The Wilsons and the Angels

(I am in no way saying the Wilsons are angels. Believe me.)

I don't know if you can tell from this pic, but we had GREAT seats.
We were in section 106, row H. Seriously, we were only 7 rows back, right behind 3rd base.
And could the pic be any better? If you look closely, the pitcher had just thrown the ball, which happened to be right over home base as I snapped the pic, and the Angels batter was in mid-swing. If only Nathan wasn't standing right in front of me as I took the pic, you wouldn't see the back of the top of his hat.

Too bad Rob had to work. : (

The Angels beat the Minnesota Twins 14 to 10.
The Angels got 9 of their 11 runs in the 4th inning!

For some reason we lucked out today, as it was the first time ever that California Pizza Kitchen gave away free ceramic "Rally" coin banks to all the kids who attended the game. So all three boys got one, and they've already added some coins once we got home.

If the free Angels "piggy" banks weren't enough, the Angels scored at least 10 runs, which means the entire stadium 'earned' their wings--buffalo wings, that is. We picked Rob up and brought him to Claim Jumper. With our four tickets, we shared four dishes of buffalo wings for FREE! So we bought a HUGE eclair for dessert that our family could hardly finish!

And do you think the boys didn't have enough fun with the Angels game, the free piggy banks, AND the free buffalo wings at Claim Jumper?
Of course they didn't! At home they're doing what boys do best--wrestling.

I loved this post! Cute boys, especially the wrestling pic. Did the boys like the actual game? Do they know the rules?

Seeing the pictures of your boys reminds me of the pictures of my brothers when my mom had just the 5boys. Good times! And yes, awesome baseball pictures, and I'm so glad you had fun!!

The boys LOVED the game, and knew some of the rules, though I had to point out if someone had struck out, or was "walked," etc.

It was fun to exclaim when I guy stole 3rd base.

Janell, you have 5 brothers??!!!??
