I kinda forgot to blog about our baseball adventure. It was an adventure because :
1. we don’t really watch much baseball or consider ourselves baseball fans
2. it was Will’s first sporting event
3. it was right in the middle of naptime
We went to see the Gwinnett Braves. They are a AA or AAA team, I think. I have no idea. I also have no idea who they played. I don’t even know if they wore red or blue. Like I said…not really into baseball.
But gosh darn it, it was on the summer list therefore it must be done.
With the help of a coupon it was only $6 for the family to get in and sit on the lawn.
We spread out the blanket, the snacks, the toys, and the fourteen bags of other baby paraphenalia that we toted into the park.
Instead of watching the game, Will played with the phone – he loves to talk to his imaginary coworkers. He puts the phone up to his ear and says Hey…but it sounds more like Eeh. Yes, I have a Canadian toddler.
We pulled out all the stops trying to keep him on the blanket including the infamous bum jiggle.
Eventually the Will power (pun intended) won over…and the little man ran wild.
He would stop and clap everytime the crowd cheered. It was made me smile.
Also this little guy made me smile. You remember Ethan?
We actually hit up the game with Ethan’s parents (and our friends), the Andersons.
Basically I could eat this guy up with a spoon.
And no, Ethan didn’t put the green wiggly ball down the entire time.
His blond hair kills me. I hope I have a baby one day that has blond hair. Oh let’s be honest…I’ll settle for a baby with any color hair…or no hair….I’d settle for anything right now. LORD I WANT A BABY!
Again Will got restless.
The bleachers kept him occupied for like two seconds.
The gift shop was a good diversion…
his hands were into everything…basically the ball area was not our friend. It was like a hailstorm of shrapnel…
Practicing the tomahawk chop….
Like the rest of my every days, Will had his breaking point. This particular day, we broke out the Dippin’ Dots.
He LOVED it. Will signing “more”. Guess he has his father’s sweet tooth…
Speaking of the daddy – I rarely get a photo of Jeremy. A real photo. One with a real smile. And make that a big smile. And those eye wrinkles. and the everything.
And I also rarely get a photo of Will cuddling. This one is getting printed and hung in the house for sure.
So that was the last thing we did on our summer list. Too bad summer ended so early….I was just getting started! Maybe I’ll just scootch some of the summer stuff to our fall list…that’s not cheating because I make up the rules 🙂
How did you guys do? Did you get everything done you wanted? I know I didn’t. Heaven’s knows I would never leave DONUTS unattended to intentionally.
