Take Me Out to the Ball Game!

Today was the big day. The day we were to celebrate our son turning three. I was so excited for this to happen and then bam it hit me. A killer migraine. I wanted to have a good time so we still headed down to Denver. We left Colorado Springs around 12 and got to the hotel around 3 after picking up our tickets. I checked in and was very pleased with our hotel. It had a fountain in the lobby and was a very nice room for the 33 dollars we spent on it.

We hung out at the hotel until 4 and then we headed off to the game. We got lost and had to use our gps to find the parking and I was miserable. Caffiene was not helping and being lost made it ten times worse. Finally we got to the parking and rode the shuttle to the gates for batting practice. I was ecstatic and so was my son. He got to see the players up close and personal. We had awesome seats and I was very grateful.

Little Ro and I spent most of the game wandering around the park. We had to leave during the seventh inning as a cold front moved in and the kids and I had no coats. I was so glad I did this for my son. He played a game in the interactive zone and people stopped and watched him bat the ball. One of the assistants commented "I am willing to bet we will see him out here in about 20 years. lets hope he is playing for the rockies." I understand my son has a love for the game and I need to nourish it. I will not push too hard but he knows the concept and I will make sure he has access to it always. It was a good night despite the migraine and I look forward to seeing my Rockie's once again.

Ugh, that stinks about the migraine! What luck!! I'm sure Little Ro had a blast, though.

Very, very nice hotel room for $33! You got a smokin' deal!
