Imagine her surprise when Serene showed up on Sarah's birthday along with my two darling grand daughters. She was very surprised. We've been asking her for a while what she wanted to do on her birthday and then one day out of the blue she told us she wanted to go to a Padre's game.
I was quite surprised since that isn't something Sarah has been in to but it is always fun to go to a baseball game. I've never watched one on TV but there is a special air just being in the stadium that makes it fun. Of course being the cheap skates that we are we were in the nose bleed seats but that is just as fun.
We had quite a surprise when some famous Padres player that I've never heard of before showed up. I would have never known he was someone famous if the people around us didn't say something. Since it was Sarah's birthday we figures she should get her picture with him and if you know Sarah you know is is scared of nothing. She got more than a picture, he whipped a baseball out of his pocket and signed it for her. I don't remember the guys name but he was a Jones. It might have been Randy Jones.
She also got a picture with the Padre dude. At least I knew who that guy was. When Serene learned we were going to a Padres game she was a bit worried that her girls might not make it through the night. I assured her that if the girls got fussy I would take them for a walk. Some where around the seventh inning stretch Hayley and I went for a walk. Once she was able to scoot around on her own four limbs she was quite interested in the game.
Speaking of scooting around, you really need to see how Hayley crawls. I've never seen anything like it before. I guess one day she was wanting to carry a toy with her but she couldn't crawl and carry a toy at the same time. She finally figured out how to do it. Watch the video at the end of this posting to see how she does it. I didn't get a shot of her going fast but trust me, she can really scoot along. My new name for her is "Scooter".
It was a late but very fun evening. I'm really glad that Serene made the effort to get to Sarah's birthday dinner (which was spagetti in case you were wondering. Spagetti is Sarah's favorite food). It really made her day but it also made my day as well. I'm always glad to see my kids. That includes grand kids and in-laws.
