A Night at the Ballpark



Thursday night we took CT to his first Greensboro Grasshoppers baseball game.  It was threatening to storm on us, but we decided to chance getting caught in the rain and go anyway.  Just as we were about to leave I hopped on their website to make sure the game wasn't canceled and saw that they were holding a mustache and beard contest during the 5th inning.  I grabbed CT's mustache paci as we headed out the door because...it just had to be done.

It was a little humid, but there was this cool breeze that kept sweeping through the park every few minutes.  It was quite honestly the quintessential night at the ballpark. 


Carson loved the atmosphere.  He flirted with the ladies sitting behind us and watched the mascot dance across the jumbo screen.  There was so much to look at and he just soaked it all in.

By the time we packed up (way past CT's bedtime) and started to head home we were sticky from sweat and baby drool and Natty Greene's, but we were smiling.  Carson fell asleep before we even got out of the parking lot.


We've always loved going to Grasshopper games, but I think bringing CT made it even better.  We went ahead and bought him his own ball cap - we'll definitely be going to more games this season.

There's just something about a night at the ballpark with your family.

  1. We took our son to his first baseball game yesterday afternoon too!!! He also LOVED it. Just sat and stared and took it all in. My heart melted when, sitting on his daddy's lap, he reached over and grabbed my thumb as to say we are one big happy family at the ballpark and he LOVES it.
    You are brave going during bedtime! Our night games here at at 7:05 which is RIGHT before his bedtime so we need to keep attempting afternoon games. We could only stay for a few hours cause naptime was not happening but a super fussy baby was starting to happen haha next time we'll show up earlier to catch the beginning and hope he naps then wakes up AT the game.
