Following in the footsteps of vacation past

Last night, we took the kidlins to see the Minor League baseball team in our state. My employer was given free tickets, and we were lucky recipients of 4. It was a good night. The weather was beautiful...not too hot or muggy, the game moved at a good pace, and we ate dinner before we got there. (Have you seen the prices at these places? Geez!) The monster was much better behaved this year, as he actually watched some of the game this time. They had an amusing gentleman dressed up as a nerdy umpire do little skits between each inning. The players and managers even got involved with them, dancing with him. My favorite was the manager that did Dueling Signals with him, to the tune of Dueling Banjos. It was really cute. Our team won 5-2, with the winning three runs coming in the bottom of the 8th inning. I wasn't sure why, but the group has a person dressed as celery come out and run around home plate whenever they score. I had to google why celery, and it's simply a matter of the costume being left in their store room. The kids get a kick out of it though. After the game, FIREWORKS! They were really good, and were well enjoyed. Don't worry, we did buy a pretzel, 2 drinks and some of those nasty dippin dots in baseball caps for the kids.

Tomorrow we are going to Sesame Place. I'll have lots to post about on Tuesday I'm sure.
