Grandparents & Slushies

My kids spend a LOT of time at the ball park. We really like the parks that have a playgound close by. When there's not a playground you've got to make your own fun.
This handy little area at one of the parks became known as "the arts and crafts table". It was right by the bleachers so we could keep an eye on the kids and several families had crayons and paper that were shared by all. It was a hit!

Of course, if Grandma & Grandpa happen to stop by the park then they can usually be convinced to spring for a slushie.
They're the best! (Grandparents I mean...and slushies too.)
Quick! Put your money away Grandpa or they'll happily spend it for you!

Baseball Quote of the day:
A critic once characterized baseball as six minutes of action crammed into two-and-one-half hours. ~Ray Fitzgerald, in Boston Glove, 1970

Gotta love the grandparents! And the people that come prepared with things to do :)

Grandparents rock!
Almost as much as slushees.

That quote is so true. It's the SLOWEST game ever. I'm more of a contact sport kind a gal. Jaiger starts T-ball this spring and I fear that it's the begining of the end for me.

That is so true about Grandparents. My mom was the biggest tight wad you ever met. NEVER spent anything on us kids. Now she buys my kids frivelous things like treats and animal shaped hats at zoo that they'll never wear. How weird how they change!

Totally backwards, it's 2 and a half hours of excitement! Really! I know, I am a sick soul for feeling that way, but it's true. Each pitch presents a new strategy/dilemma.....
