TJ's 1st Brave's Game
For Father's Day, we got Thomas Brave's Tickets. TJ has never been to a game and we thought we would test out his attention span and buy him a cheap $6 ticket to come along! Thomas wanted to get to the stadium early, so we walked up just as the gates were opening (2 1/2 hours prior to game time)! So, we walked around for a while then TJ saw the Cartoon Network kids area...in there we went! He played and played with the stupidest games! Finally we got him outta there and went up to let him run the bases on top of the stadium. Come game time he was worn out, and in the 3rd inning said "Mommy, I'm ready to go home!" But, he was a good little sport and stuck it out! He was really intrigued by the vendors that walked up and down the aisles, yelling about whatever item they were trying to sell. One time the cotton candy man passed us as TJ was trying to get his attention. TJ got upset and said "I want some of that and he didn't stop!" We then had to explain that you can't just get the food, that you have to pay for it. So, the next time the cotton candy man was coming up our aisle, he yelled "Hey, I want some of that...we have money!" I guess at least he didn't say that to the beer guy, but he did tell him "I don't need any of those redult (adult) drinks." After the game, they had Friday Night Fireworks...which were GREAT! The Brave's game is another first in the books along with the first time he stayed up until 1:00 a.m.!!!
