Family Fun Days: Birthday Bash

Jack 18 months 033Last Thursday was my birthday.  We took a family excursion to the Columbus Clippers game that evening.  It was Jack’s first Clippers Game our first time watching a game in the new Huntington Park.  We had a great time.  We arrived a little late due to work and standing room only were the only tickets available.  While waiting in line the person in front of us gave us one of their tickets so we only had to purchase one.  When we made it in the gate we saw there were many empty seats available so we didn’t have to stand after all.  I don’t think we would have made it long if we had to stand with a squirmy 18 month old. Jack 18 months 028

The sun was in our eyes for the first part of the game but it quickly fell behind the stands.  It was great to be outside with an enthusiastic crowd.  The announcer said Huntington Park was voted this year’s best all-around ballpark.  It really was a great ballpark! It was easy to get around, plenty of options for concessions, affordable tickets, parking was easy to find, great field and lights, located right in the heart of arena district downtown.  We brought Chex Mix to snack on and organic Oatio’s for Jack.  We also had a soft serve ice cream cone.  It was a great game and the Clippers were winning when we left half way through the eighth inning.  It was around 10pm and Jack had reached his limit.  On our way out Jack checked out the life size wobble head mascots, Louseal and Krash.  We also took some photos opts as we left.  Check them out below!

Now I’m going to have to start thinking of an idea for Greg’s 30th coming in February 2010 (I know, I have time).  If you have any ideas send them my way!
