Take Me Out to the Ballgame!

Last Sunday, Jackson, Joe, and I spent a fun afternoon at the ballpark seeing the Potomac Nationals take on the Lynchburg Hillcats! We scored a great deal on tickets through Groupon. $6 for a ticket and hot dog! The Potomac Nationals are the minor league affiliate of the Washington Nationals. It was a perfect "first real ballgame" experience for Jackson. We have heard from many of our friends that going to a Washington Nationals game is way too expensive and too much "hype" for little kids. The minor league version was just right. Especially for a game that can be so sloooowwwww like baseball. We watched a few innings then took a walk around the stadium. There was a kids area set up with 4 bounce houses, and of course, Jackson wanted to check that out. So he bounced a bit then we found some good seats higher up behind home plate. We made it past the seventh inning stretch before we decided to head home. It was a really fun, relaxing afternoon and we are looking forward to more games. If you ask Jackson about the game he will tell you all about the two guys who broke their bats! Funny what leaves a lasting impression in their minds!

Seventh Inning Stretch!

Found a stick fishing pole on the way to the car.
He can't walk by a stick without picking it up!

Flower for mommy!
