My girls love to be outside and they love sports. We all know this has nothing to do with me and everything to do with their daddy. This past Saturday was the alumni baseball game at our Alma Mater. It's a fundraiser for the current varsity team, which my brother-in-law helps to coach. They worked so hard to pull it off and we had a fabulous time at the ballpark. Not to mention, it's just across the street and makes for an awful easy commute!
First up, we had to say hello to our daddy. He had just hit two out of the park in the Home Run Derby when we arrived. Sophie was pretty happy to talk with him through the fence.
I just knew she would be a disaster at the park and into everything. I was surprised that she actually sat still the entire day (with only a few mishaps) and was MUCH better than I expected.
Don't they look presh in the yellow jacket gear?
There were more than a few trips to the concession stand by these girls. Who could resist a lunch at the ballpark and unlimited Reese's Peanut Butter Cups?
Apparently, not even me! These chicken fingers were so good and I sacrificed other calories all day long to enjoy them. Thank goodness, I didn't even have to share.
We did actually manage watch our daddy play ball for at least a little while!
Our one major mishap for the day was this. Sophie was walking along the edge of the sidewalk and stepped off into the grass by accident. Unfortunately, she lost her balance and ended up in a mud puddle. Thankfully, she had on water sandals and after stripping off leggings and washing her feet, she was good to go!
Ella tried her best to get a snooze in, but this chair just wasn't comfy enough.
We did get some good snuggles from our Daddy in between games. Sophie refused to smile and this was the best I could do.
Sophie actually took a nap, even though it was hot and loud. As soon as Jo-Jo showed up, she piled into his arms and was out like a light. I'm pretty sure she slept for the better part of two hours out there. Boy did she feel better when she woke up to find her best buddy Carson there.
It was the perfect spring day to welcome baseball season and look forward to some pretty Saturdays outside. Wanna check out pictures from last years' game? You can click here! Don't you agree that he looked better with a shaved head than with his current mop top? I'm trying to convince him to cut it again, but he is determined to grow it out long!
