Lansing Lugnuts Game!
Last Monday Night we went to the Lansing Lugnuts game. James was their Bat Kid for the evening! Kyle's Mom Carolyn works for Farm Bureau and is able to put the kids names in a drawing every summer for a chance to be a bat kid. Brayden did it last summer. So James received a bag of goodies with a lugnuts shirt, autographed ball and a program. He and Hannah got to play catch on the field before the game started and he was able to throw out one of the first pitches of the evening too! He also took water out to the umpire during one of the innings. Since it was the week of Hannah's Birthday I had her name put on the big screen and she was also picked to go out on the field and everyone in the ball park sang "Happy Birthday" to her! She was so excited and embarrassed at the same time. Since our seats our right next to the lugnuts dugout we got a ton of used balls and James and Brayden both were given a used bat that was cracked or broken during the game! Plus they all got a ton of autographs. We had a great evening and the Lugnuts won the game 15-1!
