Take Me Out to the Ballgame

Tonight was the next to the last Avalanche homegame of the season. And next year it will be a whole new team in conjunction with the Boston Red Sox. It was such a beautiful afternoon and we heard they were shooting off fireworks so we jumped in the SUV and headed on over to the stadium. There were over 6,000 in attendance which is something for this team. They were playing the Frederick Keys and had beat them soundly last night.

We enjoyed the ever advancing evening as the sky gradually lost its brightness and melted into various hues of violet and umber.

The game was pretty exciting, tied 2-2 until the 6th inning when the other team had an amazing inning with 7 runs. We just couldnt do anything right after that!
And then it was time for the fireworks.PhotobucketPhotobucket There was a grand finale, and some really great blasts and beautiful displays, but my camera just wouldnt catch them! It was a fun evening, though!

  1. I have never been to an actual real ball game, although I did play soft ball as a girl and the children and I used to go watch their father play fall with the station team. Once the boys were older they got to go to a few Blue Jay's games with their dad and they really enjoyed them!
