First Professional Baseball Game

Last week, my family took Angry Kid to his first baseball game.  It was The Angels.  I was super bummed because I had to work that night and couldn’t go.  I put my camera in the backpack and asked Angry Husband to take some pictures of Angry Kid, the game, etc. I got several text messages from Angry Husband, that “he hates my camera, and it will not focus.” I’ve told Angry Husband several times, that my lens requires you to find a “hard line” to focus on if you are using automatic.  I think he took about ten photos in total.

Angry Kid, The Angels, and a Churro

Notice the churro firmly clutched in Angry Kid’s hand.  My mom told me a funny story about this churro.  She said that the vendor was going around selling these churros up and down the aisles at the stadium.  Angry Kid actually stood up and flagged the guy down.  Angry Kid waved at the guy and said, “hey you, over here, come here”.  This is so typical of Angry Kid as he is not shy at all.

Angry Kid lasted through most of the game. Angry Husband said that he got a little, “antsy” at the end.  But luckily, I had packed the iTouch in the backpack which had some games to entertain Angry Kid.  The next day, I asked Angry Kid if he liked the baseball game. He nodded at me. I guess that means yes.

I can’t wait to take him to more games, so that I can attend.  I think I know what our summer activity will be this year.  We waited till this year to expose Angry Kid to things like this, because he can get bored very easy. Plus, baseball games are not cheap.

OMG that picture with the foam finger is so cute! I'm glad he had a good time! I'm not sure if my kids would survive but they are up for a hockey game anytime!

Angry Kid sounds like a normal boy to me. Being the mother of 4 boys and 1 tomboy - and the grandma of 6 boys - I can surely relate. That is why grandpa and I bought tickets to the minor league games (Brooklyn Cyclones here) and somewhere around the 4th or 5th inning when there are ants in their pants...we can leave (after dropping a load of money on "food") but it is fun!

I took my son to his first baseball game last season and he didn't last long at all. I should have packed stuff though, just never thought of it!!!

So fun! Turtle just went to his first college ball game a few weeks ago and it was awesome. I can't wait to take him to a football game. He's going to have such a blast!

My brother took Grace and me to a Mariners game last year - a first for both of us girls. We had a blast! I took a ton of pictures...because Grace was only 7 months and will not remember one thing about it, including almost blowing through her diaper as we drove in to Seattle and me changing her on her Uncle's leather seats in the back of his new Lexus! Oh the memories we are making!

Sounds like Hubby with my Nikon. He still doesn't "get it." Love that AK went to his first real game. Those last three pics need to be up in his room. ASAP.
