Out to the Ballgame

We were able to visit PNC Park and watch the Nationals take on the Pirates on Sunday afternoon. It was a beautiful day at the ballpark for the kids to take some pictures and learn about the finer points of Major League Baseball. You know, things like the free giveaway, the Great Pierogi Race, and a bench-clearing brawl.

Across the River

The Bucs ended up losing 10-7, but it was still a great afternoon of baseball.

More pictures from the Nats @ Pirates (both ours and the kids) are on Flickr.
