First Cardinals Game

Who says dreams don't come true?

One of mine became a reality on July 2, 2010. I took my very own son to a St. Louis Cardinals baseball game. He won't remember it, but I always will. It will be great to share games in the future when he can actually talk baseball with his old man. Until then I am more than happy to just share the game I love with Braden whether it means chasing him around the stadium or actually sitting in the seats.

Here is a picture story of our family trip to the ballgame.

Braden is dressed and ready.

On the way to the park we saw the parachuters.

At the stadium we got a souvenir giveaway.

Then we found our seats and took a family photo.

After that we had to get a hot dog. It's un-American to not eat a hot dog at the ballgame.

With full bellies it was time to catch a little bit of the game.

We saw Daddy's Favorite Albert Pujols...

...and Mommy's favorite Yadier Molina seen here catching in this great action shot taken by Arica. I think I should send this in to Sports Illustrated or something.

Then Braden had a Coke.

He likes Coke.

Then Braden watched some more of the game with his beloved Coke.

As the night was winding down we took a lot of pictures to commemorate the occasion. Here is one.

Unfortunately the game ended and we had to go home. But We'll be back.

Looks like you guys had a great time! I'm impressed that he wears a hat...I can't get Ethan to leave his on long enough for me to snap a picture.

Brandy said...

G won't wear a hat either. great pictures that Arica took. Love the last one. And glad to see little man is doing good.

Manic Mommy said...

LOVE that last one! I'm glad you had such a good time. And you're right; it's totally un-American to not eat a hot dog at a baseball game.

Great photos! Love all the red gear!

Looking forward to taking my little boy (almost 5mo now) to his first game.

Sweet, that is awesome. I took my son to his first game (AAA, however) a few weeks ago, it was a lot of fun.

Great post! Just went to a Twins game with my oldest daughter-what a great bonding experience. The first of many.

That's good stuff right there. I've been planning on taking my daughter to a minor league game here, but haven't had the chance too.

I think she'll enjoy the mid inning fun as well.

Looks like you had a wonderful time. Your son is a cutie. Lovely family. Enjoy him. They grow up so quickly.
