It's One, Two, ......

"Three strikes your out at the old ballgame:........

Last night, Jeff, Mom, Randy, Loretta, Krystal, Sofie and I went to a Grizzlies baseball game. The Grizzlies are part of the Frontier League and we have never been disappointed with a game.

We had seats at a picnic table along the first base line which meant that it became foul territory when there was a right handed batter. We had mom's wheelchair in prime viewing area and ,as a precaution, put the baseball glove on her hand in case of foul balls :>)

She had such a good time. While the rest of us were talking and eating she was focused on the game. Occassionaly she would ask "what just happened?" and one of us would try to figure out the play since we weren't really paying as much attention. It was great to get her out of the house and see her enjoying herself.

Sofie had a good time as well and was SO good. She lasted until about the eighth inning before she started fighting sleep. Randy would walk her up and down the bleacher steps or one of us would push her around in her stroller. That girl loves to be on the move!!!!

The weather was beautiful, the crowd was great, the food was awesome (you can't beat a Baseball's Best Hot Dog with sauerkraut, bacon and cheddar cheese) and the Grizzlies won. We can't wait to do it again!!!!
