Lets Go Tigers!

On Saturday after our weekly soccer game, we took the kids and met up with Grandma and Grandpa Huddas,Uncle Ed, Clay, Drew, Aunt Becca, and Uncle John at our Church for a tailgate party and Tigers game outing. After eating and playing for a while, we boarded the busses and headed down to the old Ballpark. I think the kids enjoyed the bus ride as much as the baseball game.

Seamus latched on to Uncle Ed, and got to play Angry Birds and take pictures the entire way to the game. Helena and Katie soon followed suit and got Mary and I to let them play games on our phones as well. The kids made it through about 4 innings before they needed to get up and move. First we went on the Tiger Carousel. Seamus and Helena loved it, but Katie had had enough of it by about halfway through and tried to climb off her tiger.

After that we all went to the Ferris Wheel, but Katie already had enough excitement from the carousel, so Seamus, Helena and I went on it on our own. They loved it and thought it was funny that we were riding in giant baseballs.

After the rides, the girls got to pick out Tigers hats to wear (Seamus and Mary bought one at Meijer earlier so no on missed out). Both of them wanted pink hats with sparkles on it, they are such girls. After all that it was somehow only the bottom of the 6th inning, and the kids did something strange. The actually watched some of the baseball game. Afterwards we rode the bus back and had a pizza dinner. By the time we got home it was well past bedtime. It was a long day, but everyone had fun and we got to see a victory. Go Tigers!
