|Hip, Hip, Hooray for July 4th!|
At the game we enjoyed ALL YOU CAN EAT concessions- Wyatt & Ethan definitely took advantage of this opportunity. Wyatt loves his pizza :) Unfortunately, I was waiting to get my ice cream until later, when all of a sudden, I heard a cannon and the game was over! I was so worried about entertaining Wyatt and talking with people that I didn't realize it was over. I was disappointed in myself that I did not spoil myself with delicious ice cream of my choice. Oh well. The game was still fun.
First time watching a major league baseball game together. We enjoyed it. (Next in line, an NBA basketball love... our anniversary is coming up. Hint, hint)
Naturally, we took turns walking around with Wyatt and getting him treats since he didn't really understand what the little ants were doing on the field. It seems that at most sporting events, when there are parents & small children involved, the wife willingly offers to watch the younger ones so the husband can watch the game or teach his sons how to play etc. Unfortunately for Ethan, I was just as desirous to watch the game as he was so we had to thumb war over who would take Wyatt for a while. I love our relationship haha!
CHEESE! Me and my little buddy.
I thought this was a neat sight.
Ethan enjoys being spoiled and enjoys his food. He was loving this opportunity.
I don't know what motivates Ethan to do such things, but he turned to one of the workers and asked, "Is there any way I could go down there are just step on the field? I'm from Wyoming and I'm just a country boy who doesn't get out much. Would they let me?" The lady chuckled and said, "Ya, sure! If you want to spend the night behind bars."
All of us laughed hard but Ethan wasn't satisfied. He walked down to the field and talked to the police officers. When they saw him walking so close to the field, the police officers looked like they were ready to tackle if Eth would have walked on the field. Sure enough, minutes later, Ethan's down there talking with 3 police offers and I see him laughing and the officers shook his hand. He demanded that I at least get a picture of him down by the field. Oh, silly Effie.
A) You know me and how much I love black people :) I strategically sat down right in between them but they thought I was a crazy woman. I was whipping out motivational tattoos for Wyatt, glow sticks, stickers, coloring books, and even a balloon kit to make hats and animals for the kids hahaha! They were all staring at me and I have no clue what they were thinking. But hey, what can they expect from someone who is used to friendly Idaho people? AND, I'm from out of town, AND I don't really care what other people think of me, AND I even made the little black kid in the wife beater happy cuz I gave him a glow stick and made him a balloon hat. (The parents eased up after they realized I was just a nice person--a weird person for those parts.)
B) Look at Cleveland behind us. Isn't it purty?
