This morning we woke up in Racine. Grandma Kay and Evan made a delicious breakfast before we headed out to the Brewers Game.
Then it was time for the game! Grandma Kay, Grampa Arnie, and Grandma Barb all came with us. We went nice and early to watch batting practice and explore the stadium and some of the kids games. Evan was fired up and wore his brewers shirt, hat, arm bands, and gloves. He was ready! Drew was decked out too, though somewhat less impressed at his first MLB game. I guess he is only 2 months old.
Evan played on the slide and gym set outside, and found some of the fun running and throwing games inside. He's a natural!
When we went down to the field for batting practice, a nice staff member saw Evan and brought him a ball - straight off the field! He was absolutely thrilled! He was stoked to see his favorite players: "Brian Braun and Frince Pielder." Hehe!
Our seats were in the Dew Deck, so we had a great view of the game. Bernie even came up to say hi! Evan had been talking about him well before we left for WI, and promised to be nice and brave and give Bernie a hug. Even as we walked up to our seats he was excited to hug Bernie. But when he actually showed up, it was a complete other story. I guess we're not quite fully over the mascot fear yet. Maybe next year.
Drew loved being at the game too. He watched all the colors and people, had a snack or two, and stayed awake for most of the game. The Brewers won, and everyone declared it a definite fun day. Go, Brewers, go!
