This past weekend Grouchy Husband and I took the girls to their first baseball game. My sister-in-law and brother-in-law coordinated the outing with my sister-in-law’s sister-in-law’s family (haha…make sense!). Grouchy Husband and I aren’t big sports fans and would not have gone on our own so it was nice to share this experience with family. The girls were really excited because they didn’t know what to expect. We took a short train ride to the stadium. The girls love the train so that made the experience even more exciting.
Our tickets included a BBQ lunch. Of course, both girls insisted on sitting next to my sister-in-law.
Ice cream was the highlight of the BBQ.
At the very very few sporting events I’ve been at, I’ve always wanted a foam finger. All of the kids got one. I was a little envious but now I can borrow theirs. Baby looked so funny with the huge foam finger on her hand!
After the BBQ lunch, we watched the game. I was told we were sitting in a prime location for home runs. My brother-in-law (to the right of me) grew up playing baseball and was so excited to catch a ball. I saw how hard they hit the ball and felt bad sitting next to him hoping a ball didn’t come near me.
Oh, did I mention we were going to a Yankee game? Could you tell from all of the blue and white, pinstripes, etc in the crowd?
My sister-in-law is 7 months pregnant and looks amazing! I don’t remember being pregnant but I think God does that on purpose so you’ll do it again.
My sister and brother-in-law chose this game to attend because it was one of Derek Jeter’s, one of the best players on the Yankees, last games before he goes into retirement. You could tell the crowd was there to support and celebrate him. It was awesome.
The girls had fun at the game. They were in great company, ate a lot of snacks, and saw the crowd go wild when the players hit home runs.
We left after the 7th inning and had some time before the train came so we went to the playground. Do you see the watch dog in the picture? While I appreciate him protecting the kids, I had to tell Grouchy Husband to move out of the picture if he wasn’t going to smile.
Thankfully, he decided to smile…
Family time is one of my favorite times,
