No Joke...Best day of the summer

this happened over a week ago but i finally got around to bloggin it! so after matt go back from his grandpa's funeral he decided to take the monday off. we really didnt start doing anything until around 6:30 when we were kind of deciding what to do and then all of a sudden matt thought of an Orioles baseball game in baltimore...he went to go look it up and low and behold they were playing the Oakland Athletics!
we didnt take this picture but i thought it was pretty funny!
it was great to finally be able to go to a game that wasnt on sunday and just relax
The A's were killing the O's. And it only got better. Some guy that worked for the stadium came up to where we were sitting and started to tell us that we needed to move up under the overhang because a huge lightening storm was headed our way. and thats when we say the huge wind gusts blowing trash all over the field. but somehow matt heard that it was from a ship of some kind like a cruise ship or something...i dont know...then it just started to pour rain!! it was awesome!

it was so much fun! they started to cover the field and i had never seen that done! it was pretty cool. It looked fun to be down in the rain! i started to freak out just a little bit becuase of how hard it was raining mixed with my white shirt! but we were under the over hang and only got misted!
It was coming down so hard and looked way cool with the lights!
Matt and i kept wondering if it was ever going to die down so we could make a run for the car. And it eventually came to a drizzle and we headed out of the stadium. once we were out of the gates and practically to our car we heard cheering and figured it was just the song or someone being goofy. so we kept walking.
We made it to a restaurant and saw the game. we first thought it was the recap but it really was live feed and we ended up missing the last 4 innings! kind of sad but we still had so much fun. but the fun doesnt just end at dinner...we watched a movie as well! We blanking on what we saw...............................oh yeah GI JOes!! i loved it. everyone said that it was super cheesey and one liners but i think thats what made the movie. We were laughing most of the time.
But it turned out to be one of the best days of the summer! everything was spur of the moment and i think thats what made it so fun!
Matt and i have had fun together this summer but we really werent enjoying our jobs and to be honest the east coast is just different... ive noticed that people are just rude, especially and restaurants! oh well back to the west coast where people are friendly!! we are so excited!

  2. Go A's... Im so happy you went! And good thing they killed em!
