Today was opening day at the ballpark. The Mariners were playing the Oakland A’s and I thought it would be a good time for Emma and I to check out the game. This was going to be Emma’s first time scalping tickets with her old man so I was not sure how it was going to go. I knew one thing; we had Emma’s cuteness going for us.

There were a couple of things from the get go that were already not in our favor. We got down to the ballpark in the middle of the 3rd inning so parking was tough to find. What do most good Christians and non-Christians do when they can’t find parking? The pray. So Emma and I proceeded to ask the Lord for a spot. We ended up finding one like 5 minutes later about a 1/2-mile away from the park. Then came the fun part. The game was sold out with over 47,000 people in attendance. We asked around for a while and were about to give up when this lady approached us and told us that her friend had won 2 tickets and she wanted to give one to us. Yeehaaa. Now how do two people get into a sold out ball game with only one ticket? You just go in I guess. The ticket checker took Emma’s ticket and told us to enjoy the game and let us in. Thanks ticket checker guy.

The first place we went was to the kids play area. It was pretty packed and you needed a ticket to get in, even though it was free. We didn’t have a ticket because they were all given out when the game started, but some people didn’t show up and so the guy let us in. We played for a while and decided to leave early to go to our seats. On out way out we saw the Mariner Moose in his moose house and we were the last people to be able to see him before he went out into the stands. That was great as Emma got to give him/her a big hug and check to see if he/she had real moose hair or not.

As we were walking up to our nose bleed seats we saw one of 2 home runs in the game where the Mariners won 4-0. We sat there for an inning and a half and then got up during the 7th inning stretch to sing Take Me Out To The Ball Game. As we were singing we saw the Mariner Moose come into our section so I grabbed Emma and we ran down and were able to stand right beside him. We all sang the song and Emma and the Moose proceeded to give each other high fives.

All in all I’d say it was a great day. I love doing things with my little girl, especially when it involves really cool things for free.
