Take Me Out to the Ballgame...

Last weekend we went to go see the Carolina Mudcats play some baseball!

I'd been wanting to go to a baseball game around here for some time now and I thought I'd found a way for us to go free...believe it or not.

I had purchased a groupon for box seats at a Carolina Mudcats came for $10.  Just so happens that I had a coupon for $10 off your first purchase with groupon so I used it when I purchased the tickets which made them FREE.

Well, I forgot to read the fine print.  You can't use groupons on the weekend.  Wah, wah!  :(

So after figuring that out, my husband still talked me into going even though we wouldn't get to use our groupon.  We also took our friends, Chad and Jodi.  :)

So we all piled up in Betty (what I call our little car) and headed out to Zebulon to watch the Mudcats play ball! 

And we got there late.  Because my hubby took a left instead of taking a right.  We might have gone 10 miles out of the way, but it's okay because we got there.

You better believe I gave him a hard time about turning left instead of right.  He gets to talking and doesn't realize where he is. Or at least that's what I think.  ;)  Love you, husband!

Nonetheless, we got there.  That's all that mattered.  :)

We found some seats and took in our surroundings.

We cheered on the Mudcats, saw some good plays, and watched some silly games in between innings.  And would you believe they even played Rocky Top there too?!  Jon and I were so surprised that we moved to North Carolina and they were playing a Tennessee song there.  You better believe I was singing at the top of my lungs.  And I think I was the only person there singing as well as the only person who knew to throw their arm in the part and scream whoo!  My husband loved that. :)

We also tried boiled peanuts for the first time.  Chad and Jodi LOVE them and we had never had them before so they insisted that we try them. 

We gave them a whirl.  I wasn't a fan.  I thought they tasted like beans.  :)  I probably will never eat one again.
I just plan on letting this girl eat all of the boiled peanuts for me:
Here is Muddy the Mudcat running the bases between innings...

And the Mudcats won!!!!!!

Even thougth I took this picture early on, they really did win.

We had a lot of fun last weekend!  A great night with great friends.

Now we'll just have to go back sometime Sunday through Thursday when I can use that Groupon!  :)

Have a Happy Week!
