We Will Never Grow Up

Once upon a time, a couple decided to take their family to a baseball game. It was to be the youngest's first game. They were all so excited. See the happy family?

Unfortunately (or not depending on who you are in this story), the mommy was fairly sleep deprived and, much to the delight of the rest of her family (the little snots), she fell asleep once the game started. See the mommy snore and drool?

It wasn't long before the daddy and the girl decided it would be fun to try to throw whoppers (a perfectly good chocolate candy) into the mommy's open mouth. Meanwhile, the little boy decided it would be more fun to try to steal the pretty cotton candy from the little boy in the seat in front of him.

When a whopper pelted her in the eye and woke her up, the daddy cheered the mommy up by reminding her that it could have been worse. They could have not woken her up and had her put on the giant screen behind them for everyone to see. The mommy expressed her gratitude by sticking a whopper up the daddy's nose.

And because no family trip would be complete without it, the girl decided to fall down the stairs at the end of the night, narrowly escaping serious injury but managing to take out 2 adults in the process. Yay us! Er, I mean, Yay them!

And, um... I'm sorry. This seemed so much funnier when I thought about blogging it at 3 am Saturday morning. It's amazing the things that amuse you when you're begging a toddler to sleep.

The team lost but we still had fun. Because no matter where we go we somehow manage to make complete fools of ourselves.

And then there was Mr X. He took my camera and said he was going to just take a picture of Ichiro for me. 5 minutes later, he's giggling like a schoolgirl and he won't give me back the camera. When he finally showed me what he was doing, I nearly peed myself laughing. The following commentary is all his.

"Do these pants make my butt look big?"
"I'm too sexy for my glove..... Hey there Sexy Girlfriend!"
"I blow you keessseessss!!!!!!"

And I have 17 more pictures of Ichiro in strange poses on my camera that he took that night. My husband is the strangest person I've ever met.
