Arizona Diamondbacks 9, Los Angeles Dodgers 4,...

Thanks to AZ on the Rocks (a great indoor climbing place with the best summer/spring camp according to MB!) we got 3 tickets to the Diamondback game this past weekend.

Everyone was excited to get out and get in one last game, before we begin the countdown to FOOTBALL season. There are 2 adults in this house that are ready for some football.

5 and 3/4 (as MB tells it) is a great age for going to games. She is interested in learning about the sport. What base are they on? How fast does he pitch? what is the score? who is hitting? Lots of lots of questions…but she is learning and remembering the answers so it is all good.

Even more fun is the big screen and the cheers. She doesn’t miss a clapping opportunity and would laugh at me if I did. We got a big kick out of the kiss cam, though she didn’t want us to kiss if they got us on…”that would be embarrassing”. Ahh I thought I had a few more years before I started to embarrass her, guess not.

Of course a trip to the ballpark wasn’t complete without a treat. Surprisingly, she skipped ice cream this time for shaved ice and after about 10min of re-arranging herself in her seat she got the perfect position for eating shaved ice and TB an I were blessed with 20min of no chatter….at least not from our little dugout.

Winners all around…and the Diamondbacks too! The show wasn’t over yet…the ride home we got to see another amazing monsoon lightening storm…they just keep getting better.

Mark and I have taken the girls to exactly two baseball games. In the middle of the second game? My older daughter turned to us and asked, “Why are we here? This is like the most boring activity in the entire world.”

And her younger sister nodded in agreement.

The only thing they liked?

The expensive ballpark snacks.

I don’t see much baseball in our future.

Your day, however?

Sounds way fun!

Well snacking is a big part of the game. I think we learned a good trick this time and ate at In-n-Out right before the game. Full bellies made for less snacks!

I swear my daughter is a split personality…she is a girlie girl 80% of the time, but then 20% she is out there loving sports in a baseball cap!

So far the mix is working well for me!
