A couple of weeks ago, Maren offered us some extra tickets to the Bees Baseball game. They had something like 20 to give away through her husbands' work. I didn't think I would go because the last game was pretty hot and uncomfortable, and since I'm not feeling my best, I thought I better sit this one out and let Scott and the kids go. But later that day, Maren called me back and said, 'just thought you might want to know that they're box seats so we'll be indoors and there will be food. Are you sure you still can't go?' I've never sat in box seats before, and my curiosity won out and I decided to go. And I'm so glad I did. What a cool experience! We took elevators up to the top and found our air conditioned room with couches and arm chairs and stools with backs for those who wanted to watch the game from the window. The food was already out and on hot burners. They offered all the makings for tacos, sandwiches and hot dogs, plus they had a fruit tray, chips, popcorn, and drinks. After the fifth inning they brought different kinds of ice cream and toppings for ice cream sundays. You could eat all you want and everything had already been paid for. Just outside our box window, you could go out and watch the game from regular stadium seats. They also had a tv inside just in case you didn't want to watch the game I guess. The Bee mascot came in our room and took pictures with the kids. The big kids thought this was pretty fun, but Annabelle and the other little ones were not amused. We all had a great time! Thanks Brian and Maren for inviting us!
