Well, baseball in Pittsburgh to be exact!
My twin toddlers (2 1/4 years-old) just experienced their first live sporting event.
I’d been playing T Ball with Cameron and he was really whacking the balls, so I decided it was time we took the twins to see a baseball game.
The stars aligned…daddy was off work, our friends were available so off we went to the ball park.
With the twins in hand we made our way to the fantastic seats our friends secured for us – right in front of the dug out! Now that’s one way to keep a toddler’s attention…get the seats almost “on” the field so there is no way they can ignore the game 😉
We ate all the good ball park favorites – hot dogs, fries, cotton candy (that’s candy floss to us South Africans) and the oh so yummy pierogies. Yes, according to Pittsburgh.com, here in the ‘burgh we eat 11 times the pierogies of any other city in the nation. Pierogies are normally crescent shaped dough, filled with cheese and potato and then boiled or fried with onion and butter! YUMMMM!
The Pirates vs Cubs game was a lot of fun. Mason and daddy were glued to the game. In fact Mason sat on his daddy’s lap almost the entire game with his new Pirates backpack not moving off his back.
Cameron and his friend E, thought it would be fun to climb over the chairs and back. That was until the big bird or “Parrot” magically appeared!
Although the game was very exciting for us all – what stole the show for the kids, was the Parrot. Especially when he decided to give the kids some one on one Parrot love. Here is the Parrot Mascot Picking up Cameron and showing him off to the crowd.
After that, all Cameron wanted to know was “Where bird?” I think when he is sixteen, that’s going to mean something totally different!! 😉
This was definitely an A + toddler activity!
Go Pirates, Go! Or as the locals say, “Go, Bucs, GO!”
