Take Me Out to the Ball Game

Last Saturday night we met up with JP and Kai and went to a Diamondbacks game! It was June's first baseball game and I tried to teach her the words to "Take Me Out to the Ball Game" before the 7th inning stretch.

We got the cheap-o tickets up in the Nosebleed Section because apparently baseball tickets are really expensive? Seriously, it was going to cost us like $60 a ticket to sit in the lower bowl.

What we saved in seat cost we made up for in libations.... we ate hot dogs and brats and popcorn, corndogs and chips con queso. And beer.

Corndog cheers!

There was a bit of an incident where we waited in line to get into the KidZone to play on the little playground. Right as June was allowed in, she immediately sat down and started taking her shoes off, but an employee came over and told us she was too little. I tell you, June's little disappointed face of realizing she shouldn't take her shoes off, that she couldn't play...I almost started crying myself.

Luckily all's well that ends with a toddler INSISTING you take her picture next to the giant pig.

We went back to our seats with new snacks to watch (most of) the rest of the game. Kai knew exactly when to clap and when to boo, which June mimicked immediately. We had some opposing team fans behind us, so June would sometimes clap along with them as well.

Our little band of baseballers had such a good time!
