For our 4th of July celebration we went to the Mariners game. We got great seats right behind home plate from a guy selling tickets outside the stadium for the price of bleacher seats. Sam was very excited to watch "bay' ball!" and kept repeating "bay' ball" all the way to the stadium and all through the first few innings. Sam was very a very enthusiastic fan for three entire innings cheering and clapping. When he got too antsy after the seventh inning stretch rendition of Take Me Out to The Ballgame, we took him to the playground. It was a fun outing and my boys looked very cute in their matching shirts. ... and the Mariners won! We weren't quite ready to end our festivities after the game was over so we went over to my parent's house for a traditional 4th of July BBQ.This picture is for you Kara. We were lamenting that you weren't around to create a festive dessert, so Keenan decorated his angel food cake appropriately.
We put our own fireworks show on for Sam with sparklers and two fountains complete with a patriotic soundtrack (Grandpa's favorite Lee Greenwood's God Bless the USA). As you can see, he was thoroughly impressed.
