Spontaneous Surprise Adventure...

Occasionally, we plan surprise adventures for the girls...We plan an event and don't tell them what it is, get them in the car and they find out when we arrive at our destination! (ex. Dora and Diego and Lion King at the Orpheum, trips to the zoo, to the movie, Adventure Science Museum, etc...) so this weekend Ray was working and I was on the computer and Brenly comes in and asks when we are going to a Diamond Jaxx baseball game (we have taken her once before and she LOVED it) After she left, I clicked on the Diamond Jaxx link and it so happened that Sat.night they were going to have fireworks AND kids got to run the bases...OH my ,two of Brenly's favorite things. I called Ray as he was heading home and he said it was good idea! So Ray gets home, and we pile in the car and tell Brenly we are going on an adventure...It's funny because she tends to try to guess where we are going, and never quite gets it! So we get to the ball field in Jackson and she figured it out and was so excited! We get tickets, find our seats and as soon as we sit down, Brenly decides that she needs to go potty (of course she does!)...SO we go and she overhears another little kid talking about the fireworks...and that was that...no matter how long the game lasted, we were staying to watch them...We go back to our seats and Ray found out that they were playing a double header, due to a rain out the night before...UUGGGHHH, you guessed it! At 11:30 PM we were watching fireworks (Avery passed out during the firework finale) and running the bases!!! We didn't get home until 12:15am...But we had a BIG TIME! I am glad that we were spontaneous..Sometimes those are the best times!
We were being silly with the camera...


...and I was trying to keep them awake...It was a long night!!

spur of the moment events end up being my FAVORITE even if they are rushed or a little hectic sometimes! That sounds so fun!
