Take Me Out To The Ball Game

25 Jun

Lucas had the most perfect first trip to the ball game last weekend…. aside from the game at least, that part was awful.

Ben was a bit under the weather so Uncle Brad and Mason tagged along for the experience, while our little guy and Gigi stayed home.

Lucas informed us that he’d be having a dozen treats while we were there, and had high expectations for interacting with the Philly Phanatic. I’m pleased to report that at least part of those goals came true.

The seats were… insane.

We were pretty much on the field.  Tim was our ball vigilante since there was a good chance of foul balls beaming towards our heads.

Best of all, guess who got game balls.
