Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others. Philippians 2:3-4

Baseball and sunburn

Hey everybody! How are you today? We all have varying degrees of sunburn around here. Mostly a bit on the back of the necks as we put sunblock on our faces. We went to a Milwaukee Brewers game with my youngest brother Jonathan, his treat. I am not a sports kind of girl. I don't mind attending a game once in a while. The three teens loved it. They enjoy whatever adventures Uncle Jon dishes up, since he is the one with the money! The seats we had yesterday cost  $110 a piece! Can you believe it?!? I still can't! Sorry, we just don't live that way. Now of course Uncle Jon had to give them the tailgate experience as well. Well not the "full" experience, as Brian and I do not drink and my kids certainly don't! But he did grill up some brats. We enjoyed a full lunch with all the goodies that I brought along as well. And we did win, 6-5 over the San Diego Padres.

That was actually my first tailgate "party", which cracked my brother up. We lead quite different lives. ;) Have you guys tailgated? Do you do that in your town? Do you guys eat brats? Do you know what a brat is? ;)

Hope you guys are getting a little fun in the sun in. I haven't stitched all weekend. I will today. Thanks for your sweet comments, I love them! You are wonderful friends, thanks.♥

Looking forward to your answers to my questions from up above,
Vickie

It sounds like a fun experience for the kids! I have to admit, I'm not big into sports games, either. I can think of other things I'd rather be doing, but I have gone as I don't want to be a party pooper--and it is kind of fun. I've also tailgated. I'm not a big drinker, definitely not a beer drinker, so that whole thing kind of escapes me, too, but the atmosphere of it is fun. I think it'd be a fun thing to do with a bunch of friends. Brats--I can't bring myself to eat one. I'm not a fan of pork products or red meat and am super particular even about the type of hot dogs I will eat--and those are only in the US. Reading through this comment makes me realize that maybe I am just a teensy bit as peculiar as my DH says I am. ROFLOL

Hi Vicki, I haven't gone to a baseball game in quite awhile. We are about 1 1/2 hours from the Kansas City Royals. Yes, we have tail gated. Sometimes we tail gate at college football games or have when the kids were playing in a tournament. I have ate brats as a matter a fact had one Sunday at the horse show watching my grandsons ride. Have a great week. Your Missouri Friend

Haven't tailgated and we don't go to too many baseball games outside of the ones my boys play just for that reason. Tickets for a family of five, parking and food - ugh! We do love brats though!
