Rob rarely to never gets upset with me. Truly. Saint of marital patience. But I knew when he asked me for the fourth time if I had taken the kids to get Orioles t-shirts, that he was going to be legit mad if I didn’t do it.
He had asked me the entire Ravens season about getting team shirts, and I just put it off and put it off and put it off, until they won the super bowl, the season passed, and it was off my to do list.
Now the Orioles. I am more of a “wear the team’s colors” type of girl. So I just didn’t see the point. Sadly, so very sadly, I spent my entire time at Auburn never buying an Auburn shirt. I literally wore dresses or skirts to every game #greeklifeproblems. Which is seriously so sad to me now, so I am glad that my husband is teaching me how to be a true fan.
And he has certainly, definitely passed on the t-shirt love to our children. Also, the public transportation love. EBug did not want to sit still the whole game. She was in constant motion. I go to ball games for the food. I had heard on the radio that they were serving waffle fries with crab dip this year! Sign me up. Do not try to make this girl sit in the stands. Unless you want to hate your life. But a picnic area where she could collect rocks! Now that’s a different story. Probably could have just gone to the park for that. This face. I don’t even know. Three t-shirts and one in team colors. Reform is slow. Just workin’ on his fitness. Bless it. He was a doll the whole day! He was obsessed with the funnel cake. Who wouldn’t be. E said she loved the “fun, old cake!”After we got home, I asked her what her favorite part was. She said it was hugging her Oriole. She was very possessive of him.
As much work as it was, it was a really great family outing! I am glad we made the memory.
