Opening Day '13 - Here WE go!

Although it doesn't quite feel like it should be here, it's officially underway and in full swing.  Baseball season is back and the Birds are ready to play!

Opening Day was different for us this year, but different in a good way!  Jim and I decided to get a suite this year, splitting it with one of his teammates families.  Having sat in the stands during Spring Training and realizing how tricky it would be to go to games this year, we thought it might make our lives a bit easier to have the suite for each game.  It gives the kids free roam in a safe space, a place to hold toys and store our own food for games, and a chance for our family to see a game together, all in one area.

Opening Series started off in a BIG way!  The kids and I were able to share Opening Day with tons of family.  My parents, sisters, bro-in-law, niece, nephew, aunt and uncle, and lots of cousins! The suite was full ... and that's exactly what we were hoping for. :)

Love these two.  What sweethearts!

Abby was ready to cheer her Daddy on from the beginning.  She is starting to "get" what Daddy does and is so happy when he's on the field!  The loud noises are still a problem ... poor girl plugged her ears most of the time she spent outside our suite.  Thank goodness she could get relief whenever she wanted to and could head back inside.  Levi was a trooper ... crawled around, played with his toys, ate everything in sight, and took a snooze in his stroller.  

Emily and Justin were awesome cousins as always and were big helpers for me.  Thanks for entertaining the littles - they LOVE you guys.

Like I said before, it doesn't feel like it should be here.  But I'm excited to see where this season takes us.  I'm excited to get to more games this year.  I'm excited to share these moments with family. 

Let's go Orioles! Here WE go! :)
