Angels Game

We just got back from an amazing weekend in the LA area. Friday, we loaded up the car and headed down early to Anaheim and checked into our hotel. We got a great room at the end of the hall with a great view of Disneyland and the area.

A few hours later we made our way to Angels stadium about a mile away. We had great seats behind home plate. Didn’t catch any balls, but we had a great view of the homeplate slides and the 3 bats that were shattered during the game. When the first one broke, I looked at Kai and exclaimed, “That must be a great batter!” By the 3rd time it happened, I realized it wasn’t a good thing since it slowed the ball way down and made it super easy to catch (good thing it was the visiting team all 3 times!). The Angels won and we had a great time!

We also sat next to some great guys that looked a little scary dressed in black, pierced all over, and smelled of heavy alcohol and cigarettes—but they were actually pretty entertaining during the whole game and we had great conversations throughout.

At the end, they had amazing fireworks. They lasted as long as the 4th of July ones we go see. The sky lit up and we felt the booms in our chests. I LOVE fireworks!!! What a great way to start the weekend!
