Boy’s Night Out
(Written by Quatro Daddy)
I got ticket’s to an Indianapolis Indian’s baseball game last week from my good friend Chris. Jen had already tweeted about going to a game, so I thought, “perfect, a night at the ballgame! We quickly figured out that the game would interfere with some other plans that Jen had made, so I was left with the choice, stay home or take the boys to the game myself.
So glad I chose the latter. Turns out, my sister Kristy and her husband Ryan were already planning to go to the same game. It was a beautiful Indiana summer evening at Victory Field, picture perfect for baseball.
After driving all of us downtown, I parked at the Indianapolis Zoo, which is only about a 10 minute walk from Victory Field, and best of all it’s free parking! As we crossed Washington Street, the boys all spotted aunt Kristy and uncle Ry-Ry and started screaming their names.
I will admit, I got to see very little of the game itself, but the evening turned out to be a blast. Kristy and her husband were such a huge help in keeping the boys entertained. Kristy made some concession stand runs for us, and the boys LOVED the grassy hill that surrounds the outfield there. There could not be a more perfect place to take young kids than this grassy picnic area in the outfield. I only wish we could have made it to more games this season.
It is difficult to describe how entertaining it was for us, so I think I will let the pictures tell the story!
(Brooks) I love baseball daddy, even when I don’t watch a single moment of the game!
(Isaac) How many times can I run up, then roll down the hill before I pass out?
(Clark) He doesn’t have to say anything, that look is pure mischief!
(Henry) Again daddy? Again?
The boys had so much fun on this little hill. Kuddos to the Indian’s organization for keeping such an incredibly clean and well maintained ballpark for all of us to enjoy, it made for a wonderful evening. And for all you mom’s out there eyeing that concrete wall at the bottom of the hill, I am happy to report that no one was hurt in the making of this blog post!
Thanks again to Kristy and Ryan for making my night enjoyable as well! Love you guys.
