go birds!

We've been to two Cardinals games this summer which is pretty good for us...Scott and I both prefer watching the game from the comfort of our own home, but if we happen upon really good seats, we'll make an exception :) We had four tickets for the first game. Carter decided he did not want to go, but Cate did, so we bought her a standing-room-only cheap ticket and thankfully the seats next to us were open and she didn't have to sit on my lap. We chose to eat at The Precinct Bar & Grill before the game and take their free shuttle to the game...worked out great!

"I'd rather be #1 than #2".  Um, that's a 'peace sign' Cate

During the 7th inning, Cate spotted Fredbird by the field and jumped out of her seat to run down and give him a hug.  She then dragged him back up to our seats to have him sign a baseball for Brady.  Along the way, she pulled him into a handrail and he fell to the ground.  She thought it was hilarious!

He signed a ball for Brady and then the camera man showed up along with the Cardinal Girls and presented her with a hot Papa John's pizza and coupons for free pizza for everyone in our row!

Jumbo-tron debut!

 My phone immediately blew up with texts from people who saw Cate on the jumbo-tron and when we left the stadium, people at Ballpark Village waved and mentioned seeing her on the big screens!  It was too funny! 

 Our 2nd game was a day game last weekend.  Cate opted out of this one, which was a good thing because she probably expects that Fredbird nonsense to happen at every game :)  Carter had to work so I got to tag along again!

 Our seats were awesome and we had access to the air-conditioned Redbird Club (which I reealllly appreciated). 
Brady and I had build-your-own nachos.  Delish!

Back-to-back homeruns meant lots of fireworks that we couldn't see because it was a sunny day game
Hanging out in the A/C!

 Unfortunately, the Cardinals lost both games we attended, but what's important is that we had a good time!
