It was a bit overcast and drizzly as we were getting downtown and parking. But the sun came out bright and hot about the second inning and it was a perfect day for baseball. The Cards lost to the Mets but we had a great time.
We tried to do the game on the cheap which happened until we wanted concessions! We got the tickets half price so 12.50 each. I got our Cards tee shirts at Goodwill (my friend Brooke ended up giving me a nice new one that I wore) and we ate lunch before heading in so that helped. Of course we had to get the kids some treats so they got frozen lemonades and shared a 6.50 pretzel. How crazy is that?! Those things will be 10 bucks in a few years!! My regular diet coke was 5.50!! I did discover you can get a free courtesy cup of ice then fill it at the water fountain.
We went to the wrong parking deck when we left and ended up taking a rickshaw ride to the right one. That was fun too.
