Take me out to the ballgame...

We had a great time on Saturday taking the girlies to their first baseball game. We went to the AA Minor League Richmond Flying Squirrels. A friend's husband had $1 tickets available through his company for the general admission seats. Parking was only $3, so $7 for admission for the 4 of us to the game!!!

We had great seats on the first base side and three foul balls came withing 10 feet of us. There was so much fun stuff to see in between the innings. It was also fun to watch the girls get excited cheering "Go Nuts" and attempting to follow the game.

YMCA time!

I grew up on the baseball diamond, my dad was a HS varsity coach for 30+ years and he also took me and my brother to minor and major league stadiums up and down the east coast. It was hard not to laugh at a lot of the girl's comments about the game. Like when I explained to Teagan before the game started about the foul line and yellow foul pole and that a ball hit over all the billboard ads would be a home run. She looked at me very seriously and said, "Oh, so a home run is a very bad thing because then their ball is all gone and they can't play anymore."

We found our friend's in the stands and sat together. Their girls are the same ages and they all had a blast together. They danced and sang and cheered and got to run the bases at the end of the night.

There will be two more $1 nights and we can't wait to go again!
