Baseball Game

Going to a baseball game was on our summer bucket list, so the first Saturday of summer we took the kids to a BYU baseball game.  It was the last game of the season, but if you are interested in going to a summer game the Orem Owlz are about to start their season.

I don't especially love baseball - in fact I can't make myself pay attention long enough to even see more than one play.  Still there is something exciting about sitting at the field with family or friends so I try to go once a year.

The day we went it was raining really hard.

Tips for outdoor activities with kids when it's raining:
Bring ponchos.  They sell crap ones that are good enough to use once at Walmart for 88 cents.
Bring hand warmers.  You should be able to find hand warmers for around $1.  Totally worth it.  Keeps those little hands warm and out of trouble.
Dress warm.  Cold kids are not happy kids.
We brought blankets too (that we didn't care about getting dirty or wet) for extra warmth.  Smart move on my part.  I'm a firm believer that there is no such thing as being over prepared.

Even though it wasn't ideal weather we still had a great time.  What's on your summer bucket list?
