Kaylee's first ball game

We decided that it being Labor Day weekend, we needed to give Kaylee some culture. Or maybe we just wanted to get out of the house. Either way, despite some ominous looking clouds, we ended up at Hi Corbett Field for what is probably the final game in the Tucson Toros' debut season.

It was Kaylee's first trip to the ball field (and our first minor league game) and while she seemed to enjoy it, I predicted that we'd be heading home after the third inning because she'd be bored.



The kid thought it was pretty cool, what with all the popcorn and the stomping and the clapping and the music. Oh - and Tuffy. He's the Toros' mascot and he gives some of the best highfives ever.

So one man on, two outs in the bottom of the third and Kaylee is going strong. She's waving my keys, yelling "AW BUMMER" when the bail sails over the center fielder's head and shaking her groove thing to a mix of the Jackson Five and the Beastie Boys.

And then the thunder starts getting closer. And then ...



Twenty seconds later, we were soaked and running for cover. But all in all, not a bad night.

We'll be back next season. And I can't wait to take her to Wrigley ...

I read Kaylee your comments and she says she "doesn't want to catch Grammy's feber."
