Barnstormers Game

Believe it or not, we have our very own baseball team here in Lancaster County....they're called the "Barnstormers"!! A few years ago a beautiful, family friendly baseball stadium was built in town, about 15 minutes from here. It's such a FUN place to go to. You can visit their site if you'd like to see more pictures or learn more about them! I'm delighted with the decision to bring more life to downtown Lancaster. We're thankful to live in such a culturally unique place....within a few shorts miles, the rollings hills and the Amish settlements.

This was our first baseball game as a family....actually, this was the first baseball game for ALL of the children....I saved their ticket stubs! It was nothing fancy, but it was their first game! Upon entering the employees proceeded to drive every parent crazy in the head by giving each child a cow bell....yes, a COW BELL. I wanted to kindly decline, but hey, it's all for the love of the game right?? Needless to say, since that day these two cow bells have mysteriously-on-purpose-accidentally disappeared!! Below is Luke with his cow bell....
We ate entirely too much food and consumed more sugar then a human being should in a two hour period...but it sure tasted good going down!
We had great seats and the boys took it all in!Paisley sat in her seat amused by the people around her, the new sights and sounds and smells wore her out and before too long she was sound asleep!
Tyler wanted to take some pictures, this was one that turned out pretty neat! My friend Tina has inspired me to periodically hand over my camera to my 4 year old!
Every Friday night they have fireworks. I can say we were honestly surprised at how GREAT they were. Three times we thought they were over, but they just kept going and going. Way to go Lancaster! Thanks for the great night....we'll be back for sure!!

Yay family Stoltzfus! The most fun I've had in awhile was a bit ago at the "Bark in the Park" night at the B-stormers... my mom, dad, sister in law, niece, nephew, and our THREE DOGS! All the dogs got to hand out in the grass areas and go on the field... it was just a blast :). Did you guys see the kids area w/ the full size carousel? Let's go together sometime! Love and hugs -- mb
