Benjamin's first MLB game

Yesterday Benjamin went to his first Oakland A's game. (First of many, I am sure) Benjamin and Brian had matching #3 Chavez shirts that Benjamin thought was great. They had good seats in the lower deck by third base so a few foul balls came their way. In the picture you can see Ben had his glove ready to go at all times. He kept yelling to the players "Hit it to ME!"
He also got to go with Brian's brother Jon and his son Nolan, Benjamin's only male cousin.

He got to eat lots of junk food....soda.

And popcorn....
The game started at 1pm....Benjamin's nap time
But he had a great time anyways.
They lasted about 4 innings and even got free bobble heads. Benjamin loved the game!! On our way home from church today he remembered that he forgot to tell his friends about the game. He was very upset. He told me to go back so he could tell them. I convinced him that no one would be there. So he deiced he would call them instead.

That is too cute! I love his curly hair! We just went to an Astros game Saturday night and my girls loved it. They kept yelling "home run!" Josh is determined to make his girls LOVE sports! But I do have to admit their favoritee part was the cotton candy. Make sure he keeps his mit ready for the next game!
