I get emails from some military family resource that often has discounts or events going on in the area. I found out that Saturday was a half off night at the Bees game and decided we should go. Mom and Dad were planning to come up that day and I was excited to do it with them because they used to take us as kids!
We got to the stadium and it was the traditional baseball atmosphere, with the crowds and the smells and the fun. We were all surprised with Terran's interest and good behavior the whole game. He enjoyed watching the actual players quite a bit. We danced together during the music clips, with Poppy going gangster with a sideways hat, making Zach laugh so hard. After a whole bag of cotton candy, Terran got a little crazy dancing, shaking his hair tossing his hat, but laughing the whole time. He would yell "YES!" to a silent stadium when our team would strike out and got into clapping pretty good a few times too!
Grammy brought cars to extend Terran's interest, and he spent some fun time on their laps. I was prepared to leave early since it would get way past Terran's bedtime, but he claimed he wanted to see the fireworks at the end so we made it work. Turns out, after about five seconds he decided he didn't like the noise of the fireworks so we hid in the bathroom until it was over. I was sad to miss the show but I knew little T-Dub was not enjoying it!
Zach and I had never been to a baseball game together and I was pleasantly surprised to find out how much enjoyed going. Not only for the atmosphere but for the actual game.
Nights like this make me supremely happy with life!
