Taking a cue from Slacker Mama, the Sweet Pea family headed out to see the Columbus Clippers yesterday. Thanks for the great idea Slacker! Anyone want to guess how many innings we made it through with G & R? Drumroll please...8, yes 8 innings.They both seemed to really enjoy it. G kept saying "ball! ball!" and R had fun following the mascots around the stadium (G is somewhat weary of any large character...on Saturday we were at our local water park and Elmo came for a birthday. Despite Elmo being G's #1 guy, he screamed when we got too close.)
The weather was perfect, the game was fun and the cool thing is that the Clippers are the AAA squad for the Washington Nationals, our former hometown team. They played the AAA team for the Reds and ended up losing a heartbreaker, 2-1.
In honor of our trip to Cooper Stadium, I penned this song:
"Take me out to the Ball Game, take me out with my boys!
Bring the SPF and the Matchbox Cars, God help us if we don't bring some toys.
We'll it's root, root, root for our new team, gosh I hope they aren't lame!
For it's one, two, three, a "time out!" if you're bad at the ball game!"
Ok, so a songwriter I am not.
After feasting on ballpark food last night, our meals for the week will begin with:
Grilled Sockeye Salmon, Spinach Salad and Grilled Zucchini
Grilled Pizza (yeah, I know, we have it about every week, but it is soooo good)
Greek Chicken Burgers
Have a sweet week,
