"Take Me Out to the Ballgame" - St. Louis Cardinals

Last night we attended our first baseball game of 2009. Even though the home team lost - we had a fun time.

We had great seats courtesy of my husband's employer.

We anticipated being cold so we brought plenty of warm clothes.

We anticipated being hungry so we brought lots of snacks...good way to avoid the temptation of ballpark food prices. When I made a trip to the bathroom with the kids - they were sorely tempted by the giant cinnamon and sugar pretzels - but the girl wisely decided to scram before her pocketbook became a little lighter...

As we were leaving the stadium, tired and with full stomachs, the boy remarked "I have a super duper MUZZLE-LOADING stomachache!" Yes guns influence all aspects of his life. Good thing he didn't have a giant cinnamon and sugar pretzel along with all the M&Ms, Root Beer, Peanuts and "Snack Mix".

This was our first time parking downtown for the game - usually we take the MetroLink. Wasn't too sure if we'd have a hard time getting out of the parking garage - but it all went fast and smooth and only cost $5 to park.

We got home pretty late (we left before the game was over - I think it was the 8th inning and Cardinals were down by about 6 runs...) - both kids fell asleep in the car.
