The company I work for put together a family night event at AutoZone Park, which is where the Memphis Redbirds play. If you're not familiar with the Redbirds, they're our minor league baseball team. Since The Hero was off on Saturday, I figured it would be the perfect time to take the kids to a game. Neither had been to a sporting event in a stadium. I knew they'd love it. Plus, it was fireworks night and everything was paid for. Who can say no to that?
The Redbirds may have lost, but we certainly didn't. Our evening consisted of a few small rain showers, wet seats, BBQ nachos, hot dogs, sodas, cotton candy, jumping, clapping, yelling, cheering, dancing, laughing, socializing with coworkers, fireworks, and two kids who didn't complain once about wanting to go home. I'd call that a S-U-C-C-E-S-S!
