Take Me Out to the Ballgame

Last night, my aunt Joy and uncle Joe took me and Jonah to the Rangers game, and it was a blast. Jonah LOVED it! He did so well. Which is more than I can say for the Rangers so far this season. =( But we had such a good time. When we told Jonah to yell, "Go Rangers!", he said it and it came out, "Go raisins!" We laughed at him so much. He also tasted his first cotton candy, which he refers to as "hot pink" for some reason. He's so silly. We left during the bottom of the 7th, but not because of Jonah. He would have stayed there all night. I was so glad he liked it....I thought we'd be taking turns walking him around the stadium, but it never got to that. He understood that he needed to stay in his seat....well, actually in our row of seats. He was much more into the game than I expected, watching to see if the "mans" would hit the ball with their bat. Daddy would be proud. He made some really fun memories, and I loved sharing them with him and, as always, spending time with my wonderful aunt and uncle. We went back to Athens after the game and spent the night at their house. This outing only got planned yesterday morning, so it was a fun, spontaneous trip to make. Jonah was really wired when we left the ballpark. It was 9:30 when we left, and I thought he'd go right to sleep as soon as we got driving. Oh no, he was so wound up and excited, he didn't go to sleep until 10:30. Maybe it had something to do with the cotton candy! He would be really quiet for a long time and then start talking about stuff from the game. You'd hear him sleepily ramble on about the "ballgame." He especially liked the Dot Race, and he understood that he had the blue ticket, so when the blue dot won, he kept saying, "I won! I won!" Guess we've got a little competitive one on our hands!
