Take me out to the ball game

On Saturday we went to the Rice Owls baseball game.  Drew and I like ball sports and I especially love college sports.  Just like in the fall when we went to the TCU-WVU football game, we wanted to share another fun experience with the kids on a college campus.  The boys like baseball and watching games at small parks is fun.  We knew the girls would tolerate the game so Ashlynn came along as well. 

Rice is a good team so knew we would see a good game.  What we didn't expect was a home run in the 8th to tie the game and 11 innings of great baseball.  The ending to the game could not have been better....a 2 run walk-off homer and a victory for Rice.  It was very exciting.

Winning home run celebration at home plate!
There was supposed to be an Easter egg hunt at the end of the game.  Because the game went into extra innings the hunt was held right after the 9th inning.  The kids loved this extra special part of the day.  The "hill" behind the outfield wall in the above picture provided the kids with room to play during the 10th and 11th innings.

There were two very cute statues outside the stadium that were perfect for picture taking.  Of course the sun was horrible and the pictures are washed out, but still cute.

Samuel has already told us that he is ready to go to another game.  I hope we can!
