Take Me Out to the Ball Game

Chloe finally experienced her first baseball game. I would have taken her sooner, but Marky Mark doesn't really care for the sport. Blasphemous? Yes. Who would have thought I would ever marry someone who didn't have a love of the game? Still, I have no complaints. :)

We just went to a Round Rock Express game. They are a triple-A minor league team that is affiliated with the Texas Rangers. (When I moved here they were a feeder for the Houston Astros. I guess ole Nolan Ryan (owns the team) decided to 'change up.')

Anyway, we went out to catch a few innings on Wednesday. When we went up to the window to purchase tickets, a couple gave us three for free! How nice is that?!? I'll have to come up with a good way to 'pay it forward.'

We only made it through the top of the fourth inning. That's pretty good for a two year old, right? When we left Chloe yelled, "Bye, baseball. See you soon." haha. I also taught her to talk a little trash to the opposing team. She learned to yell "sit down" when an opposing player strikes out. Now I just have to teach her not to yell "please" after. Still it was sweet when she yelled, 'sit down, please' after a player struck out.

Sorry for the crappy photos. I think my point and click is on it's last leg (it's got to be 6 years old). I didn't want to take my nice camera out there. Try and enjoy.





By the way, we don't know the other little girl in this video. Chloe just decided that she wanted to roll down the hill with her. She's never met a stranger.  I think the older girl had fun trying to teach her how it's done.


  1. Glad the family had a fun time at the ballgame.Chloe seems to enjoy all the places you take her to.She learns so fast and takes part in all things you share with her. The ball- park looks so nice and all taken care of. Chloe looks so cute in her nice suit.

  2. Crunch, crunch, crunch go the baseball cleats. :) Glad y'all had a good time.

  3. Oh how much fun!! We took Julianna a couple months ago to a minro league game here (I won't spend hte money to take her to a Yankee game yet b/c I doubt she'll make it 9 innings and this mama needs to watch her team!! LOL) - We got lucky b/c we were abe to hang out in the grassy field at the stadium we went to here... or she wouldn't have lasted in her seat no doubt!! Chloe did good - and she made friends even LOL! :)
