Take Them Out to the Ballgame!

My amazing boss and his wife treated my co-workers and our families to a fun night of food, fellowship and baseball last Friday night.  We went to the Smokies Stadium to see the Smokies take on a team from Jacksonville.  This was the first time the kids have been to a "real" baseball game.
They had so much fun getting to know the kids and adults that shared the suite/box with us.  There was plenty of food to allow us to graze all evening on something (including hot dogs, hamburgers, pizza, chips, salad, ice cream and cookies).  We were also treated to an amazing fireworks show after the Smokies won the game!  The kids seemed a little surprised at how loud the fireworks were, but they quickly discovered how beautifully they lit up the sky and it seemed to calm any fears or concerns. 

We hope to take them back to a game again soon, but I wonder if they will expect the star-treatment again with access to air-conditioning, sofas, tables, unlimited food and so many wonderful people around to get to know?????  It was definitely a night full of great memories!

Thanks Mr. Mike and Ms. Lisa and to all of my amazing co-workers for helping me keep track of my kiddos!
