We picked Brent up at work and headed straight to the game, first pitch at 12:40pm.
We actually stayed in our seats for three innings this game! I think that's a record! Brent enjoyed two Mariner dogs and the rest of us split a chicken tender meal. Oh boy, we were eating healthy!
But then we had "reservations" for the playground by the fourth inning. Yes, you read that right - there are so many children in attendance, they pass out time slots before the game starts for when your child can come back and play in the play area!
Super cute area and I know Kade so wanted to climb higher with big brother!
It just so happened that the interns at Concur had their monthly team-building outing at the baseball game that day and the company rented out three suites for them! (There were lots of companies in attendance on a Wednesday afternoon game actually - we saw tons of Zillow employees in matching shirts and a Boeing group too!)
Brent wanted to introduce his intern Elisa, an undergrad from Stanford but local to Bellevue, to his family and she was so sweet to bring us tickets so we could come up to the suite too! Brock loved the view.... and the ice cream!
By the ninth inning (which is the longest we've stayed for a game in 3.5 years), we were ready to head home. Thank goodness for extra innings so we beat the rush and yay for the Mariners bringing in the W with a final score of 6 - 5 in the 11th!
Oh and good job Kade! This was your first Major League Baseball game! (And Brock's fourth!!)
