Take Me Out to the Ballgame

Tuesday, June 21, 2016

One of the best parts about growing up in a vacation spot is all the exploring we get to do when we go home!
If you follow me on snapchat (aleighjoy) you probably saw we took a little vacation to San Diego a week and a half ago!
Hunter and I are high school sweethearts and my parents just moved, so our parents now live literally 3 minutes away.
It is so perfect because we get to see both families in just one trip!
Even though we grew up in San Diego, it is even more fun going back to visit because we get to act like tourists and explore places we didn't all the time while living there.
Before moving to Utah, I had a full time job which hardly left any time to explore like I would have wanted to.
We have made it more of a goal to do fun things while there now and one of the super fun activities we did this time around was go to a Padres game!

Hunter loves baseball and the whole atmosphere so he was super excited to go.
We knew it would be a little difficult with our busy body toddler so we brought grandma and grandpa along too ;)
I had forgotten how beautiful the ballpark is!
It is literally right in the heart of San Diego.
It is right downtown and you can see the San Diego Bay, all the sky scrapers downtown, the Coronado Bridge, and Coronado island.
Is that not the coolest location?
The park also has a grass field where you can sit and have your kids run around.
There is also "the beach" where there is sand to play in. So cool!
You will also find mini fields for children to play on during the game!
Petco Park is both family friendly and adult friendly, I just love that there is something for everyone. 

Now let's talk about food!
I couldn't believe all the different food options!
When I think of a baseball game I think of hotdogs, popcorn, peanuts, and you know... cracker jack ;)
However, there was literally something for every single tastebud.
I still stuck with my (yummy) hot dog but the street tacos, ice cream sandwiches, and philly cheesesteaks were all super tempting!
Oaklyn stuck with popcorn and water and seemed to really enjoy it ;)

It was so fun to be there as a family and to meet up with one of Hunter's best friends while there!
Oaklyn and I did a whole lot of walking around the park and I loved exploring all of it... as did she ;)
Hunter and his dad were also super excited to see a home run from the Padres!
Baseball games are such a fun family activity, we will definitely be headed back another time!
Thank you San Diego Padres for an awesome afternoon!

All my love,
Aleigh Joy
