Naturals Game

Last Friday, we headed to watch the Naturals play in Springdale. The ballpark was hosting Faith and Family night so we went to the game with a huge group from church. We had never been to the ballpark before, so we weren't sure what to expect. However, the park was more than I could have ever imagined. There is a playground in the park, sand pits, a baseball/kickball field, and bounce arounds. Leightyn had a blast. We listened to a concert and play on the playground before the game started.

During the first inning, the bounce arounds were being blown up. I really expected to only let Leightyn play on them once or twice (I didn't think it would be cheap). Instead we spent almost the entire night on them (from the 2nd to the 8th inning). For $5, Leightyn got to play on the bounce around, the pitching cage, and the obstacle course. I really didn't think she could or would want to climb up the wall to the slide, but as you can tell from the pictures and the videos, it was not a problem).

Leightyn enjoyed "watching" (running back and forth to her friends) a few minutes of the game.

The Gentry Safari was one of the sponsors for the game. They brought in several of their animals to pet and play with. Leightyn's favorites were the baby lion, the yak, and "Khloe" the monkey with a bottle and a diaper.

When the game was over, we enjoyed a great 20 minute firework show. Leightyn had so much fun. She was so tired we went finally got to the car. She was asleep before we made it out of the parking lot.
