working on the list part two

Fresno Grizzlies Triple A Baseball Team

It was on our summer fun list.
They had a "what a deal wednesday" special.
$20 for two tickets plus two ticket admission to maxx's golf, storyland, and john's incredible pizza.
talk about a deal.

we took the bait.
perfect night for some baseball.

Snagging our tickets at 'will call' - 
Macy wearing orange for one of the few times in her life.

Parker (Grizzlies mascot) getting the crowd warmed up...Zach met Parker for the
first time tonight and referred to him as 'da bear' the rest of the night.

The stadium was finished in 2002 - special memories for me as I worked for 
the Grizzlies while in college up until the time the new stadium was finished. 

Zach wore a perm-a-grin all night at his first game!

Macy getting her eat on with a Grizzlies Dog...
fine detail on the 'other end' of the dog as Zach snagged a few bites.

The minute Joni handed me the food, I told her a 
foul ball would be headed our way...sure enough, 'heads up!'

After the first foul ball, Zach keep his hands up on his head for most of the game.

Joni and Macy posing for a picture IN BETWEEN 
innings just to make sure no foul balls were heading our way.

Hey kids, we just got 2 foul balls in 3 innings. 

I'm pretty sure I asked them to pose nicely for the camera, 
but I think Zach heard, "Squeeze the life out of the ball and smash 
it against your face!" while Macy heard, "Hold that ball up and act like a statue!"

Smile for the camera Macy, I just tore a groin muscle hurdling 4 rows of chairs to get this baseball.

Dippin dots to complete the evening...Macy in the zone!

Zach getting his fill of Dippin' Dots as well. Best conversation of the night:

                       Dippin Dots Gal: Hi, how old are you?
                       Zach: Two!  
                       Dippin Dots Gal: What's your name?
                       Zach: Dodgers!
                       Dippin Dots Gal: Hector?
                       Steve: No, his name is Zach. He just loves to say Dodgers.
                       Dippin Dots Gal: Oh, good. He doesn't look like a Hector.

2nd best conversation of the night:

                      Macy: Have you ever heard the story about the goose who laid the golden egg?
                      Joni: No.
                      Macy: The Golden One (laughing hysterically)...

                  ***Macy was inspired by the 'Golden One' sign at the game when she made her joke.***
