Brady's first Baseball Game

My Mom graciously comes down on Fridays to help me out with the kids and their school schedules.  Rylee loves that Yaya picks her up from school and Brady knows when Yaya comes down it's time for school.  When we've spent more than one or two days with my mom Rylee will cry for Yaya when she leaves.  This particular day Rylee cried and cried and cried, I don't think my mom could take it . . . so she offered to take her home and bring her back the next day for soccer . . . No brainer . . . sure!!  I called Chris, told him Rylee went to Riverside and we just had Brady.  His first question was why didn't she take Brady too??  After that got answered we started to think of what to do that Brady might think was fun.  There is this inflatable world that has all giant inflatable slides and jumpies down in Mission Valley.  Perfect, a place where he could run and do whatever he wanted to do without restrictions or having to be told NO!!! 
He loved it.  He ran from slide to slide . . ."C'mon Mama . . . "C'mon Dada"  It was great that we got to focus on Brady and he was in charge.  He usually follows Rylee around and goes where ever she goes but here it was all him. 
After bouncing and sliding all over the place we thought he might like to go see his first baseball game down at Petco.  Crazy that Rylee's first game was at Angle Stadium and Brady's was at Petco    :(  I was a little sad but Petco is an amazing stadium with so much to see!!  We got back in the car and headed downtown.  Brady was like a deer in the headlights, up on Chris's shoulders taking in all the sights.  We ate in the gaslamp amongst all the rowdy fans and bought the cheapest tickets we could find.  We knew that Brady would not sit through one inning but once we got in he loved checking everything out. 


In the outfield there is a little beach and he loved being down there playing in the sand watching the baseball players warming up!

After he got antsy we headed WAY up to the top to have a look from above.  It was great, when we got up there I was pointing out the pitcher and batter saying watch him hit the ball and he hit a really high pop fly that was practically eye level with where we were.  Then every batter Brady would asked "in the sky??"  Of course they were all strikes and ground outs!!  We ate our ice cream and before we knew it, it was way past bedtime.  Home from downtown by 8pm is the earliest I think I have ever gone home.  Life sure is different with kids!!!
We had a great time and I think Brady LOVED it.  Chris and I decided that we need to do more things with the kids separately.  It was such a joy just to focus on one kiddo and watch everything through their eyes.  We weren't going in two directions, Brady dictated where he wanted to go and we followed.  Brady is getting bigger and bigger by the minute.  I feel like he is more in tune with the world around him and is starting to figure it all out!!
Loved our date with the Brady Man!!
Next we are going to take Rylee miniature golfing!!!
