Here are some pictures from their adventure. Now that's a cactus.
Chip in his gloves. You have to take them off to eat pizza, kid!
Back down to Chase Field for the All-Star game.
The atmosphere was so exciting. You felt like you were part of something pretty special.
Big crowds, lots of energy! At one point, we were standing behind the section right behind home plate, where the seats were super expensive. A guy was sitting down in that section and sent the usher up to ask Harry where he got his Red Sox hat. We told him he got it at FanFest. The guy wanted to buy it right off Harry's head. There was a price put up of $100, but the size was way too small for the guy! The negotiations fell apart.
More batting practice.
Then it was time for the fanfare....announcements of each player....the starters....the national anthem.
For the game they all wore their own team uniforms, which made it much easier for me to pick out some guys I recognized.
Then the game got underway! It was fun to watch. During the 7th inning they did a Stand Up for Cancer commercial. We stood up for Callie, my grandma Martha and my sweet friend's mom Bobbye. It was really a cool moment.
Side Note: Aiden's family brought a couple of bottles and fed him two ounces at 7:00 p.m. and then he had another ounce and a half at 8:30. She was going to breastfeed him in the car on the way home.
Clampetts to leave baseball heaven and head back to reality.
Reality meant we arrived home at 10:30 p.m. on Wednesday night - immediately started the washing machine - stayed up until about 12:30 getting unpacked. Woke up at 6:00 a.m. on Thursday to start working on the emergency that cropped up yesterday. Worked 10 1/2 hours on Thursday. Finished the laundry. Repacked to leave for Alaska. Stayed up until about 1:00 a.m. wrapping up loose ends. Alarm went off at 4:15 a.m. on Friday to shower and head to the airport for a 7:15 a.m. flight to Seattle. Back to back vacations can kill you!
We are in Seattle now! Boat leaves at 4:00 this afternoon. Can't wait to upload pictures from our afternoon in Seattle! Hope I can blog regularly from the cruise! I am exhausted, but thrilled!
