Take Me Out to the Ball Game

Some friends offered us tickets to the Reds game tonight, so I was able to take Evan to a game for the first time. I wasn't sure how much fun he would have, but he had a blast. First, he got to have his friend ride in the car with him and they both loved that and were screaming and laughing the whole way down. Walking into the stadium, he was very interested in everything, and was even excited to ride up the huge escalator.

We got to our seats and he enjoyed checking everything out. He wasn't exactly following the game, but sort of interested in what was going on, especially after the Reds got a home run and there were fireworks. After an inning or two, it was time for peanuts. After that, bathroom break. Then popcorn, which was one of the highlights of the night for Evan.

We actually made it to the 7th inning stretch and we got to sing "Take Me Out to the Ball Game". He was practicing it with Erica earlier in the day, but I didn't think we'd last that long. After that, we stopped by the playground on the ground level for a few minutes before heading back to the car.

We had a lot of fun, and I can't wait for more of these great father/son activities in the future!!!

Home Run Reds!
