Your team (almost) getting shut out?

Go have fun on the slide!

We took my Mom and our girls up to AT&T Park today to hopefully see the Giants sweep the Houston Astros. We shut out the Astros on both Friday and Saturday night. We ended up losing the game today, 7-1. Booooo! We made the most of the day anyway. And it was "free T-shirt" day. Just a few photos to share, with those that care. ;)

This is the second losing game I've been to this year. Not as exciting as a winning game. LOL I made sandwiches this morning and chocolate chip cookies to bring up with us. We brought a cooler with ice and water bottles too. Of course we had packed some peanuts, Dots, chips and caramel corn too. The only thing we had to pay for at the park was $30 parking, a couple beers for Keith and an elephant ear for me. At least we didn't break the bank this time. I still don't know how families afford a day at the ballpark these days.
I have the SF Half Marathon in three weeks. I need to see if I can run flat surfaces without dying, real quick here. I should really get on that.
Illegal fireworks/crackers are still going off in our neighborhood. I know....... special, isn't it? This sends Boomer into a tizzy. Lavender essential oil on the back of his neck seems help him quite a bit. This is a big relief for all of us.
Until later.............

Oh, fun times with the fam. Always good. Love her with her cap on;) Perfect.

...did I tell you, I MIGHT get to try out some single track in Colorado later this week. It might me more like a hike than a run but I'm going to try. Lord help me...

Looks like you still had some fun.

I'm not big into baseball (I don't really have a team), but Husband is a Cubs fan - I get the whole losing isn't as fun concept. LOL

Bummer that they lost, but looks like a great time anyway!

We don't go to the ball park much in the summer because it costs an arm and a leg every time! You spend sooo much more on food/drinks than the actual tickets.
