We took Z to our local ballpark this week and he loved it! What a treat for me to watch my son's eyes light up as we walked into the stadium :) He loves watching and playing baseball and so when I told him we were going to go to a baseball game he jumped up and down with excitement.
As much as we love our Red Sox it is too difficult and too expensive for us to justify taking Z. We use to average 15 games a season before Z, now we are lucky if we make it to 3 :) We did see them in game 7 last year against the Indians though. What a game!!!!! (Z stayed home with his grandparents)
For 1/4 of the price of a Sox game, we can go and see our local ball team and have a similar baseball experience. We took Z last year but he was too young to appreciate it. This year (at all of 19 months) he was clapping, eating junk food and calling out "nice trow!". It was adorable and he lasted 3 whole innings :)
As I said to S, as long as he doesn't know any different, we will be making frequent trips to this stadium and wait until he is 6 or 7 for his first trip to Fenway :) That will be another special day for me. I can't wait to see his eyes light up again as he first sets his eyes on that big Green Monster!
