the plan was that we were supposed to go tuesday but when jer found out verlander was pitching monday night that was the game we had to be at. he came home from work early. that's rare & was kinda nice. we stopped at mickey d's for some dinner on the road & we were off to st.pete.
after all this time something about watching a baseball game inside just doesn't seem right. but then i remembered how hot it was outside & remembered that's the best way to watch anything in florida. inside. in the ac. not to mention when we got there is started storming like crazy so inside worked to our advantage again.
the kids were pretty well behaved & we had fun but to be completely honest i think they're a bit young for it. they were excited by the stadium & the excitement. but neither of them obviously knew what was going on. the game started at 7:10 which is about 20 minutes before they usually start getting ready for bed & they were just getting restless having to be contained in one spot. some pretzels & cotton candy helped a little.
a little stressful yes but i always love heading out on new family adventures & the tigers won so all in all it was a winning night.
...oh & we got to sleep till almost 10am the next morning :) obviously it wore them out!
