Take Me Out to the Ball Game: NY YANKEES!!

Take Me Out to the Ball Game: NY YANKEES!!

My husband and I are pretty big Baseball fans, New York Yankees, naturally.

Well, my husband is a pretty big fan of any sports in general.

No lie, we once watched the World Series of Darts when nothing else was on! LOL


We were lucky enough to have some tickets to the last regular game of the season at the Stadium.

Perfect time to take Evie.

We weren’t expecting everyone to be playing since they clenched the Wild Card. IE:Judge =(

So we went, knowing Evie may get bored(HA! A 3 year old bored?!)

We decided to grab a few sandwiches on the way down and give Evie the full tailgating experience.

She loved it!

Eating chips and sitting in the back of the car, what kid wouldn’t?!

Tailgating Evie Style

We took a short walk to the Stadium right before game time. I think she was in awe of all the Baseball fans (and the peddlers) we saw walking in.

We took her around the Stadium showing her all the fun stuff we loved.

She happened to notice(no surprise here) a hot pink stuffed Yankees bear at one of the stands she HAD to have. We promised, before we went back to our seats, she’d get that bear.

She would not stop talking about it as we went around the stadium. I’m pretty sure the Yankees will make sure they have enough hot pink stuffed bears in the stadium, Kid. (BUT apparently not in the “Women’s store” WTH?!)

Eventually, but not soon enough by Evie’s standards, We got to the main store and got the darn bear.

With a happy child we went back to our seats to watch the game.

We even grabbed a few snacks along the way.

You have to have a hot dog!!

Even though the Yankees lost, I think Evie enjoyed every bit of it. I know I did!

We’ll be back, I’m sure of it!!

And on to the POST SEASON!!
