Take Me Out to the Ballgame!

Our family returned a little while ago from the Colorado Springs Sky Sox game. We had so much fun!

John's employer sponsored an employee night at the ballpark and gave each employee 10 free tickets, a parking pass, and $10 in concession vouchers. How cool is that? I am all about free stuff.

Our seats were awesome...they were box seats and not the bleachers, and because we had extra tickets, Will invited his best bud, and we invited some friends from church.

I love baseball games, but I love to socialize even more, so I ended up chatting most of the time, and it was great.

One of the highlights for the kids (other than the hot dogs, soda, popcorn, and the cotton candy that their father bought for them at 9:30pm and has them on a nice little sugar high at this late hour) was seeing themselves on the jumbo-tron not once but TWO times! Very cool. I tried really hard to get a picture of them on the screen, but I wasn't fast enough! Oh well.

The weather was perfect...breezy and cool (notice the kids are wearing jackets!) and it was just a perfect Colorado night. I certainly hope they make this an annual event because we all had such a terrific time!

Well, I have sinned. I'm jealous and I covet the good time you had tonight. :-)

Love and hugs,

Fun night! I also end up chatting at sporting events rather than watching. Your kids are so cute.
