Take me out to the ballgame!

Last night, we took the kids to their first baseball game.  Ella didn't quite understand why she couldn't play.  I explained that the players were Daddy-sized, and that it was a game for them to play and us to watch.  She asked about their outfits {that's my girl}, and I told her about their uniforms, hats, and sometimes helmets, and that they catch the ball in a mitts they wear to protect their hands. 

A couple of minutes later, this is what I walked in on. 

"This is my baseball helmet, Mom."  Then she ran upstairs and grabbed two mittens and said, "These are my baseball-catching mitts, Mom."  I love that child!  Jack was just watching.

Ella looked at him, concerned, and said, "Jack needs this helmet more than me because he's a baby." 

He liked it.  He looks like a cone head, but a cute cone head, don't you think?  He was ready to play ball.

At the game, Ella decided she was okay with not playing baseball once she realized there was a sand box to play in with her friends {and may I say, every ballpark should have a large sandbox for kiddie entertainment.  It was a lifesaver}.

As for Jack, well, he opted to play it cool and traded in his helmet for some shades.  The chicks dig it.
