On Wednesday the family and I went to a Mets game with Devin's prom date Lauren and her family. The Connecticut Down Syndrome Congress had a bunch of tickets for anyone interested, and we were lucky enough to be sent some--we are New York fans (obviously) so free tickets are always appreciated!
The view from the bridge on the way to the stadium...
It was my first baseball game of the season! I don't usually go more than two or three times a summer, but I really really love the new Citi Field. There's a Shake Shack (yesss) and it's more open and airy.
Our seats weren't the greatest (promenade level, top top top) but there weren't too many people sitting near us, so we could spread out. It was super hot that day but we learned early on that if you sit in the last row, all the way at the top, there is a nice constant breeze.
And though we didn't have the greatest view of the field, we did get prime seats for watching the cutest babies with Down syndrome I have ever seen. There were a bunch of families around us who also got tickets through the CDSC. Seriously these kids were adorable--as young as a few months old. One little girl, no older than two, kept hugging her mom throughout the entire game. So. Freaking. Cute.
The game was a bit of a nail-biter at the end, but the Mets swept. That's my team.
