Life as a mom who has her hands full
With baby #4 due in October, I realized that I wanted to spend a little more time with my 2 older children. Aidan is starting Kindergarten next week, so I decided to take him to see the St. Louis Cardinals play baseball. It was his first game and BOY was it memorable. We took the Metro Link to the stadium and for all practical purposes, we took a TRAIN! He was soo excited. When we got to the stadium, I thought he was going to dance out of his shorts he was so excited. He bounced and bopped all the way up to the upper deck where our seats were. We bought peanuts, cracker jacks and lemonade and settled into our seats to watch Chris Carpenter pitch against the Cincinatti Reds. He was yelling and laughing the entire time and even had the people around us singing ” Take me OUt to the Ballgame” in the 5th inning!!! When Albert Pujols hit a homerun, I thought he was going to lose it! The fireworks went off and he turned to me and said..”Mommy, I don’t want to watch them on TV anymore…we are going to come here all the time instead!”
The night ended with a nice train ride back to the car and choruses of “Take me out to the Ballgame”!
2 tickets in the upper deck to see the Cardinals play…$40
Lemonade, cracker jacks and peanuts…$20
