Padre's Game 07/08

Can you tell how much he loves baseball? We took Hayden to watch the Padres back in July. We knew he would love it because all he ever talks about is "ball". He could watch baseball on t.v. forever and watches every move. When someone hits, pitches or catches the ball he says "Whoa! Whoa! Whoa!" At the real game he was a little disappointed because he held his glove out for a while but the players weren't throwing the ball all the way up to the top of the old Western Metal building so he could catch it.

It really was a great evening. Kevin and I enjoyed ourselves too! My work sponsored the whole evening for us and my co-workers complete with a hamburger and hot dog buffet, cracker jacks and raffle prizes. We didn't win anything, but watching Hayden's face light up when he saw the real thing was priceless. Kevin's friend Vanessa was there with her twin girls. Her husband is Mike Jacobs, the first baseman for the Marlin's who were playing the Padres that night. I'm kind of bummed I didn't get a picture of the twin girls, they are adorable! Maybe Mike can give Hayden some pro pointers someday...
