Take me out to the ball game...

On Labor Day, we took the kids to the Diamondbacks Baseball game! We had free tickets for the kids thanks to the library's summer reading program, and we thought it would be a fun time.
It was! It was a pretty exciting game. At one point, the D-backs were down 6 to 3, but they came back to win 8 to 6!
We sat in the truly "cheep seats" (only $6!), but I thought we still had a pretty good view of the game.
The kids did get a little restless, so we decided to leave during the 7th inning stretch.

They both fell fast asleep on the way home!

Randy Johnson was pitching, but wasn't at his best.

Happy Kids

Popcorn stuck in her teeth - eeww!

The whole family!

I would totally do this again! It was a really fun time for all of us. And CHEEP! With tickets, parking AND a hot dog and popcorn (we ate lunch before we went, but Brandon HAD to have a baseball hot dog!), we spent less than $25. Not bad for wholesome family entertainment!

Woo Hoo fun time Layney! I remember when you guys took us to a Diamondbacks game when we came to visit. I think that is STILL the one and only time I've been to a professional sporting event!

We are headed to the game next week with our free summer reading tickets. We will see just how loud Patrick screams this year. I think he is destined to be the ump!
