a condensed version of my weekend // take me out to the ball game
I love baseball. Go ahead and knock it, I don't care. I grew up going to baseball games with my dad and brothers, and those games and that time with family is time that I will always remember and cherish. So, around this time of year I get the baseball itch, spring is in the air, which means spring training is too. And what better to do for spring/spring training than go to a baseball game!? Hazel went to her first baseball game this weekend. I was leery at first, since the game didn't start till 710 -which is usually the time we start her night time routine, but it worked out.
We brought lots of snacks, and sat in the outfield lawn so that she could walk around and explore the edges of the blanket. She did so great -it didn't hurt that two of her favorite people were there either. Hazel absolutely looooves my SIL -and I don't blame her.
I can't say we paid much attention to the game. I was mostly distracted by Hazel and it's just not the same when you can't really see what's going on because you have bad eyesight. Maybe I should have brought my glasses? -also, that's kind of become my mantra... shoot! I should have brought my glasses!
This weekend Hazel also experienced what it's like to eat peanut butter straight from the container. She might be addicted to peanut butter because each time I took away the container she signed and said "mooor". I think that if she could eat it all day she would.
The evenings this weekend were really nice -the days not so much, I guess when Punxsutawney Phill predicted no more winter he wasn't lying... Sunday night we played outside, blew bubbles -Hazel has a fit if you don't give her the bubble blower, it's kind of a problem. We played in the nice cool grass and Hazel was practically in heaven -she has always been our nature girl.
Also, let's me just say these last two pictures were taken with Brand's phone... why does he get the better phone with the better camera?! (;
