Last Saturday Dad, Hannah and I headed into the city to attend 2nd annual Toronto Blue Jays game. Last year was the first time we did this and we declared that day that this would become an annual tradition!
We choose to go on a Saturday as each Saturday is a Jr Jays game with lots of free activities and give-aways for the kiddos. I’ve heard a baseball game is made up of 9 innings but so far in the 2 years we’ve gone I’ve only seen about 5 innings each year. I know that going in though and Hannah enjoys the break during the game to enjoy things like face painting,
a ball toss and,
Jr Jays are a great opportunity to introduce children to baseball with activities set up inside and outside the stadium and running throughout the game to entertain the restless kiddos.
Hannah enjoyed what we saw of the game although it was pretty toasty when we first arrived as we were in the sun for the first few innings. Why sit in your seat when you can use it for shade while you snack?
I was playing with the zoom on my point-n-shoot camera and was impressed with the clarity! You can see in the pic above that we were well up in the nose-bleeds but I was still able to snap this pic below. Cool! The camera I had last year bit the dust but Canon replaced is for free with this great camera! (Canon G9-X) I still need to learn more about how to use it but I’m slowly working on that and really impressed at all the features this little pocket camera has!
PS – Hannah says we really must do something about Grandpa’s red shirt at a Toronto BLUE Jays game! I think she’s absolutely right!!
