This week I'm celebrating a Cracker Jack of a game!
What are you celebrating this week?
Last Saturday we went to the White Sox game. I've actually been to more White Sox games in my time than Cubs game but I consider myself a Cubs fan...I mean, kind of. Sports people are probably guffawing at me because I'm hardly a fan but I do consider the Cubs to be my baseball choice.
But last Saturday we went to the White Sox game. My husband got amazing tickets from a friend and we were able to invite friends to come with us. The kids had a blast and any MLB game is magical so it was a fun night.
They have great things for kids to do before and during the game. Little Bean and I ended up here during the game because he just couldn't sit still. He knew that he wanted to go back and get some extra batting practice. How adorable is he in this giant helmet?
Okay, here you can see how great our seats were. This is Peanut in the very front row, we were right behind 1st base. It was pretty incredible. And he got to drink pop so he was completely over the moon and on cloud nine at the same time.
It just so happened to be NIU night and they sponsored fireworks after the game. It's pretty amazing to see all the lights turned out in a giant stadium like that and amazing fireworks. They were set to music and it was fun to sing along. Here we are at the end of the night...most of us were tired but we were still smiling.
Okay, so I'm not really a White Sox fan and barely a baseball fan but I am a fan of family fun and today I'm celebrating the fun we had spending time together.
