first Astros game

We took Hailey to her first Astros game on the 25th. It was Tyson's second time. We had great seats on the third base line. Lots of foul balls came our way in the whole 3 innings that we sat in our seats (took a break to go to the playground and never made it back... :-)

This time the Astros did much better than the first game we saw this season... I think they won 10-3 or 10-4.

We attempted a few family pics. This is the best one we got. Tyson looks just huge to me in this pic.

We took the kids to the play area, which has a very huge, cool playground. At first, Tyson and I went while Steve and Hailey got a snack. I had a minor heart attack because there were at least 100 people in and around the playground, and as soon as your kid goes up the first steps you can't see them anymore because of all the tunnels they crawl through. I was freaking out for awhile there because the only way down is a HUGE slide, which usually freaks Tyson out. Plus I had NO idea where he was within the playground. Sure enough, after about 5 or 10 minutes he came down the slide with one of the girls working there - she said he was sitting at the top of the slide and was nervous to go down. I guess I was overreacting because when Steve came back, he wasn't worried at all.

After the playground, Tyson raced against the baseball player (shown in the video above). He really loved that.

Steve and I agreed that it was fun taking the kiddos to the game, but definitely more relaxing to go without them. Hopefully Tyson will remember it for awhile!
