We jumped at the chance to get tickets when we heard the Cardinals were playing the Braves at Disney's Wide World of Sports! Since Carson has become quite the Cardinals fan thanks to his Daddy, we thought it would be a fun family day!
We got stuck in traffic and had to walk quite a way to the field, but the boys were troopers!! We had seats on the 3rd base lawn and it couldn't have been better for us! The boys were able to see, walk around and not be confined to a seat, and we were right in the line for foul balls!
The sun was a bit bright, but we still had so much fun cheering on our team!
The BEST part was that our seats were next to the Cardinals bull pen, so every time a ball was hit in the outfield, one of the players would toss the ball over the fence to a fan!
And look what little fan got one of those lucky balls!!!
Everyone surrounding our blanket was so excited that Carson got a ball and a sweet lady let Carson borrow her sharpie marker to get his ball signed by one of the pitchers. Carson took his marker and stood by the fence waiting for a pitcher to walk by between innings. Right before the next inning began, Lee Stoppelman, a rookie pitcher for the Cardinals, walked right by Carson and Carson asked so politely if he would sign his ball! And he did!
Then another Cardinals player tossed Tanner a ball over the fence too! As you can see, TT was a little excited! What sweet players!
Carson and his signed ball...
We had a blast sitting on the field and chowing down some good ole' ballpark food!
And our spunky TT danced to every song played! (He gets it from his Mama!)
It was really hot (the reason why the boys have no shoes on!) but we had such a fun time and made awesome memories! We are so glad we got to see the "real" Cardinals play, and even better, they beat the Braves!
