Take me out to the ball game
Well, it was a big day for me. I did something unplanned and spontaneous! That's right, I let go of control for 1 day and took Ryan to a Detroit Tigers vs NY Yankees baseball game. A patient's family gave me 4 tickets that they couldn't use and after splitting them with another nurse and cancelling Ryan's plans we were off!
We had a great time! The weather was perfect, great seats, and good company.
Crazy story though. Toward the end of the game a siren started to go off and we didn't think anything of it until they made an announcement that said there was an emergency and we needed to evacuate the stadium! We all looked at each other to figure it out. We thought maybe tornado but the winds hadn't picked up. Anyway, we got our stuff and waited for the crowd to start moving when the players just started playing again! So we sat down and enjoyed the last 2 innings. Weird huh? We still don't know what happened but about 3/4 of the fans left.
After each homerun these fountains went off
Pretty cute merry-go-round Tigers styleCouldn't ask for a better view from free tickets!
