After Kyleigh sat down in her rightful seat, she looked down at the field and exclaimed, "Oh! Baseball!" Apparently Kyleigh had not even noticed the ball game until now. I guess she's totally clueless in terms of sports, just like me.
I had reminded my husband to pack "snacks" in the backpack. What I meant was things like Goldfish that would not melt. But instead, my husband packed Milano's. It was definitely not a good idea to bring chocolaty snacks in 90-degree weather. I hope he learned the lesson now.
Kyleigh was dancing with the game music. She watched a little bit of the game, but that didn't last long. After awhile, Kyleigh got bored watching the game (I don't blame her). She said, "I don't want to watch the game any more." So Daddy got up and left. They had only walked a step or two away and a woman yelled, "Hey you forgot your camera!" Hence she saved my husband (otherwise I would have totally chewed him up).
As they were leaving, they found a gigantic playground. Kyleigh loved climbing in the big play house.
Unfortunately it was almost the end of the ball game, and the ball park was closing down the playground soon after Kyleigh started playing. When it was time for her to leave, she couldn't find a way to get out of the 3-story tall play house, and she was stuck on the top level. Finally she came down a really swirly slide, and she had a lot of fun. Kyleigh was really mad when she had to leave, because she was just starting to have fun.
Daddy took Kyleigh on a walk to calm her down, and tried to find something else to occupy her. They came to the courtyard outside and Daddy distracted her by letting her run around in the courtyard. My husband wanted to take a picture of Kyleigh with the stadium in the background. Kyleigh didn't want Daddy to take the picture, so she kept running away.
Eventually Daddy found a way to trick her into taking her pictures. What happened was that Kyleigh found a light pole with two columns, and stuck her head between the columns for fun. Daddy didn't take the picture the first time she did it. But after he made sure her head could come out with no problem, he pointed to another light pole and said, "Hey, there's another one, you wanna try it?" Of course Kyleigh said, "Yeah!" and stuck her head between them. My husband had the camera ready, and Kyleigh could not get her head out quickly enough to avoid the camera.
When they came home, Kyleigh told me that she had fun, she saw a big bird (the mascot), and Daddy bought her souvenirs. I am glad it worked out.
