Outdoor Wednesday ~ Take Me Out to the Ball Game!

John was given three tickets to see the Philadelphia Phillies play the Colorado Rockies on Friday evening along with tickets to the High and Inside Pub where we got a bite to eat.
It was one of Those Lazy Hazy Crazy Days of Summer with temps in the high 90's,  The heat index in the stadium didn't drop below 94 all evening.
But that didn't stop us from having a great time!
Me and My Guy!

♪♪♪ Nothing you can say, Can take me away, From my guy.
Nothing you could do, 'cause I'm stuck like glue, To my guy.
I'm sticking to my guy, Like a stamp to a letter,
Like birds of a feather, We, stick together,
I can tell you from the start, I can't be torn apart from my guy.

Nothing you could do, Could make me be untrue,
To my guy. My Guy
Nothing you could buy, Could make me tell a lie, To my guy. My Guy
I gave my guy, My word of honour, To be faithful, And I'm gonna,
You'd better be believing, I won't be deceiving, My guy. 

♪♪♪ As a matter of opinion, I think he's tops, My opinion is, He's the cream of the crop,
As a matter of taste, To be exact, He's my ideal, As a matter of fact.
No muscle bound man, Could take my hand, From my guy. My guy
No handsome face, Could ever take the place, Of my guy, My guy

He may not be a movie star, But when it comes to being happy, We are,
There's not a man today, Who can take me away, From my guy.
(what'cha say?)
There's not a man today, Who could take me away, From my guy.
(Tell me more!)

There's not a man today, Who could take me away, From my guy.

oh, sorry, he just makes my heart sing.
Back to the ballgame...
Abbey and John waiting for the stands to fill.
Abbey and I.
Abbey isn't really snarling in this photo.  She is sketching this...
from our seats directly behind home plate...
...almost to nose-bleed alley.

My favorite shot of the evening.
A looks that says, 'Mom, I'm gonna break your camera.'
But I still love her!  And, I know she's going to get nice to me in a few more years.
A beautiful summer view of the city skyline. 
Lots of cheering fans.
Pitcher Roy Halladay
and, of course, The Phillie Phanatic!
Phillies won 6-0
Roy Halladay cruised through eight innings, Raul Ibanez drove in three runs with three hits and Philadelphia beat the Colorado Rockies 6-0 for its second consecutive shutout.

Fun photos of the ball park and skyline and all the photos of you three are great. You and John look so happy and so in love and Abbey is stunning as always. You have made me hungry for greasy ball park food now!

Sherry said...

Looks like you had a great time!
Thanks for taking us to the ballgame!

Abbey said...

I always try to return the favor and indeed, I really enjoyed the beautiful photographs. My favorite is the skyline of the city - BEAUTIFUL! I'm a fan of skylines . . . your daughter, ABBEY is an artist? Wow, if she just whipped that out, then she is REALLY impressive!

Lovely blog, lovely family, lovely you!

Abbey ♥

Ann said...

Love how you broke out in song right in the middle of your post.lol. Your guy looked pretty happy to be at that ball game. Baseball is the one sport that I actually understand and can enjoy. I know that look on Abbey's face, I get it all the time. The only difference is it looks cuter on Abbey than it does on my husband...lol

Julie Harward said...

My sweet husband would love this...and I would too... A beautiful night at the ball game. I love how you included that song, I love it too. Your guy is a handsome husband and a lucky man to have such a beautiful wife. Your daughter is a beauty too and boy can she sketch! Thanks for sharing :D

I haven't been to a ball game in a while. Too hot for me. Looks like you had fun. Love the photo of your daughter with the evil eye.

Wow 94 deg and you look that great? My hair would definitely be plastered to my head.

Great pics. Looks like you had a fun time.

EG Wow said...

It amazes me that such a crowd would be out in those high temperatures! You must really, really LOVE baseball. :)

Nice looking family. :)

You knew I'd love this post!!!!! Your daughter is very talented -- great sketch! Fun night out!


Traci said...

We love baseball at my house. The pictures of the skyline were gorgeous. Your daughter's sketch was great too! She's very talented.

g.suzie said...

What a fun night out, wow lots of fans in the grandstands. . .Your daughter is quite handy with the sketchpad. . .she is also quite a 'looker' you better keep an eye on her!

Dayle said...

Loved this! Your pics are great and you look lovely. We're into our second year of retirement now and visiting all of the MLB ballparks is on our list of must-dos (on The Man's list mainly, but I do enjoy a good baseball game). It's been fun.

Buttercup said...

Great pictures! Baseball and Motown music are two of my all time favorites.

sewingseeds4U said...

What a fun night! And your right she will think your the wonderful in a few years...I have a feeling she already does!

marie said...

What a great evening ~ hot or not! All the photos are wonderful. You get the best. I love the photo of Abbey and I love her sketch! But my favorites are the one of you and your guy (great song, by the way!) and the one of Abbey and John. Sweet memories!

Kristen said...

Summer baseball games are such a treat. How fun for you!!

Tara said...

Looks like you all had a great time and a good view of the game. A lil high though! Whew.
Great sketch by your lovely daughter. Awesome!
You and the hubby are too cute.

Linda said...

What great photos! That is a very pretty stadium and sky line! Looks like a fun time was had by all and Abbey is quite the artist!

Shandy said...

What fantastic photos of the ballgame! Glad you all had a blast, even in the heat. Your daughter did a great pencil sketch of the game.

Bethany said...

Abbey must get her creative eye from you! You take wonderful photographs, and she draws beautifully. I'm so glad you enjoyed yourselves! We all need to get away once in awhile, and family makes those little getaways all the more special!

Laurie said...

Living where we do, pro ball games aren't close by, but a few years ago we took our then-at-home daughters to a Rockies game in Denver. It was a lot of fun, but I cannot remember who won!

Great pics of you and "your guy" (that song may stay on my mind this evening!), and Abbey's sketch is so good! Fun memories!

eileeninmd said...

Wonderful photos from the Phillies game. The views look beautiful.

Kathleen said...

Great pics. I don't like those high bleachers, makes me dizzy! Red Sox fans here...odd since we live in NY.
Have a great weekend!

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

This looks like a fun evening! I always enjoy attending a baseball game ...but of course I'm a Yankee fan :) Your daughter is beautiful!
