Houston Astros Game
Ever since we moved here we've been wanting to go to an Astros game. I'm so used to cheering on the Braves, as my family has been longtime season ticket holders, that I was confusing everyone here when talking about going to a "Braves" game when really the home team here is the Astros. Changing teams is hard to get used to! Anyways, the Junior League of Galveston County of which I am a member was having a fundraiser selling Astros tickets. Luckily, Josh was actually in town for the first weekend since July so it was perfect timing! The season is ending in a couple of weeks so it was great to get to sneak in a game before the season ended. My good friend, Ashley, her husband, and their baby, Karsyn came with us as well. Karsyn and Lila are 8 days apart, so they are already BFFs. Minute Maid Park is so neat! There is a retractable roof on the top, so we didn't have to worry about sweating to death or getting rained on as we used to going to games at Fulton County Stadium and Turner Field. It was raining on Sunday, so the roof was closed, which made the park seem smaller, but in a good way. Lila was squirmy, as usual, but her and Karsyn played together on the floor for a bit until it was time to sleep (there was too much activity for Lila to go to sleep, but Karsyn took a good nap!). The Astros won 4-3 against the Reds, and it was a great time with good friends! Next on the Texas to-do list: Houston Texans game.
