As previously mentioned, Bryan and I are heathens and don't celebrate Easter (or any religious holiday for that matter, I compromised on Christmas and we do a secular Santa thing).
Anyway, this means that while a good portion of the country is attending services, attempting to find colorful lost eggs (that symbolize fertility, which I always find amusing), or eating copious amounts of glazed ham, we are free to go out and do whatever. Only nothing is open.
Except the ballpark!
So we pack up today, and with the help of my parents (who are also heathens *lol*), we traveled to Oakland to see the A's play the Mariners. Bryan is a HUGE baseball fan, and has been following the career of Ken Griffey Jr. for well, all of Griffey's career. Since Junior signed with the Mariners this season (well, re-signed since he started with the M's as a rookie), we have become Mariner's fans for this season. Last year it was the Reds and White Sox.
This was a big day of firsts for Penny. First BART ride (Bay Area Rapid Transit - it's like a train). First Baseball game, first time in a high-chair. Yep! Eventful day!
She did great, the game got a little noisy in the bottom of the 9th when the A's had a chance to come back to win (but didn't - Go Mariners! It was a sweep!). She got a little fussy then, but I packed her in the Sungli and she was fine. (We're also experimenting with carriers since while I love our stroller, it's a bit bulky for traveling).
Anyway, here are some pictures. Enjoy!
Take Us Out to the Ballgame...
Buy Me Some Peanuts...(forgot to buy Crackerjacks!)
Hey, this highchair thing is kinda cool!
Hey Mom, stop taking pictures of me!
Oh! If I have time tomorrow I will complain about Grad School.
