Mother's Day 2019

I had a wonderful Mother's Day at the Cardinal's baseball game spent with my 3 favorite people!

The Affton Athletic Association, who Jackson and Avery play baseball for, had their day at the Cardinal's Game on Mother's Day this year. The Cardinal's were giving away free cross body Cardinals bags, which was awesome!! We also got to walk the field before the game and then after the game, the kids were able to run the bases! Our lunch was also included! The only thing that would have made the day better is if the Cardinals would have won! They came close, but lost it in the end. They did hit 2 home runs so that was exciting! We went with 2 other families from Jackson's school and baseball team, so that made it even more fun! We all had a great time!!

All the teams at Affton Athletic Association have names that coincide with a Major League Baseball team. Jackson and Avery are in different age groups and play on different teams, but it just so happens that both of them are on teams named the Royals. Much to Jake's happiness, since he's originally from Kansas City and is very much a Kansas City Royals fan.

As you walk around the field, at one point there is a camera and you can see yourself on the big screen!

Fredbird's Mom was at the game with him for Mother's Day. It was too cute!!

Avery did get a little bored and restless towards the middle of the game, but my phone sufficed for a while.

This was the first Cardinals game that Jackson went to that he really started to get into the game. He had a great time and already wants to go to another game soon.

Every adult got a cross-body bag, not just the mom's. So the dad's gave theirs to their girls. :-) They were very excited!

Each kiddo got a certificate for running around the bases.

After the game, we went home and I played a round of basketball and an inning of kickball with Jackson and then Jake put the kids to bed for me that night, which was great. It was a great day and I feel so very blessed and grateful to be the mommy of 2 amazing kiddos that I love so much!
