My Oh My . . . What Fun!


Recently we went to a Mariner's game as a family. The kids and I drove around and met Daddy at work where he could have the opportunity to show us his office and meet his co-workers. He works in a beautiful building. On one side you can see the water and the view is just spectacular. The other side has a view of the city. If you get really close to the window and look down it gives you a sick feeling - seeing how high up in the air you are. Phillip works right downtown, so after that we strapped Chlobug into the front pack carrier and headed off to the game. We love getting the hotdogs (or polish sausages) before the entrance. I got a Buhner dog. It has grilled onions and and slab of cream cheese on top! SOOO YUMMY! I thought about taking pictures of it - but decided not to as I may look like a freakshow! (Like there aren't enough in the city!) After a good time trying to down the dog with Chloe reaching for every bite - off we went. Our seats were amazing. The picture you see above was taken from my seat. We were right behind Ichiro. Phillip got seats that were located in the family (no alcohol) section. It was really nice to not have to deal with anyone who might be three sheets to the wind. (Whatever that means???) There were families with newborns right next to us. The game was awesome. The weather was in the mid 70's. It was just a great evening spent with the family. Ethan was so excited that Daddy got him a "finger", as he calls it. Here is a cute picture with him holding it up. We had to keep warning the

kids to not whack the people in front of them with their fingers.
Ellie got a pink one. Ellie was so cute. We now call her the peanut monster. She LOVES peanuts.


Here she is peeling them ever so carefully with her fingers. Then she would pop that one in her mouth and hunt for more. It was hilarious to watch how diligent she was. She must be like her mama when it comes to food.









Here she is emptying the bag of Cracker Jack. This girl loves her snacks.

Oh how sweet, love the post! What a fun time. We have never done that as a whole family, we should try that sometime. Love the photo of Ellie unwrapping her peanuts... I like the name peanut monster too! Do you guys have one of those framed (think hiking) type backpack baby carriers? I love them because how easy they are to carry and that the baby can't grab as much! We have an extra if you are interested!

Oh that's just hilarious! You guys looked like you had a blast - and I'm sure that her persistence in food hunting will serve her well in the future. Somehow. :) Thanks for your encouragement - yes, I'm going to try and post more pictures soon. I think I like it.

oh these are great....we have been watching them quite a bit this year....just wish they would win more...and explain to me why Ichiro goes by his first name and all the rest go by the last, as their name on their uniform. I think I drive Jim crazy when I ask questions like that...hehehe!!!!
I have never been but would love to before it gets hot...and want it to be a Diet Free day....
No excuse, we just haven't done it...

These pictures are great! I love the pictures of Ethan and the "finger" and Ellie with her cracker jack bag. How cute! What a fun time together as a family. There's a good idea for Josh's birthday. How did Phillip get the tickets? Or if you have another idea please help. Sam's is the 3rd and we're going to the zoo and Josh's is the 8th but it seems like we never do anything special for Josh's because of their birthdays being so close. together.
