Fan Day at the Diamond

This morning we went to Fan Day at the Diamond.  It was the first day you could buy tickets and they had the stadium open so you could go on the field, and sit in the dugout. 

There were games in the outfield and the girls ran around for a while and we pitched the wiffle ball to them, they both hit it quite a few times!

There was a hamburger eating contest but it was even too much for Tung.  There were 3 rounds the first 2 you had to eat a double patty hamburger, with 2 mozzarella sticks, bacon and cheese on it with a serving of curly fries.  Round 3 was a hot dog topped with chili and cheese sitting on 2 fried pickles and curly fries.  About 5 people attempted it, one guy was eating so slow we think he just wanted lunch.

Payton is always so small she can never bounce in the bouncy houses, but today anyone could bounce or joust, so Payton had a blast.  Reagan didn't want to bounce.

We saw Nutzy and had our picture taken with him, neither one wanted to see Nutzy's new friend Zinger the Acorn, he was a short chubby blow up character.

We got to try corn dogs and dorito nachos for free and Payton and I sat in the little arena race car. Joe Gibbs actually raced this car himself, it was all beat up in the front from where he wrecked it. It was fun to sit inside but I couldn't have driven it because my legs were too short, I couldn't reach the gas and brake.

Can you find me in this picture?

Reagan had fun sitting on the warning track scooping up the gravel.

It was very windy but not cold at all, we had a lot of fun.
