Thurday night at the ball park

When Dan got home from work, we were all outside and noticed all of the activity at the ball fields. We decided to get Jonah dressed and head over. I had a really cute outfit for him to wear but then remembered just how dirty the ball fields are and scratched that idea. (I think Dan is appreciative anytime I go with casual versus cute!) We got ready to go (including sunglasses for Jonah) and then he got very upset because we weren't taking Elmo. That sadness went away as soon as the door opened and he realized we were going "OW-SITE!" (That is outside for those of you who don't speak his language!)

We opted not to take the stroller or wagon so he could run and play. (That might have been a mistake!!!)
We walked to the far end of the ball fields to the Tball field. We figured those kids would be the most entertaining. He stood at the fence and was pretty intrigued. It startled him anytime the crowd would yell and cheer.

We made our way around all the fields and saw lots of people. Jonah was most interested in the trash. He found his way to every garbage can and dumpster there. If he saw trash on the ground, he pointed to it and headed towards it. All the while, he was saying "Tash, Tash, Tash!" The kid would be a great "Don't litter" spokesperson. He hates to see trash laying on the ground. Finally, Dan just put him on his shoulders so we could walk without having to stop and pick up trash!!!
We stopped at one of the boys games and spent a little time there. Jonah was intrigued by the rocks and kept bringing them to me. He could not figure out why there were so many on the ground. Had we stayed long enough, he would have picked every single rock up.
He had no idea why people clapped and cheered but anytime they did., he did too. I think he thought everyone was clapping for him. He would turn towards the bleachers and just clap and smile.

I love the next picture. It really captures his questioning personality. I don't think he will ever take anything at face value. He is so inquisitive.
We got home and headed straight for the tub. He was one dirty little boy. After his bath, he had a snack but made the mistake of sharing the first bite with Max. After that, Max would not leave him alone!

You can see the look of unhappiness as Max tries to take his snack from him.

It is nice to live so close to the ball fields and to let him experience the fun nights over there. Maybe next time we can get him a garbage can so he can keep the parks clean while we watch the ball games.

Kevin goes after trash too! It drives me nuts & makes me feel guilty...because I know it's a good thing that he wants to clean up trash, but I just don't want him to touch it!! ;) ha.

Kevin & Jonah would get along great with the trash & the rocks. ;)
