BBZ's very first Cardinals Game!

Our friends came in town this week for the Cubs/Cards series. This tradition started a few years ago and hasn't happened every year, but N tries to schedule it with our friend, Cory who comes uin town from wherever he is living at the time. For a while it was Denver, now he is living in New Mexico. This was some of us in 2006...
This was 2007...

And here we are in 2009...

It was a bit different this year for many reasons. We got seats this year which was a first...we usually got standing room only tickets, which I actually prefer. We couldn't talk to each other as much as when we are all standing in a group. Plus we didn't get the cool group picture like we have the last few years. The other difference is that we have a baby this year! This was his first game and what an exciting one it was! Just as we sat down, Pujhols hit a home run that knocked out the "I" in the Big Mac Land sign! The whole place went wild and we saw firwworks and everything! BBZ was a little scared by the loudness, but otherwise he did great considering the game started at the time he is usually in bed. Check out the pics!

A few tears as he fought a nap on the way to the stadium

He needed some comfort from his thumb when we first got there

He warmed up and seemed to have a great time!

Go Cards!!!


  1. Such cute photos! Love the family one at the end.

  2. Yay!! BBZ's first cardinal game! That is so much fun! He looks so adorable in his cardinal gear too:)

  3. I have to agree, standing room only is the way to go. It's hard to talk to everyone and we don't get to see all those people as often as we like. Next time we will know. I had so much fun though. Thanks to N for getting everything organized too. GO CARDS!
