Their 1st & Last

Guess who finally got to see their favorite baseball team LIVE at Yankee Stadium?

Guess who got their very own Yankee apparel at their very first Yankee game? (No...I'm not bitter...I've just wanted a Yankee sweatshirt just like this for 10+ years but have never gotten one)

Guess who got to see their VERY FAVORITE pitcher (Andy Pettite) in action?

Guess who ate their way through the game?

Guess who was very sticky from kids sitting on her lap the whole game?

Friday night, Shane & I took Zoe & Ty to their first Major League Baseball Game.  It was also their first trip to Yankee Stadium.  They were very excited and had been talking about the game all week.  The weather postponed the game, but didn't stop it!  It actually turned out to be a nice night for a game.  Just as predicted, Ty sat and watched the game intently, while Zoe lasted a half inning and then squirmed until we left after the 5th (Yanks down 3-0). What I hadn't considered when choosing the game was that Z & T would have just wrapped up 2 full weeks of camp and would therefore, be exhausted.  Neither of the kids lasted the whole way home (Ty didn't even make it to the George Washington Bridge.)

Best Ty quotes of the night (Zoe was too busy squirming and drawing to be quotable):
  • When Shane asked Ty if he thought Yankee Stadium would be bigger or smaller than "this", Ty responded, "DEFINITELY smaller."
  • Sometime after "last call", a not-so-sober man stood up a few rows ahead of us and screamed at the top of his lungs, "Let's go Andy!" To which Ty responded, "Now a Yankee fan!"
...and my personal favorite...
  • After the first few beer vendors came by, Ty said to Shane, "Dad, why's he saying, 'Growing a beard here'?" (That's Shane's favorite saying when Ty's taking a long time: I'm growing a beard over here!)

Isn't it fun to just take the big kids somewhere? I love just going with them and leaving the triplets at home. I realize how easy it would be if we had just the two and why people tend to stop having kids after that! But how fun would life be without our triplets? No fun at all. More relaxing, yes, but no fun.

I'm just now catching up with everyone - love the video especially of Eli eating - hilarious. So glad you've survived a year :)

Aim! Mike and I and the girls were AT THE SAME GAME! We were Behind home plate on the field level, just under the loge roof! What a hoot! I wish I knew, we couldv'e hooked up and passed some time during the rain delay! We lasted until the 8th inning...the kids packed their jammies and slept the three hours home... well, so did I, thank the LORD for Michael's ability to drive late at night. It was fun, none the less!
