Yesterday was Alicia's birthday. She had to work during the day, but was able to come home a little early. Parker and I had gone out earlier in the day to get some cupcakes to celebrate. Mmmmmm.....cupcakes.........

To celebrate, we went out to dinner and the to an Indians game. Alicia and I had not been in several years and Parker had never been, so we figured it would be an adventure. We opted for lawn seats because we figured P would need room to roam. She loved looking over the fence at the game.

More importantly, Parker loved the ice cream we bought her. Baseball is a long game and Parker did very well considering the game went well past her bedtime.

She did start to get a little crazy a couple hours in. She just kept running around making super silly faces and just climbing all over us - I believe in an effort to stay awake.

Then, she wanted to take (unflattering) pictures of us. This was the best shot. Might have been cute it I had had something supporting my head and wasn't making a goober face!

Parker held on for a LONG time. The game ended around 10:00, but there were fireworks afterward so we hung around for a little bit longer. Parker had been looking forward to it all night. Clearly, she was getting quite tired.
I think she enjoyed the fireworks, but they were quite close and quite loud, so it was a little much after awhile. The minute it was over, Parker asked to be picked up and was practically passed out by the time we got to the car.
It was a really good night. I love my family so much and enjoyed every minute of this evening. I hope that we are able to have many more nights like this one.
