    I'm excited about the upcoming KC Chiefs football season and with good reason! The Chiefs have a star-studded lineup, and the anticipation is building for another thrilling season of NFL action.

    Having Patrick Mahomes as our quarterback is undoubtedly a game-changer. His skill, talent, and ability to make incredible plays have made him a fan favorite and a true leader on the field. And let's not forget about the other standout players like Travis Kelce, who is a force to be reckoned with and a top-tier tight end.

    Isiah Pacheco, Creed Humphry, and McKinnon add even more depth and strength to the offensive line, which is crucial for a successful football season. A solid offensive line can make all the difference in creating scoring opportunities and protecting your star players.

    The excitement and energy surrounding the Chiefs are contagious, and it's clear that we're ready to cheer on your team with enthusiasm. As the season approaches, fans like you and I are counting down the days to see these incredible athletes again in action. Get ready for some heart-pounding moments, electrifying plays, and the camaraderie of being part of the Chiefs Kingdom. Here's to a fantastic season of KC Chiefs football!

    I have lived in Kansas City for 20+ years and cannot believe that I just tried Chez Elle downtown. I met friends there to celebrate a birthday and we had a fabulous time. There are all kinds of crepes from sweet and savory, pastries, soups, and salads to vegan options. I had the Fromage and it was stuffed with bacon, brie (my favorite), and pesto topped with crème fraiche. We all ordered different choices but I truly think you cannot go wrong. Give it a try soon!!!

    It's probably been reviewed hundreds of times but we love the Kansas City Zoo! We have been taking the kids there since they were babies. And now we can let the older ones take off and explore on their own. And still, the first thing they hit every time is the carousel.

    I am so excited about the new aquarium being built at the center of the zoo! Even though there's construction happening, they still have everything accessible and easy to get to. We renewed our annual pass, less expensive if you live in Jackson County, for about $167 for the year through next May. For a family of six, it costs at least that for a day pass when you include the carousel, sky-tram, etc. There are food and snack areas all around. They are on the expensive side for what you get, but you can always bring lunch in with you. Overall, we have always loved the KC Zoo. I think even after the kids grow up and leave, my wife and I will still be hitting that carousel every now and then!

    I included the YouTube Live Penguin link below.
