We wanted to make sure that our family experiences lots of fun activities this summer before Baby Bob arrives. Myrtle Beach & Wisconsin Dells were definitely the "big" events, but we're also trying to do some things a little closer to home.

Last night, we went to the Railcats game. Keith can get $5 tickets through work from time to time, and we usually try to invite family or friends to go with us. This time, Grandma & Grandpa S came along...and so did Emma! This was Emma's first "real" baseball game, so she was pretty excited.

For July 17th, the weather was not at all what you would expect. It was in the low 60s, gray and drizzly. Looking around the stadium and seeing how everyone was dressed, you'd think it was October!

The game was fairly boring, but there were a few exciting plays...and the Railcats won! The mascots, Rusty and Rascal, kept Emma entertained...and Alex was amused, too. (Although Alex would have been just as content watching the trucks on the highway and the airplanes flying overhead, silly boy!)

Alex mostly wanted either Grandpa or Mama. Poor Daddy and Grandma didn't get much of his attention. Grandma bribed him with a juice box and played with one of his favorite books. These pictures turned out a little blurry, and I am SO disappointed. Alex's delight was so sweet!

After the Friday games, there is a fireworks show...and I'll never complain about an opportunity to see fireworks! It's so tempting, though, to watch Alex's face instead of the fireworks. He just smiles away!

Wisconsin Dells post is coming soon, and our next "big event" is the demolition derby at the fair...hopefully perfect for the boy who loves all things car & truck!
