Joshua watched the game pretty intently. It is hard to come between him and baseball. One of our favorite moments was when all of the Braves fans around us where cheering, "Go Braves", and he sat there in our laps quietly cheering, "Go Cardinals!" Abby Kate was all about the cheering and the food. Jackson loved cheering and clapping during the game. He especially loved the "Everybody Clap Your Hands" song and pointing out the ball when it came flying up into the sky.
We all had such a great time together. I think that Jason and I went to our first baseball game together in 1997. It is so amazing to see how our lives have changed over the years. I am definitely cherishing these times and the memories that are made along the way.
Joshua and Abby Kate both got a ball from the Cardinals players Tuesday night. Ryan Ludwick hit Joshua's ball and Joel Pineiro threw it up into the stands for him to keep. Skip Schumaker hit Abby Kate's ball and Ryan Franklin tossed her the ball to keep. I don't think that we have ever been to a MLB game where Joshua has not gotten a ball!
This moment totally cracked me up. While Jason, Joshua and Abby Kate were watching the players during BP, Jackson and I walked around. Jackson was very fascinated by this mascot, but when the mascot got down on his level, Jackson took off running for me.
