First Phillies Game!

While we were visiting every one in New Jersey, we planned it out so that Kalea's first baseball game ever would be at a Phillies game.  To make it easier on the wallet, it also happened to be a dollar dog night.  So on Thursday, April 12th we ventured to Citizens Bank Park with MomMom and PopPop.  

We had high hopes for the game since last season Kalea "went" to 7 Phillies games while she was growing nice and strong inside me and every game we went to was a victory.  

Here we are on our way into the game, ready with our baby carriers and Kalea all decked out in her Phillies gear.  What you can't see is her wearing her Chase Utley baby jersey, but it is there!
 I bet she can't wait until she can play in the Phillie Phanatic play area when she gets older!
 It was of course a super chilly night at the ball game, luckily we were prepared.  It is also a good thing that Kalea is a nice little heat box when she is all snuggled up.  She was helping to keep me so warm while she was sleeping on me during the game.  Later in the evening we changed her into her nice warm pajamas so that she could be passed around without getting cold.  Here is a great shot with her wonderful Grandparents enjoying the game with her.
 I absolutely love this shot with her MomMom.
 Just for Kalea, Shane Victorino hit his first home run of the season at the game!  Luckily, I got a shot of the bell ringing after the hit.
 Kalea celebrating the Phillies she is 8 and 0!
 Us celebrating as well!
It was such a great night.  We were so glad to share the experience with Linda and Dale.  The Phillies won 3 - 1 versus the Miami Marlins.  They are currently struggling, so I think we are very lucky to have gone to a victorious game.  Here is hoping their season turns around soon!
