Eliza's first baseball game

Eliza and I were invited recently to join our friends Kevin and Emma at the Albuquerque Isotopes baseball game. Kevin had some tickets for his office VIP suite, which was air conditioned and behind glass and very swanky. I was glad to see that we could sit outside though, because being at a ball park again really brought back a flood of memories from my childhood. Isotopes park is no Wrigley Field, but the sounds and smells were similar. Eli and I both had a great time. Thanks Kevin and Emma!

I lifted these photos from Kevin's blog, where you can see all of them. Here are the girls in the suite, and outside next to the press box.

After the game the kids got to run the bases. Eli and Emma are among the gang crossing home plate.

And here they are posing for Kevin after the run.

huzzah! on the only trip i've ever made to chicago, i *really* wanted to watch a cubs game. alas, they were out of town and i had to settle for seeing the white sox. it was wrigley field i really wanted to see.

i find triple-A baseball a lot more fun to watch. plays that wouldn't be close in the majors leave you on the edge of your seat instead.

there is almost certainly something in rooting for the home team as well. ^_^
