Toronto Trip-Day 1

Last Friday we packed up the kids, and the van, and headed out on our last road trip of the summer.  Each year we are trying to see a baseball game at a different stadium.  So far we have been to Cleveland and Detroit, this year Toronto was our destination.  While the kids are young we are sticking to the stadiums close to home.

We arrived in Toronto late Friday afternoon, just in time to hit lots of traffic.  We checked in to our hotel and the kids couldn't get to the pool fast enough.  We had our "Pizza Friday" in our room after the pool fun and the kids went to sleep way too late.  Saturday morning we headed into the city.

Fortunately we had a beautiful weekend for baseball.  

I forgot to take off my sunglasses for the first photo, but then Jonah was being Jonah in the next shot.

We arrived at the park just as the gates were opening (two hours before game time!).  The boys really wanted to try and get some autographs.  

Here they are checking out each others autographed hats, with Levi watching.  It won't be long and he will get in on the action too.

We managed to get all the kids in our seats before the first pitch.  I think we all sat for the first inning and then not again for the entire game.  Jacob could sit for the entire game watching (and commenting on!) every single pitch.  Unfortunately, the other five weren't so interested.

A family photo after the game.  Leah was asleep ;)

Here is Levi about one second after I put him in his seat.

And then there is Leah!

Thankfully she didn't stay that way the entire trip back to the hotel.

It was a fun time at the game, the Tigers didn't win, but we still had a memorable day!

Oh my gosh! I love it! I love your matching t-shirts. Way to go on those. How sweet of the older two boys, waiting so patiently to receive their autographs. Too cute of them all sitting in their seats. The sleeping, screaming pictures were THE best. So like my family!

Glad you had good weather!
