The Brewer Game...

On Sunday we packed up the girls and drove down to Milwaukee to see the Brewers. We had a great time. it was Ellie's 1st game. We got there about 1 1/2 hours before the game so we could walk around and check out the cool kids area. The girls got their faces painted. Taylor tried to out run Cory Hart to first base, pitched a few balls and ran with the sausages. Ellie went down Bernie Brewer's slide a few times and watched Taylor do all the other things. Both girls also took their picture with Prince Fielder and Ryan Braun. This was all the Fun things in the Kids area. I totally recommend it to anyone that goes to the game with kids. The best part is it was all free in the kids area. Taylor was a little bummed because the make your own baseball card wasn't working. The girls also took some pictures with the different sausages. We all ate some lunch and went and watched an awesome game. Not to mention the weather was perfect for baseball. It was wonderful until we had to sit in the parking lot for about 30 minutes, but when we got on the road it didn't take long until the girls fell asleep. We finished our day with dinner at the Ground Round. When we got home we all were pooped out. It was an early night at the Van Hammond's.

Tonight Taylor had soccer practice. It is one of the last ones. So they had a game with the parents against the kids. I had to work so Tom went. Taylor told me that the kids won by 1 goal. I will have to get Tom's side to see how he feels after playing soccer. the girls are going up to my parents trailer this weekend so hopefully i will get some new pictures and maybe some good stories. Toodles N :)

Awesome, sounds like I'd have fun going down a slide. Do they let adults play in the kids area, too? hehe :) Well someday it will be cool to take my little on there for some fun! LOVE this new pictures!!
