Opening Day

Reed here. Uncle Whit, I know you are all the way over there in Korea missing opening day so I have a little jingle for you.

Take me out to the ball game
Take me out to the crowd
Buy me some peanuts and cracker jacks
I don't care if I ever get back
Root Root Root for the CUBIES
If they don't win it's a shame
For it's 1-2-3 strikes your out
At the Old Ball Game

Michael here - Well it's here, opening day of the baseball season and Reed watched his first Cubs game. Unfortunately they lost in extra innings 4 - 3 but not before Reed got to enjoy a few moments of the game. He got to wear his Cubs onesie that I bought for him last year at Wrigley Field. After a little excitement in the last of the 9th. I showed Reed how to cheer.
On a side note, the neighbor's little boys came over today. Reed had a great time doing push ups with them.

Reed has perfect push-up form! He's even on his toes. This kid is a prodigy!

Thanks Reed for that ditty. I bet it will sound a whole lot better when you get some teeth.

I actually got to see opening day as the first game, Red Sox v. A's, this season was played in Japan. I sat down at 7:30PM and actually got to watch an MLB game during prime time. It was different but fantastic. BUT I did miss the Nats/Braves opener which was a bummer.

Looking forward to meeting you!

Ada is jealous that Reed is showing off his push-ups to others besides her. The week of Jimmy's Ironman we are planning on taking Ada to Chicago and visiting Wrigley Field. She will have to bring back a little some'um some'um for the Cub's smallest biggest fan.

P.S. Whit LOL on your comment back to Reed in reference to his teeth!

Ada needs more Reed!

Thanks for visiting.
