Last night was the home opener of our AAA baseball team.  It's been sort of a tradition in our little family to go to the first home game of the season each year.  We missed last year because we were all sick.  But this year, we made our annual trip!  I packed a picnic lunch.  Big Dog bought the tickets in our favorite spot.  Take me out to the ballgame!

The weather was gorgeous!  Temperature was in the high 60's until the sun went down.  The ballpark has undergone some rennovations since last season, so everything was sparkling!  For this game, the Harrisburg Senators (our team) played the Reading Phillies.

Here's the Big Dog all ready for the game!

As you can see, our seats give us a really great view of the field and home plate!  This is the pitcher bunting.  But, he did have a nice base hit later in the game.  The Senators won 8-2!  We missed the end of the game, however, because we had an almost 1-hour drive home and the Big Dog gets up at 4:30 AM for work.

And here are our boys.  They loved the game.  We've been taking them to these games since our oldest, Big Mac, was 2 years-old.  This was the first year (they are 12 and 10) that they REALLY were into the baseball part of the game.  Going to these games is a blast because there's some sort of entertainment, game, or contest between every inning.  That has always kept the boys interest while the Big Dog and I are there for the baseball.  But this year, our two boys were very "into" the baseball game.  It was a lot of fun for all of us.
