Take Us Out to the Ball Game

Take Us Out to the Ball Game, Where we will be half the crowd;
Eight innings were spent in the bathroom, But made it back for Heyward’s homerun.

Let us root, root, root for the Cubbies, They didn’t win, it was a shame.
For it’s one, two, three strikes, you’re out, At the old ball game.


Last weekend, we had the privilege of celebrating Uncle JD’s birthday at the Cub’s game in Milwaukee. It was the girlies’ first game and our first -of hopefully many- as a family. It was a memorable day that started with a Jimmy Johns tailgate and ended with a run around the bases and birthday celebration for J.D.


It was also Grandparents’ Day and we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to showcase Papa Ron and Nana B.

While one-third of the game was truly spent on bathroom runs, it was so fun to watch how awestruck the kiddos were of the stadium, crowd and players. Theo and Ellie were most engaged with the game.


I’m now confident that Ellie could hold her own in the Wrigley Field bleachers… she shoots from the hip and is one tough cookie. I’ll just say that Bernie the Brewer is lucky she didn’t attend the meet and greet after the game otherwise he may have received a swift kick to the shins. Love our fiery Ellie Rosie!

Bella also managed to fall in love with the All-American Hot Dog during the 7th inning stretch!


My favorite part of this special day was the gathering of family and friends which simply doesn’t happen often enough.
