Take Me Out To The Ballgame

A couple weeks ago, we took Riley to his VERY FIRST baseball game.

The Reno Aces were playing the Fresno Grizzlies.

We won!

We sat in the Coors Light Party Zone. It was awesome because there were lots of picnic tables, which made it easy to bring the stroller down with us. A couple other people agreed they were great seats, especially with kids, because you can spread out, walk around, and it kinda helps prevent restlessness.

Big plus, now that we have the kiddo.

A lot of people from Mitch’s work were there too. I knew a few of them, and met a few others for the first time.

Mitch drank a couple beers. Texted his buddies a bunch. And had fun socializing.

I kept saying I wanted a hot dog, but, for some reason, I never got one.


Riley was tired. The little booger didn’t take a nap that morning (of course). At least he wasn’t cranky. But he didn’t have as much fun as I had hoped, because he was kinda spaced out.

He had this look on his face a lot of the day.

And although he was pretty oblivious to the game, I think he enjoyed the change in scenery.

I made me and Riley some neck coolers, thanks to this fabulous tutorial over at Little Birdie Secrets.

Don’t we look nice and COOL?

They worked pretty good, it rained that whole week, so it was a little humid. So they didn’t work quite as well as if there had been less humidity. But they still kept us much cooler than if we hadn’t had them.

One of the security guards in our section was wearing one. She thought it was cool that me and Riley had them too.

Riley got to drink from a drinking fountain. 
 He did great, and LOVED it.

His work gave us a $20 gift card for every ticket we bought. So we had $40 to spend in the gift shop.

We bought Riley a baseball cap and this little guy.

Riley smiled the biggest, happiest smile when Mitch gave it to him.

Archie’s (the mascots name) giant smile must me contagious.

We had fun!

In September we plan on taking a trip to San Francisco to take Riley to his first football game. To see the 49ers play.

He’s been a HUGE fan since the day he was born, remember?


It will be my first game too.

I can’t wait.

It was a good day. ♥
