Take me out to the.....

"bayball game," as Ella would sing during the 7th inning stretch! One of our favorite things to do this summer has been to go to the Spokane Indians baseball games. We have been to three so far, with our last one being tomorrow night. We get the $5 bench seats, bring our own snacks and enjoy the game. The kids love it, and I must say they are so well behaved for the 3+ hours of sitting there. Ella particularly loves dancing to all of the music, the kid goes crazy when the Indians score a run, they play the same song and everyone gets up and dances (it's the song they used to play on the Six Flags commercials, the one that the creepy old man dances too.) Ella's very favorite time of the night is during the 5th inning when they do the chicken dance. She of course gets tons of comments about how cute she is every time we are there, which she just eats up and performs that much more!! Hunter actually loves the game this year and understands it, his favorite is when we go to fireworks nights!! Here are a bunch of pictures I took the last time we went, after spending all day at the lake, and a short video of Ella doing the chicken dance after of course she had already done her best run through : )















Ella had a little accident, fell face first from the bleachers onto the concrete. It was a horrible looking fall, everyone in the bleachers behind us gasped. Fortunately she only scuffed up her nose!

My very favorite part of the night.... watching my little guy watch the fireworks. I just love him.
