Alex and Evan's First Detroit Tigers Game - May 20, 2015
Wednesday night we were lucky enough to take Alex and Evan to their first sporting event. A Detroit Tigers Game! Eric and I both love baseball and were thinking about taking the boys to a game this summer, but then Eric's company decided to have a family night out so we took advantage!
To no surprise, neither were disappointed, just a bit restless. We decided to carry Alex because we were unsure if we could park his stroller anywhere safe without risking it being stolen. There was no way I was chancing that. It was a bit rough because he is pushing 35lbs, but we managed.
We sat for the first 2 innings and then I took Evan for a walk around the stadium because he was restless. We stopped and got the boys first game certificates at guest services which I thought was a pretty cool thing for them to have. I would have never known about this if one of the workers didn't tell me. Then two "pretty girls" stopped Evan and offered him some Detroit Tiger tattoos and posters - which he took and then proceeded to chat it up with them. When we walked away he told me we needed to find more girls and that there were a lot of them there at the stadium. I asked pretty girls right - and he said "yeah".
We met up with Alex and Eric at the Carousel and they went for a ride. Evan typically sits on the bench, but we convinced him to ride on one of the Tigers! They loved it of course. Next up was the Baseball Ferris Wheel! I wasn't sure if Eric was going to be OK - LOL. I think we have decided against him riding the one at Navy Pier in Chicago now!
Finally we grabbed a bag of popcorn and watch a few more innings. We managed to end up on the jumbo tron belting out Bon Jovi Living on a Prayer and everytime the crowd clapped and yelled, Alex got super excited. I think he thought they were clapping for him! We left at the top of the eighth inning because it was getting late but the Tigers went on to win the game 5-2. As we were walking out, Evan said "I love this place" which made Eric and I happy because we love it too and we are excited to take them to their next game.
