Take Us Out to the Ball Game!

by Valerie Barker


Some of Dad's coworkers formed a softball team and played against other teams from around the company. Dad decided to go to one of their last games and he invited Mom, Kat and me to come too. I was very excited because I had never been to a ballgame before.

When we first got to the park, we went for a 20 minute walk. For some reason, Mom and Dad think that going for walks helps us sit still. When we first got to the bleachers, I was afraid to get on them and just stayed on the ground.

Kat and I were both pretty tired after our walk.

Then Dad's coworkers took to the field. Kat was ready to be a cheerleader and was paying close attention to the game so she could woo at just the right time.

After a while, I decided that the bleachers weren't very scary and climbed up next to Dad for a better view. There's nothing more entertaining than a bunch of engineers trying to play sports.

Eventually, Kat got bored with the game (you know how girls are) and decided that the bleachers would make for a good jungle gym.

Mom finally got Kat to sit down at the very top of the bleachers.

It was a pretty fun game. There were also some chickens in the bushes near the car that were very interesting. I hope we get to go to another ballgame soon.
