So I’m an East Coast girl. I was born in Connecticut, and grew up between CT and Pennsylvania. I’ve lived in both North and South Carolina….. I have no idea how I ended up in the Midwest….okay, so it was because of my husband, but still, I’m a total East Coast girl, and as much as I love Illinois, I’m a proud nutmegger (that’s what you’re called if you’re from CT because it’s the “nutmeg state,” which is crazy, since I’ve never been invited to a nutmeg farm).
So when the St. Louis Cardinals (Bill’s team) offered $5.00 MLB tickets, I jumped on the chance. Being he sometimes gets anxiety in crowds, and can have a panic attack, I was fine spending the money to see how he would do, and would not care if we had to leave early.
The good news is he did GREAT (organized seating seems to be better for him than a mass crowed. Some veterans, sadly, can’t do either).
The better news? I was able to get the tickets against the Mets (from New York…which is where my family is from) and the Mets WON!!!!
We had a great family night out, and aside from the unexpected fireworks (which again, Bill did great) we had a blast. (No pun intended). I just wish venues would warn about fireworks! We went to a fair one time and we had no idea fireworks were going to go off. My poor husband freaked out because we were in a metal building and it was just a horrible sound, especially if you’re not expecting it. It reminds him of gunfire.
Side note, next time get seats on the lower level, because we were almost at the top and I don’t do well that high up!
Liam had no idea what I meant when I said we were going to watch the Mets, but he was excited to go! Talia wanted to stay home because it wasn’t hockey….she got over it!
Once we gave these to Liam, he started practicing throwing balls to the front of the truck…..poor planning on my part, but he was into it!
She has a Mets shirt on under there, but insisted on Stingrays over it (hockey).
These two are best friends. Let’s see how long this lasts!
It took 506 tries to get them all smiling, and Bill looks like he was over it at that point! Still!!!
This is how mesmerized Liam was when the Mets took the field! I freaking love this kid!!!
Second to the last row from the top….but it was still fun! Look at the arch in the background! (No, I don’t plan to ever go to the top……I’m not a tourist! HA!)
What new thing did you do this week?
What do you do about crowds when your veteran gets nervous?
