We had such a fun weekend this weekend! Friday was my birthday, and Drew surprised me with tickets to the Razorback baseball game! We ate dinner at a local mexican restaurant (B ate a WHOLE child's plate-- it's getting more expensive to go out to eat these days!) and then headed to the game. It was B's first real Razorback experience, and he loved it. Well, love is a strong word, but I know he enjoyed all of the people watching. Here's B with Ribby the Razorback.
He wasn't too sure about Ribby. He wasn't scared of him, but a bit perplexed at this larger than life Hog standing there waving at him. He touched his nose, and then smiled.
Before the game started he kept pointing down to the field. It was SO cute!
Drew was trying to get him to call the Hogs (he'll do it for us every now and again), but clearly he wasn't all that interested.
OK, I know I cut Drew's face off in this picture, but i just had to post it. Isn't he SO cute with his spiky/mohawk hair and Hog uniform?

Brayden would NOT smile, so this was the best we could do.
I had walked down closer to the field to show B all of the players and umpires. Ribby came up behind us and started waving at Brayden. He just sat there and stared. It was pretty comical.
Doesn't he look so enthralled?! Ha! His attention span quickly diminished after the game started.
Just some pics of the game festivities
I love this picture, even though it focused on the nets. I LOVE baseball!
"How long to baseball games last Mommy?" (this was taken during the 2nd inning!)
"I am ready to go night-night! Bring me HOME!"
Saturday Drew and I had a wedding to attend so some dear friends watched Brayden while we attended the wedding. After the wedding we made a date of it and went out to eat and then finished the night off with Cold Stone. I sadly took no pictures, but it was SO nice to be able to get out with Drew (all dressed up I might add) and have some adult conversation that had nothing to do with poopy diapers and formula!
Today after church we went to a friends house for lunch. Brayden had a grand time romping around with our friends 15 month old little boy. They were both into EVERYTHING. Partners in crime!
We are looking forward to a warm week with clear skies! Be on the lookout for lots of pictures from the park :) Have a great week!
