Take Me Out To The Ballgame!

Sharing is caring!

Over Memorial Day weekend we took Jonah to his first "official" ballgame! We're lucky to have a Minor League team in Chattanooga, which is great for summer fun! We chose a night that would have fireworks after the game for an extra special treat. I'll admit, we weren't sure how he'd do with the fireworks. In the past he's been ok, but you never know when loud noises might overwhelm a preschooler. Jonah started to cover his ears, but quickly changed to clapping and cheering with all of his might... Pure joy.

Truth be told, the group sitting in front of us was even more entertaining than the ballgame. Can you picture a large group of teenage girls from Poland at a baseball game in Tennessee? They were hilarious! We couldn't understand a word they were saying, but they were typical teenage girls...going in groups to the bathroom/concession stand, taking pictures of innocent bystanders and making fun of them in their language, primping, and boisterous laughter all around. It was a night to remember!

Note to self: It's too stinkin' hot to go to a ballgame when you're 26 weeks pregnant and the temperature reaches 96 degrees. Also, sitting on a bleacher seat is not a good idea. Ice cream in a "hat bowl" will help make up for it...even if you have to share it with a 3 year old. 🙂

What a nice family memory! Every kid should go to a game every once in awhile.
