Rascals Game

Friday night we went with a group of friends to the River City Rascals game.  We have only been once before (last year) which is pretty pathetic given our proximity to the ballpark.  We happened to get free tickets through Melissa's dad's connections (thanks Ken!); though the ticket price is very reasonable at $6 or so.  Jack was really looking forward to the game and paid attention to at least 3 pitches the whole night. :)  This is definitely a family-friendly atmosphere, so our group spent a lot of time on the playground.

One of the kids got a snow cone, so of course we had to get them for the rest of the kids.  Turns out Charlie LOVES snow cones.  The child did not leave this picnic bench for at least 30 minutes.  Then he kept returning throughout the night for a few more melted bites.  Funny.

Jack had fun running around with all his buddies.

At the end we were excited to learn that the kids got to run the bases.  I took Jack and Hayden initially and they rocked it.  I told them to stick together and they mostly did.  My photography is sub-par (this is why Cyndi and I need to take our photography class!) so they are pretty blurry in most pictures, but you get the idea.  Jack thought he was hot stuff.

We rushed down there so quickly that I didn't realize Charlie wanted a turn too.  I turned around when Jack and Hayden were finished and found Charlie and Addi starting their run.  Too cute!!  Charlie too thought he was a big shot running the bases (at 9:45pm, no less...well past bedtime).

The blur on the base is Addi

Fun night!  It was pretty toasty outside, but we all had fun, so it was worth it!
