Take Me Out To The Ball Game!

Monster Man got free tickets to see the Atlanta Braves as a reward for being on the honor roll at school.  We went to today's game versus the New York Mets.  While the Braves ended up losing 3 -2, we still had a great time.

When we were getting ready for the game, all the kids could talk about was seeing Chipper Jones.  They were disappointed to find out that he was not on today's line-up.  However, they got a pleasant surprise to find out that he was brought in to pinch hit for another player.

Believe it or not, Little Man actually had a time when he got bored during the game.  Thankfully I thought to bring along his LeapFrog Didj.

Georgia Boy wasn't cooperating during the Tomahawk Chop, so Angel Baby grabbed his arm and made him chop!

A funny little story about the ride to the park:  We stopped for lunch on the way to the ballgame.  While we were waiting in the drive-thru line, the kids were getting especially loud.  I told the kids we were playing the quiet game.  The first person to make any noise was going to get their food last.  The game worked well for about 45 seconds, when Little Man suddenly announced "I get my food last! Yea!"  Seems he would rather get fed last than stay quiet... And, of course, the quiet was completely gone at this point because we all busted out laughing!

  1. Sounds like you'll had a great time Allie, and good on the Little Man for spoiling mom's game in such a way that he got a car full of laughter. So, did he actually get his food last?
