We were given the opportunity to do some fun things with the boys over the last couple of days and decided to take advantage of it! We "won" a sports package at a silent auction (which I hope to blog about soon) which included tickets to a Barnstormer game. Just incase you've never heard of the Iowa Barnstormers it is an arena football team. We had a fun time! The first half was exciting and a lot of fun to watch. However, the second half the opposing team came out fired up and smoked us. The final score was 84 - 48. Here are a couple of pictures of that night.
This was the view from our seats!
The other event we attended was an Iowa cubs game. My parents had purchased Knothole Gang memberships for all the grand kids at Christmas. With this membership included tickets to several cubs games, t-shirt, ice cream and free drinks. There are a couple of other perks like clinics, autograph sessions and batting practice at select games. Yesterday was the first chance we had to attend one of those games. We invited my parents to go along too. It ended up being a very good game. They were only going to play seven innings since it was a double header but at the end of the seventh it was tied 2-2. So we got to the eighth inning the other team scored two runs making it 4-2 with the Cubs having a chance to catch up or win. We scored two runs tying up the game. With two outs two people on base the player at bat hit a home run making the score 4-7. The Cubs won! It was a pretty late night (after 10 pm) but I'm so glad we stayed til the end. The boys even got on the jumbo screen! Fun was had by all! Here are a couple of pictures from that night.
