that they wear roller skates and Drew Barrymore starred in a movie about it a while back. Oh, and I saw the Kansas City Roller Warriors a few years ago, but my seats were far back and my adorable niece was being a bit distracting. The combination of the two made it hard to pay attention. However, when I heard the Kansas City Roller Warriors were moving from the Kansas City Convention Center to Memorial Hall in Kansas City, KS I was intrigued.
