After the rice mill & Tabasco fieldtrip, we drove to Houston for the weekend. The main reason for going to Houston was to see the Diamondbacks play the Astros. Luke & Cameron played for the Diamondbacks during baseball season. On Friday night, we decided that we would all go since the tickets were so cheap and they have fireworks.
Daddy & Luke went to the game early hoping to get autographs, but weren't able to get any. However, they did get the free Astros hats that were being given away to the first 10,000 visitors. The rest of us came a little later with Uncle Lee.
After watching a little bit of the game, we ended up going to the restaurant that they have inside the stadium to eat supper. It was started by former players Bagwell and Biggio.
After dinner, the kids played in the playground area while I went shopping in the gift store. They were having a great sale...40% off and buy one, get one free...plus it was a tax free weekend. Basically, I got every kid a shirt for $6.
By this time, it was late in the game and we were finally able to find some seats down close by the field to get a good view of the fireworks.
After the game was over, they slowly opened the roof.
When the roof was open, then it was time for the fireworks. It was really a great show, Craig said that it was worth the price of admission just for that.
