Take Me Out To the Playpen

Mr. TVP and I went to a Giants game last night. It was the first time I had been to AT&T Park. After doing a lot of time at Candlestick Park, I can just say "wow". What a difference. It was a pleasure just to walk around the park and look at the views.

We don't go out alone too often, and we aren't trying to escape K. However, it is nice to go and just talk about adult things. We don't have a strict "no talking about the kid" policy, but sometimes it is an effort to remember all the other things we have in common. Sometimes going to a new place is a perfect way to just be people.

We had great seats and splurged on some ballpark food and beer. It wasn't too cold. However, everywhere we turned there were babies and toddlers. At a 7:15 pm game? Three of them across the aisle from us. It didn't spoil the evening or anything but it was ironic. We tried to go and have some time to ourselves and couldn't stop talking about kids.

We left the game early and took the streetcar home. K. was really happy to see us and had had a good time with Grandma & Grandpa. I'm going to check into the Giants Stitch & Pitch event on July 22nd. It is so easy to get there and back. The train stops on our corner, goes downtown, and stops right at the ballpark.
