Take me out to the ball game...
This weekend we celebrated my Birthday (yes, that's an intentional Big B, and for good reason - write if you'd like to know more) by traveling down to Los Angeles for a variety of fun. We took in a FANTASTIC performance by the Masters of Harmony, the international champion barberbshop chorus, along with University of Michigan Mens' Glee Club (fabulous in their own right). We enjoyed an evening stroll through downtown Burbank (who knew?) and a dip in the hotel pool before heading off for...drum roll...the girls' first professional baseball game: Dodgers v. Cubs at Dodger Stadium.
Mr. B has been introducing the girls to the technicalities of the game, and I think that paid off, though V was still a bit confused about which side of the field belonged to which team. (I think she understand soccer and football just fine.) It was quite toasty in our first-baseline seat, even with a 5 p.m. game start time. The crowd got much more active, interested and rowdy as the sun set.As you can see, E brought along her own entertainment for those slow times baseball provides. Yep, a baseball, peanuts, Cracker Jacks and a good book.V particularly enjoyed the cheering, the clapping and singing "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" during the 7th-inning stretch. :)
