A Day at the Ballpark

We took Big D and Miss M to Busch Stadium on Sunday for the Founders Day activities. (Of course, Mr. H tagged along.) The tickets were given to my husband at work. Admission included free concession items, clubhouse and dugout tours, discounted retail items, and fun for the kids at the Family Pavilion. The team was playing in Chicago that day, but we got to watch the game on the JumboTron.

We took a walk on the warning track around the whole field. The kids took turns slamming themselves into the outfield wall to see what it really feels like to steal a home run from the opposing team.

They also got to sit in the Cardinals dugout. It was so exciting to sit in the same place the team sits when we see them on TV!

We ate our (free) hot dogs and nachos in the front sections of the stadium, where the seats are nice and padded. We told the kids not to get used to that.

They had an area with an inflatable slide, a bouncer and an obstacle course. They also had batting cages and a place to throw a ball to see how fast you can pitch. Hubby didn’t do too badly – 65 mph.

It was a gorgeous day to spend at the ballpark.

And, as you can tell by the smiles, we had a great time.
