Blue skies and sugar highs...

The Lane's headed to the Cards game, and the girls were so excited!  It was a little sad when we all were standing in the living room and Francesca says (pointing to Dan, Alyssa and I), "... you have a baseball shirt, and you do, and you do...." then she pauses and thinks really hard....  "where is MY baseball shirt!!????"  poor girl!  She didn't know that Dan and I had already talked and agreed we HAD to buy her one when we got down to the stadium.  Luckily she was in a good mood and understood we were going to get her one when we got there. Yay for us!

We rode the metro link to the game, the girls were super excited about that too.

Alyssa went to a game with a friend last season and signed up for the Kids Club.  She had all kids of fun stuff, including these tattooed arm sleeves.  Francesca thought she was so cool, just like her big sis.

It was the perfect day to be outside and go to the game.  The heat/humidity wave had broken, there was a nice breeze and you didn't start sweating as soon as your foot stepped out of the shower.

Alyssa's face cracks me up here - I have no idea what she was doing/thinking.  hahaha

We waited just long enough for Francesca to start asking where the cho-cho was and when would it be there, and why, why, WHY!

Finally, the cho-cho came :)

We were lucky enough to grab a seat!  Francesca thought going through the tunnels was the.neatest.thing.ever.  If you totalled up the amount of time she was NOT talking.... it would maybe have equaled... 2 minutes.

And we have arrived...!

I was so sad that I didn't get a picture of how excited Francesca was when she finally got her baseball shirt.  While I was paying for it, she was holding it out in front of her by the shoulders of the sleeves, dancing and twirling with it up against her.  Like she was Cinderella, but with a Cardinals Shirt!

Before we went to our seats, we just walked around showing the girls some things.

We ran into Fredbird, who always knows how to play a joke.

Francesca would then NOT take her eyes off of him, she was like "oh no you didn't just do that to my sisters hair!"  Hey, at least she is protective of her older sister!
My family!

We went to our seats and had a pretty good view.

The girls were surprisingly both really into the game.  Both wanted to know what was going on and who was doing what, and why! lol.

There was ice cream...

And cotton candy... not my choice, or course :)

Francesca caught me trying to sneak some pictures of her :)  She was starting to get a little sleepy.

And what game would be complete with out the WHOLE stadium doing the wave.  It was pretty cool.

It was a pretty good night.... <3
