 oh boy did nick ever roll his eyes when i requested after a trip to cabbalas we stop by the grinters farm for a picture op.  he appeased me with one selfie photo
 last year i made the trek on my own and the flowers were near the end of their prime. this time i made sure to swing by early in their bloom.
nick can not believe the fuss people in and around kansas city make about these fields.  um hello most of us are city folks and didn't grow up in the country like he did.

family time

 with the holiday weekend upon us and the football game complete, we spent the rest of holiday with family down at the lake.
 september is a busy birthday weekend for the neff family so a get together was in order.
 logan was all boy and in go mode
 a full family boat ride was just what aunt donna had asked for.
hope everyone else enjoyed their labor day weekend.


lake bound and this goofball was just a bit excited for the road trip.

purple and white

football season is back. today is the first home game of the season and it was a stripe the stadium with each section asked to wear either purple or white.

it is so good to be back in manhattan and seeing so many of our favorites, include the ever cute clark family.
 we stopped by to see some of the neighbors.  it was nice and warm out but we are all excited about cheering on our team.
 i love that so many of our neighbors are also k-staters and we get to tailgate with many of them.
the stadium looked great striped purple and white.

 not sure how i did it but i left my camera on a camera stick in the seats at the game last night.  i seriously thought no problem someone will turn it in and we are headed back to the k the very next night.

janel and ryan joined us for tonights outing.  and my first stop once we got in the stadium was to guest services...only to learn that no camera was turned it.  i stopped by our seats from yesterday and the same usher was present and he didn't see the camera either. darn it!

tonights game was long!  janel and i spent a good chunk of first and second inning standing out by the fountains.
what a crazy crew tonight.
