Today was Faith Day at The Great American Ballpark. For those of you who don’t know where that it is, it’s in Cincinnati.
Now, I don’t like baseball, at all.
I do like the building. I love this where it says Rounding Third and heading for Home! Isn’t that cute?
It was really hot, but we were luckily in the shade most of the game. Do you know that a baseball game takes 3 hours? No, I’m not kidding. The kids were ready to go after about the bottom half of the first inning. We took lots of snacks and drinks. I almost had a heart attack when I saw that a water cost $4.50. I can get a case of water right now for $3.99. Why do people pay that kind of money for water?
The kids kept cool with the water we brought but we did break down and buy Dippin’ Dots. They were $4.50 each. Now, I’ll pay that for ice cream even though it is a little high.
I spent the entire game reading my new book by Danielle Steele. It was nice because I got to read for the entire three hours without feeling like I was neglecting the kids.
Griffin’s favorite part of the game was the Kiss Cam, smile cam and kid cam.
My favorite one was the Beef Cam. That is the one where you show your muscles. There were a couple of pretty beefy guys along with some really cute little kiddy muscles.
At least the Reds won, 2 to 1, over the Braves. The crazy thing was I never saw the only Reds players I know, Johnny Bench and Pete Rose. Not sure about that. LOL
The real reason we went was for the concert after the game. Mercy Me has came to Cincinnati to do the concert for Faith Day for the past several years. I had never seen Mercy Me live but I love their music.
I can only Imagine is one of my favorite songs and they didn’t let their fans down. They played this and many other great songs.
So, all in all, the concert was worth the extremely hot day. Next time, I would rather pay more to just see the concert. We were up very, very high. Bella was impressed because we were higher than the birds. God blessed us with a beautiful, clear sky. Mercy Me did an awesome job, and I guess, so did the Reds. There were over 45,000 people at the sold out game. I only wish more would have stayed for the concert.
