Peanuts and Cracker Jack

Anna's first Cubs game was typical - the wind was blowing in off the lake and the bullpen was lousy. (In case you haven't figured it out, the Cubs lost.)

Anna snoozed early on and woke up during the National Anthem. She fell back asleep shortly after the start of the game and didn't wake up again until the top of the 8th inning. Here's a few highlights.

The view from our seats:

They seem so far away

The rooftop bleachers on some neighboring buildings:

How do you get tickets for those seats?

The manual scoreboard, the ivy, and the right field bleacher bums:

There are people in the scoreboard keeping it updated
View from the wheelchair accessable seating (makes me want to rent a wheelchair next time):Sweet view!
On the outdoor patio (it was warm in the sun but cold at our seats in the shade):
Anna was happy to be out on the patio
In front of the sign:

Now would be the perfect time to tell you the sign said 'Happy Birthday Arron', but it didn't

Anna on her daddy's lap right after her nap:There's still a little sleep in her eyes
Watching the game from the back of the lower deck seats:

Why did they give up another run?

When the game was over, we went to Lilly's house to see her and her parents. It was a great day.

Go Cubs!

Anna's ready for her first Cubs game today! She's on track to learn all about the pain and misery that is being a Cubs fan.

Can we hit the road now?
P.S. Happy birthday, Daddy!

Ready for Summer!

She's really sleeping

Ever the fashion guru, Anna is modeling her new sunglasses that just arrived by mail. Fortunately, it was a nice enough day for a stroll and she was kind enough to let Mom and Dad accompany her. I am sure that will change when she reaches the terrible teens.
