This weekend, Chris and I headed up to Kansas City to watch the KC Chiefs playing in their first playoff game in 7 years! Ledger stayed home with Oma and Dooda, so we even had a chance to have an adults-only "date night" with the Perkins' on Saturday night. We went to see "The King's Speech" at the cinema suites in Olathe -- this specialized theater where you sit in individual recliners and they serve you dinner during the movie. The food was OK, the movie was good, but the experience was a lot of fun.
On the morning of "game day" we woke up early to find a light dusting of snow on the ground. Temperature at kick-off was predicted to be 20 degrees Fahrenheit, so we packed up as many layers as possible to be prepared for the freezing cold weather.

|Sidetracked again -- this time by the "pope".|

The rest of the game was not so great. We continued to freeze... and so did the Chiefs offense. The Ravens rolled right over the Chiefs with a final score of 30-7.

Overall, we had an awesome weekend. We missed Ledger, but it was nice to have a Mommy+Daddy date.
