Before the game we went to brunch at The Gourmet Shop in Five Points. After we ate we went on a little walk so Fischer could see the fountain. Unfortunately, during this walk, the kids got to experience another first in their lives - they saw someone getting arrested. Luckily nothing violent was going on, but it sure opened up a whole new area of questions from the kids. We were able to divert their attention pretty quickly though and move on to another topic. :)
Back to baseball..The team got a new stadium last year, so it was fun getting to see that too. It is such a great stadium - nicer than some minor league ones I've seen!
We weren't sure how long the kids would last during the game, but they made it through 6 innings! 4 innings spent in our seats, and 2 walking around and exploring. It was a great time and I'm hoping we can get back to another game this season.
At one point, Addison asked me when they players were going to run out of the tunnel. That's what our football team does, so she just had her sports mixed up. :) She also enjoyed going through the porgram and finding each player that was up at bat. One player's last name is Pankake and she got a huge kick out of that.
Fischer was excited to eat a slice of pizza during the game. Addison had talked about getting a soft pretzel for days but once it was time to make her final decision, she chose popcorn. Figures. :) Once the snacks ran out is when they started to get a little restless.
Later that afternoon, Jim came over with his tractor and put the finishing touches on our garden so that we could plant some things. That day we planted corn, carrots, and cucumbers. A few days later we planted onions, potatoes, tomatoes, herbs, and peppers.
It was a busy but fun day!
