California Pictures - Part 5 - Baseball

Last year we decided to go to the Dodgers/Padres game in Los Angeles. This year we found out they were playing again while we were in town... this time at Petco Park in San Diego. So we decided to get tickets... I was excited because we'd get to go to the Padres stadium and Frank was hoping that the Dodgers would redeem themselves after losing last year's game. ;)

Before the game, we were able to meet up with some friends who actually live in Central California but just so happened to be in San Diego on vacation and were also going to the game! We decided to grab some lunch beforehand... and I didn't even hold it against them that they're Dodger's fans! haha

Seriously though, we were so excited to meet up with Natali and her husband Brandon... we have been bloggy/Facebook friends for several years now and they just so happen to have a 6 year old little boy named Keegan! :) The boys were SO excited to meet each other and hit it off right away. They have very similar personalities so it was fun to watch them together. :)

 Keegan and Keeghan :)

All the kids before going to the game

Beautiful girls! :)

Dodger's Fans

This year he got the RIGHT foam finger ;) 

He really was excited about this monkey... despite not smiling ;) 

Kennedy made friends with the people sitting behind us and they bought the kids cotton candy! :) 

 He loved hanging out with Nonnie! 

 Proof that LA and San Diego fans CAN get along. ;) 

 Family pic after the game... 

And just in case you're wondering... the Padres lost this year. Badly. I guess we'll have to go to the game again next year so they can get their revenge. ;)

Now now now, what about the Angels? They're also a So Cal team! And, might I add, perfect for any of the kids in your family who can't choose between mom and dad's team, since they're located right in the middle of the Padres and Dodgers? ;)

I love baseball! Haven't been to a game in a long time again!
Know that I'm still here praying for your!
2 Samuel 22:29-33 For thou art my lamp, O LORD: and the LORD will lighten my darkness. For by thee I have run through a troop: by my God have I leaped over a wall. As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all them that trust in him. For who is God, save the LORD? and who is a rock, save our God? God is my strength and power: and he maketh my way perfect.
