P Nats

We took in a Potomac Nationals game a few weeks ago. We went on a Sunday afternoon and started off with lunch at the park.

It was a super hot day (100* or so), but we managed to sit through a few innings before the boys needed to find some shade.

(Matthew actually leaned over and said, “Mommy, you should take a picture of this.” And then he left to go cool off in the sprinkler.)

They had a cooling off area in the shade right next to a kid-friendly play area. They are no fools.

Grandpa took the boys in to practice pitching.

Grandpa gave David some pointers (and moved him a little bit closer to the target.)

It’s hard to see if you don’t know where to look, but the ball is heading straight for the catcher’s mitt in this shot.

Matthew had his own, unique style. He did pretty well this way, too.

There was a moon bounce slide, too, which the boys enjoyed. That’s David in the background. He threw himself down the slide.

After the 7th inning stretch, we decided we had taken as much of the heat as we could. We packed up and headed for the car.

We were glad to hear the P Nats won, earning two more runs after we left.

The next time I suggest a mid-day game during a horrendous heat wave, someone has got to stop me.
