Fisher Cats - April Vacation Part Three

The Autism Society of New Hampshire (www.autism-society-nh.org) recently teamed up with the NH Fisher Cats (a "farm team" for the Toronto Blue Jays - www.nhfishercats.com) to hold an Autism Awareness Day. Tickets were cheap, it was to support a great cause, so we grabbed a bunch and went with the family.

My kids have never been to a professional baseball game (I went to see the Red Sox, at least, once a year when I was growing up - now tickets are SO outrageously priced there is no way I could take my kids) and they were very excited! Zachary even brought his baseball glove hoping to catch a fly ball.

We had a great time with my family (even though it was pretty darn cold and pretty darn rainy).

The Fisher Cats won 3-2. It was a great game even if the boys had more fun tormenting me than watching it :)

While I hoped all my boys would fall asleep on the way home...

Thankfully Kirby didn't fall asleep either :)

Zach didn't catch a fly ball but a few of us were featured on the big screen (even me, doing my "Macho Man" impression...now I realize why they call it a BIG screen, ugh).

Hopefully next year will be a bit warmer!

I love Zach's face looking at the flyball. Priceless

P.S. From time to time our company gives away tix to the Fishercats, free for employees. I hate baseball, want me to try to snag some...???

I'll see what I can do.. 4, 5?

Oh, that would be great, Jessi! If they are available and nobody else wants them 5 would be great! No pressure :) Thanks for the offer!
