The Brewer Game



I knew going in that the baseball game may pose a challenge with Miss Peanut Butter, but against my better judgment, we took her and didn't fork over money for another seat since she gets in free being under two. I don't know if having a seat would have matter, since she was all over the place, but the extra space might have. I let her run around on the concourse before the game started, hoping to get the running out of her system. I even tried to shop with her; she thought it was fun to throw souvenir balls at people, I figured we'd better get out while we still could. I found a flower for her and stood in line to checkout for eons. By the time we left the shop, I was a sweaty mess and so was PB. We headed to out seats and she was fine until The Boy came and sat down with his brat, then she wanted to eat. "Eat, Eat," she kept saying until I gave in. We went up and got a brat. She was fairly good from that point. She played with her flower and got passed between our laps for a few innings. I tried to get her to watch a little baseball, but since Blue wasn't playing she wasn't having it. It was extremely hot and humid in the park, almost like sitting in a sauna. I figured Peanut Butter needed a run around break and ice cream was in order. We mowed down that 4 dollar dish of ice cream like there was no tomorrow and got to do PB's new favorite thing, wash our hands in the sink. We went back to sit and J said after the 7th inning we'll take off. The Brew Crew was down 4 runs and it wasn't looking like they were going to start anything anytime soon, that is until we got to the car and turned the radio on. They loaded up the bases at one point, but hit into a double play, but then Fielder hit a homer and they were only down by one. It also started pouring at this point, so I was glad we had left; the happy, giggly little ride on Daddy's shoulders back to the car would have been a nightmare. But that was the last hurrah for the Brewers anyhow and they lost 4-3. All of the excitement some how did not put Peanut Butter to sleep instantly; she fought sleep watching Blue's Clues the hour or so drive home. I think it will be next season before we attempt to bring her to a game again, maybe by then a little more of her wiggles with have wiggled out of her.

The best thing they did up here was put a playground in inside the stadium. Mind you hubby and I had to take turns so neither of us really saw the game.

Yep, wait a few more months.

Very cute...My hubby is a Yankees fan and with the new stadium coming, we toyed with the idea to take EM to the old one this year but she has my taste when it comes to baseball, she doesn't like it so much. Besides everytime we drive by a little league game she yells out "ankees". Why drive to NY when they play right in town. LOL
