The Schwartz's vs the 6th of July at the Ball Game

I was on the phone at the right time to score some sweet tickets to the ball game for July 6th.  I was having my morning chat with Annie when she mentioned that she was in the mood to go to the ball game.  She checked the schedule and saw that they had fireworks for the July 4th game and then again on July 6th at their Military Appreciation Night.  And since I was on the phone while she discovered this, she asked if my family wanted to come too.  Heck yeah!  We've never been to Tom's awesome company suite at the redbirds.  It was great.  

I love baseball.  Ok, let's be honest.  I love the food at the baseball stadium.  Chicken-on-a-Stick for the win.  We ate dinner before we went to the game but even after having ice cream in the 7th inning Chris could tell I was sad.  So he wandered off and came back with a Chicken-on-a-Stick for me.  It was worth every fried calorie.  So good.  I really want to go to a ball game today just thinking about it.  Yum!

I also love listening to all the player's different "get pumped" songs that play while they are warming up at bat.  It always leads to a fun conversation of what song would you have them play while you warmed up.  Mine changes every time.  Chris has always been consistent with "Rock You Like a Hurricane" and as I was bragging to Annie that I just KNEW he would say that.  He said something else!  What!?!  I can't even remember what he said because it was the wrong answer.  This time I was feeling a little nostalgic and said Destiny's Child, "Survivor".  

What would your get pumped song be?

Chris and the kids.  Sarah rocking her purple socks.  So what if they don't match the outfit?

Hanging out with the Combs is awesome.  Jessie is Sarah's best friend and they can entertain each other for hours.  Having suite seats meant they could run around and get restless without bothering anyone and we didn't have to try to hold them down in seats.  I don't know if the girls watched any of the game but they had a blast playing together.


I'm pretty sure Cody would rather live with the Combs.  He loves them!  Annie is his girlfriend and when he gets a boo-boo if she's around he goes to her before me for the post trauma cuddles.  If you say, "Cody where's your girlfriend" he'll either point to Annie or go running over to her.  And right now Wy-Wy is his best friend.  He can be ornery loading into the car most times but not when you say, "we're going to see Wy-Wy" he beelines to the car and lets you buckle him up.

This picture is giving me issues.  I have night mares caused by it now.  My big 3-0 is coming up.  I thought I was ok with it.  I started rounding up last year when I turned 29.  It was just easier to say things like, "I can't stay up past 9.  I'm 30." or "I can't go to a midnight movie, I'm 30".  Yet when Annie took this for us and I saw it all of a sudden I saw what 30 looks like and I'm not a fan.  Not a fan at all.  I would sit here and point out all the things I don't like about this picture but I hate it when women do that.  Let's just say that since I avoid the mirror during the day, and I am usually the one taking the pictures it's been a while since I've REALLY stared at my own face.  And I'm now a wrinkly 30 year old not the beaming 21 year old bride that is in most of the pictures on the walls of my home. 

After the redbirds won we were treated to another wonderful firework show.  

Now I gotta go eat some chicken on a stick and listen to some 90s pop music.  Yes.
