Take me out to the ball game

Sunday we had plans to just lay around the house and take it easy, we were a little blue that we were not on a jet plane to Florida, but the weather had other plans for us. However we got re scheduled and we are looking forward to blue water, sand and relaxation next week!
So as we were laying around my phone went off and I got a text asking if anyone was interested in some gratis baseball tickets compliments of The Butch Watterson Realty Group. Jack was taking a nap and Kevin was about half away I made the call to accept the offer and score some family fun once the boys woke up.

I can't tell you enough wonderful things about Constellation Field here in Sugar Land, the best way to sum it up is... we had a BALL!

 We put a plan in place, we knew there was a splash pad and huge play area for the kids, but we wanted to watch a little bit of the game first. Jack is a known wiggle worm, but he did really good and just kinda bounced between the seats we had. There were so many kids there that you didn't feel like you had to say "sit down" all the time because all the kids were jumping around. Plus having popcorn, hot dogs and candy helps hold the little ones still for a while :)

He actually watched the game for a while and often would say "come on number 19" ...or "hit that ball" .. or "come on man run" ...he had us laughing for sure. 

A little game talk between the boys :)

 The ballpark does a great job of keeping everyone entertained between innings and we got a few innings in  before I actually got antsy and decided we should go check out the rest of the park.

 There is a huge playground for the kids to climb all over and the merry go round is free for little ones. I think over 3 is $1 so nothing crazy and the rest of the play areas are free.

 But make sure you bring your suits because kids can't pass up this fun! Meredith warned us before hand and we were prepared with Jacks swim trunks and towel!
 How can you beat this... have a beer at the bar and watch your kid to your right and the ball game to your left! Daddy heaven!

 We got dressed and we were going to call it a night (how amazing is that sky?!) But Jack actually requested to go back to our seats and watch more of the game :)
 ...and I'm so glad we did, a fly ball came over to our section and a man caught it and gave it to Jackson. The sweetest thing you could ever do for a three year old boy! The man was wearing a UT shirt and we couldn't be more thankful to that longhorn gentleman for making Jacks night that much sweeter!

 If you live in Sugar Land this is a must do! Even if you live in Houston make the drive! While the Astros games are fun, this is certainly much more geared towards families and your kids will thank you!
Thank you to the Butch Watterson Team for allowing us to your season tickets and having a awesome night!
