I think it might become a Byard family annual tradition to attend at least one Cincinnati Reds Game during the summer.
|Home of the Cincinnati Reds :)|
We've gone the past two years with Kyle's family and we enjoyed both times very much! However, I think I'd have to say that if I had a choice, this year was better. First of all, this year we went at the beginning of June instead of the end of July. This cut down on the temperature A LOT. It was still hot in the stands, but that's more from the proximity of people as opposed to the real temperature, I think.

Plus, this year Kyle's sister Kelsey went with us. Last year she couldn't go because she couldn't get off work :(
And....this year we went to the IKEA store before going to the game! Can you say amazing?! We didn't buy anything...it was enough to just look. Kyle's brother Jacob got a coffee table for his room (for what I have no idea) but other than that, we were all able to hold out on getting much.
It was also a lot of fun rooting against the Tigers (mostly because all of Kyle's family are Detroit Tigers fans).

|Leaving during the 7th inning stretch...poor Michele had work the next day :(|
So I think this year was just a lot better!
Plus, I even got some of the practice pitches AND Kelsey being dumb on video (she quickly realized I was filming):
Ahhhh....ballgames. Makes for good family memories!
