Salt Lake Bees

Tonight we went to the Salt Lake Bees game with Cousin Ann and Leslie. We got hooked up with great seats right behind home plate. This was James' first baseball game. I have to admit, I did not have faith in James that he'd actually make it through an entire game. I even tried to talk Ann and Leslie into driving separate in case we have to leave early due to James. But our sweet son proved me wrong. Don't get me wrong, he has the normal attention span of a two year old, but there were no melt downs, freak outs, or misbehaving. He watched the game, let me take pictures of him, and he even got drenched by a spilled beer- that was directly over his head- and didn't make a fuss over it. We just had to listen to him repeat twenty times "Daddy spilled beer on me?" If you look close you can see the beer stains on his hat lol. Turns out, Tuesday Nights its KIDS EAT FREE. Bonus! That kept James entertained as well; his own drink, cheese-its and a hotdog (that I helped him eat). James was completely fascinated with the mascot, The Bee. At one point we were able to catch The Bee up in the walkways. To my surprise, James was not afraid once we got up close. He was so excited to be able to touch him. From there, James and I took a walk around the stadium. There was a lack of crowd tonight so there were a lot of open seats. Every once in a while, James would find himself a seat, sit down and watch some of the game. He was like his little own version of 'Goldie Locks and the Three Bears' trying to find the perfect seat that suited him. After a little train ride out in outfield, we made our way back to our seats behind home place - which were the perfect seats. It was a great night. Ah and the Bees WON! Thanks Les for such a fun night out. We definitely plan to go back to more games. Here are some pictures.
