Friday night was Ryan’s company party. I’m glad we rearranged our schedule so that we could all go, because it was really fun. We went to the Bee’s baseball game. We haven’t taken our kids to a baseball game (other than all three girls’ playing softball this year) in a couple of years, and they were excited. If only it hadn’t been 100 degrees!
Dinner and treats were provided, and the kids all got their own Control 4 baseballs, which they were excited about.
One of the fun things they did was to give each employee a player to root for. We got #26 on the other team. When our guy was up to bat, we cheer and pay attention, and then if he scores, we score. If he gets on first base, it’s $10, second base, $20, third base, $30, and a home run is worth $50. This made the game so much more fun, as people around us were all cheering for “their guys” and collecting money if their guy did well. Unfortunately, our guy only made us 20 bucks, but hey, that’s 20 buck to pay for the gas to get there, and paid for Ryan’s 5 dollar snow cone.
Because it was so dang hot, we went through a lot of drinks and snacks, but it really was fun. We were sitting by our friends
And John made a new friend (Thanks, IVY!) who played with him and kept him entertained the whole night.
And after the game was over there were fireworks. It was the perfect night at the ball game.
And the next night we went to see the OSMONDS!!! I’ll write more about that later!
