Rain Delay at Dodger Stadium

The tarp!

Although is doesn't happen very often tonight was the second rain delay at Dodger Stadium this season.

I was supposed to take Aedan, Brody, and Cody but since Aedan got sick I brought Kirsten, Avery Rose, and Madyson. We knew that rain was in the forecast and we came prepared. Tights under our jeans, tank tops, long sleeves, short sleeves, sweatshirts and jackets. Gloves, hats, and blankets.

We arrived really early to catch batting practice.

It sprinkled/rained on and off throughout game but in the bottom of the ninth, right after I brought some of my friends to our seats, the skies opened up!! We didn't leave our seats until the Ump called for the tarp to be put on. Avery Rose was SO excited to get to see that! The funny thing was at some point the rain stopped so they took the tarp off but not 2 minutes later it started raining again and they had to put the tarp back on. The rain delay landed up being about 65 minutes. At 11:00 p.m. Avery Rose ate her second Dodger Dog of the night. They startd the game back up around 11:30 p.m. We did lose but it was an exciting game to watch.

The finale was the awesome firework show that we got to watch from the field. Avery Rose was so excited to be standing where all of the action happens. She couldn't stop looking around soaking everything in. She tells me "I'm so glad I am here!" How cute is she??? The firework show ended after midnight. It was a long game but Avery Rose and Madyson did great and were so happy to be there.
