I wanted to blog today - I've been trying to blog at least once a week . . .Hodge Podge Wednesday over at "From this side of the pond" is moving (literally - household) this week so she didn't post any new questions. I scrolled through my drafts to see if I had any pictures loaded and look what I found. Pictures from the ONE and only baseball game I have attended this summer. We have this incredible new baseball park in Birmingham -- Regions Field. Several years ago, I posted about walking at Railroad Park
in a mental health walk. Regions Field is just down the street. They have made this a very nice area and my daughter and I felt pretty safe - yes, I said "pretty safe" - walking a couple of blocks. I wouldn't want to walk it by myself. Laura's friends gave us their tickets and as you can see, we had primo seats! We had a girl's night at the baseball game - which is quite hysterical because neither of us knows that much about baseball! Of course, we had to have a hot dog - what is a baseball game without a hot dog??
I love love love to people watch and a ballgame is the perfect place to watch people. It never ceases to amaze my what you might see!
I was paying enough attention to take a picture of the action - hee hee!
My FAVORITE part of the game was the fireworks at the end . . and the hot dog! This is really sad but I'm not sure I watched much of the game at all. We didn't get there until right before the seventh inning stretch and then I ran into our friends, Preston and Frances. I really wanted to talk to them! The time passed rather quickly. I must reiterate that I just love watching the people!!
The fireworks show was amazing. I love it when you can feel the BOOM in your chest - you know what I mean?
Want to know something really neat? The building right behind the fireworks is our Children's Hospital. The kids at the hospital can watch the fireworks from the windows!! I know that I took way too many pictures of fireworks but I really really really love them!
more pics of fireworks . . .keep going . . .
and more . . .
can you tell that I really love fireworks?
Do you have any sports team that you love? It is almost football season here and the rivalries are fierce. We are Auburn Tigers - through and through at our house. I said that we paid Auburn enough money when our kids were there that I would cheer for them no matter what! Have you been to any baseball games this summer? Do you plan to go to any football games this fall? I love to hear what other folks are doing!!
