Take me out to the Ballgame….

Yep. We took the boys to their first “real” baseball game! Aunt Tamara and Uncle Joe joined us, as did my Auntie Jean and Uncle Doug! It was fantastic Open-mouthed smile And we were SO close to the field that everyone could really see what was going on! Ok, so the heat was a bit of a downer…103 with no breeze at all, but we were in the shade…and the boys got a teeny bit overheated before the first inning was even over, which they actually figured out how to use to their advantage by asking for more juice every 20 minutes which meant a trip back up the stairs to walk around all the vendors so they could pick out a different juice to try. YEP, they got spoiled! Jon also to JT to the “Meat Locker” (which is the gift shop) to pick out a hat. HOWEVER, once inside JT took his sweet little time looking at everything! And even picked out a hat to buy for Brady! Guess he really liked being in the A/C Smile 

Brady, JT, Tamara and I left during the 5th inning as the little boys had had enough and were actually asking to “go home to take a bath and go to bed”. It was so cute. Everyone else stayed for the rest of the game and the KC T-Bones won the game 8-3.

The only picture that I took with a family member in it was of Brady styling his new hat! Not sure how I “forgot” to take a group pic of us all there….think I can blame it on the heat??!! Smile with tongue out

Here is the LO that I created to document our Baseball outing. It is loosely based on a Pagemaps sketch.The paper that I used is from the Scraptastic Summer Picnic Kit. If you have not checked out Scraptastic & the fantastic kits Jessica puts together, you really should. Go. Now!

I always keep the tags and receipts from all of our trips/outings just in case! And they really came in handy with this LO. I had some blank spaces that I just was not liking so I picked through what I had saved and used them on the LO. I really like how it adds to the page.

    Again there was a “white” space that was just not doing it for me so I smushed up 2 bottle caps with my Cuttlebug, circle punched some of the printed paper from the kit that says “happy” and “memory”, then fussy cut out leaves and made the caps look like flowers. I covered the bottle caps and paper with Ranger Glossy Accents to give them a finished look. I also used a black gel pen around the outside edges of some of the banners on the paper to make them pop. I really LOVE the way this turned out!!
