Yesterday I attended my first Tampa Bay Rays baseball game!
It was a great game to go to because it was not only the season opener, but they were playing this little start-up team called the Yankees. Maybe you’ve heard of them?
Ryan and I went to the game with my parents and arrived a few hours early to tailgate and enjoy a block party outside of Tropicana Field.
Do you like my beads? I worked hard for those… but not Mardi Gras hard, if ya know what I mean.
The game started a little after 3 p.m. and was a fun one to watch. We even got to see one of the Rays players (Pena) hit a grand slam which was absolutely insane. The crowd went crazy!
Attending a baseball game must include ballpark snacks and we made sure to get some food after watching the game for a bit.
Healthy eats were hard to find at the game, so a basket of chicken fingers and fries satisfied my hunger.
And lots of peanuts, of course!
The Rays ended up winning which was just icing on the cake after a fun afternoon!
On our way home we stopped by Yogurtology for frozen yogurt to tide us over until dinner.
We spent the rest of the evening at my parents’ house, chatting over a home cooked meal with my family.
Now we’re getting ready to dig into a breakfast (I made my banana pecan coconut baked oatmeal for everyone), before hitting the road for Sarasota to spend the night at my mother-in-law’s house. If you’re looking for a healthy and easy breakfast dish to make for a big gang this weekend, a big batch of baked oatmeal is the way to go! Our house smells fantastic.
See ya in a bit!
