Today was a super fun day! This morning we had the chance to attend a re-creation of a baseball game from the 1860s, complete with uniforms and nicknames. We all cheered "Huzzah!" when the batter hit a home run and enjoyed comparing how they played the game then to how they play it now (it's pretty different!). It was a blast and there were all ages there enjoying it together. One of my favorites was an older gentleman sitting nearby with a shirt that said, "I'm not old, I'm vintage." Love it. (Here's a local recap of the event, and here are the newspaper's photos.]
After the "vintage" game, we headed on down to the Baylor Ballpark for their Community Tailgate, which involved games, inflatables, face-painting (LittleBear declined), free hot dogs/chips/Blue Bell and a cow milking demonstration during lunch (yes, really). Lots of fun was had, especially by LittleBear!
Taking his turn swinging a bat
Tossing the bean bags...he's way better than Mommy!
I think his favorite was jumping around in the inflatable dragon.
Today was LadyBear's first experience with baseball and I think she enjoyed it. Mostly, she enjoyed time with her Daddy...these two are quite the pair:
watching the game with Daddy...
Laughing up a storm...
Lovin' her Daddy kisses!!!
