First Mariner's Game

Last night we took the boys to their first ever baseball game. Micah won tickets through work since Alaska Airlines is one of the sponsors for the Mariners they had a special Alaska employee night. Along with the tickets we got food vouchers too.
Since we were going with the boys we decided to get to Safeco early so that we could also leave early. It was a beautiful evening, the sun was shining and it was in the high 50s, so not too cold. We found some cheap parking and walked a few blocks to the stadium. Poor Micah had to carry both boys part of the way.
When we first got in the stadium we walked down close to the field so Andrew could see the baseball players.
Then we looked around at some of the food vendors to see what our options were for dinner. We also headed over to the kids play area. Andrew loved climbing up in the tunnels. He also liked going in the lookout areas and watching the train go by.

We only ended up sitting in our seats for the pre-game stuff while we ate dinner (Andrew and I shared a cheeseburger from Kidd Valley and Micah had a BBQ brisket sandwich; both were really good) and we also stayed in our seats for the first inning. By then it was time for Josiah to eat and get ready for bed so we went down to the first level to do that.
Before we left we used the rest of our food vouchers to get some chocolate dipped strawberries. So good! I love how both Andrew and Josiah are going for the shiskaberries in this picture. But of course Josiah could not have any.
We ended up having a wonderful time and look forward to taking them again sometime.
