91.Petco Park

Last week Melissa and I had the chance to head out to Southern California to celebrate 10 years of marriage.  We had a great time!  Our second night in town we went to Petco Park.

There really isn't a really pretty entrance to the park. It is in the middle of downtown though which made for a nice atmosphere making our way to the park.

Check out the right field area. 

There is a sandbox for the kids to play in.  Also, those seats have tons of leg room.  The one setback is that you have a horrible view for the game.  Some of those seats don't even have a view of the infield!  Who designed that and thought it was a good idea?

You can get to field level though.  It was a pretty cool view from there.

Here is where our first seats were:

They were nice, but we had people on both sides of us.  So we moved to the outfield below the scoreboard.

Bad team, but a fun night!

Plus, another ball to add to the display!

14. Catch Fireflies

We were finally able to make it out to catch fireflies in the yard.  I don't know what happened last year.  I didn't see any. I'm glad they were out because the kids had a really good time catching them.

We started the night off with some ice cream.

Maddie loved it!  She did awesome.  That girl loves bugs and nature.  It was so fun to see her run around in the yard excitedly tracking them down.

Charlie walked around the yard in this pose for most of the time.  We tried to teach him that you could just let the bugs land on your hand if you moved your hand onto them as they are flying.  If you are watching from afar, he looked pretty silly.

Quick stop for a family shot:

Boy did the grass need mowed!

Releasing our catch:

They definitely had a good time.

55 goals down!
