Two M's games in one weekend? True that!

On Sunday we headed to Safeco field for another M's game!  Two in one weekend, how lucky is Colby??  Well, let's just say I spoiled him on this game!  I bought suite tickets from Zulily and yes, I didn't say sweet tickets, I said suite tickets!!  Zulily even sent us a parking pass so this picture is actually showing you that we were the third car from the exit in the parking garage and no, we didn't get there 3hrs before the game, we actually got there a little after the start of the game.

This was Elle's first game and we were totally and utterly spoiled by the M's.  When we walked in they gave Elle a jersey (the game giveaway), certificate stating it was her first game.  Every person you passed on the way to the suite would give Elle a collector's baseball card.  The best part was our front row seats to watch the M's win against the Minnesota twins!  We also got a gift card with $20 on it to spend on food from the attendant at our suite.  A little while after we were sitting, a guy came and took our picture.  He printed it out and gave it back to us in a Mariner's frame saying "Baby's first M's game" super cool!!

Enjoying the view!

Fishies and water, perfect game snack!

Checking everything out.

Up close and personal!

Sitting like a big girl!

Elle really got a kick out of her seat.  It was a fold up cushy seat so she would lift her legs a bit and the seat would start to fold up and then she would push it down.  By the end of the game, Elle was exhausted!

Awesome view through the Plexiglas!

We shared the entire front row of the suite with two other people.  Elle was able to walk around and play without Colby or I stressing as it was super safe! Seriously this was the best possible way to enjoy the game with a very active 1 year old. 

Elle had the hat from Grandma and Grandpa S but she had outgrown her warm up suit so I made her a little onesie with the trident M on it :)  Old school rocks!

The Mariner's moose also came to our suite for pictures. 

However, Elle was not a fan!  She was crying and clawing Colby trying to get away from the moose!

Calmed down a bit but she won't turn her back on him. 

Daddy trying to explain to Elle that the Moose is quite friendly.

She kept watching him as he moved from suite to suite.
Waving bye bye to the M's after the game!

Since it was kids day at the field we were able to go through the tunnel and check out the field!

Waiting for our turn to run the bases.

Daddy showing Elle where Ichiro made a few catches.

Rounding second.

What the heck is that??  Wa Ta? (Elle language)  Daddy, giant Key but keeping going.  Elle tried to turn and go back but it was like trying to swim up stream...

Rounding third base but Elle really wanted to sit on the base.

Coming in to home plate!

Elle was so pretty tuckered out by the time she finished!

They also gave Elle a certificate saying she had run the bases as well as a really nice pin to put on her cap!

What a great day! Elle don't worry, the moose is your friend. If you still don't like him, I'm very close to the Red Robin bird. We'll ease you into it.

Okay, upon further viewing I am truly amazed at the handmade onesie! I read that you made the shirt but didn't realize you made this shirt - Wow, great job!
