When in Rome... I mean Michigan

We're starting to become the locals around here so we figured we might as well act like them. For the first baseball game of the season they have all you can eat and drink for just $15. It was pretty sweet. Worrying that they'd run out of food quickly, we grabbed as much as we could carry along with the baby and the diaper bag, and found our seats. They obviously didn't run out of food so we kept going back for more and more....and more....and more. Pretzels, BBQ pork sandwhiches, dip n dots, lemon chill, nachos, fries, pizza, ice cream, and several sodas. I couldn't believe people were still getting beer when everything else was free and one beer was over $7. Dummies...
After the game I grabbed Brandens 3 cans of Mountain Dew and headed for the exit. (Here in MI you get 10 cents per can. They're a hot commodity around here, you never see them on the side of the road.) Next thing I know we've got a bag and are collecting cans laying all over the stadium. We felt like such bums but it was so funny we just kept going and going. Other people started copying us too.

Here's the boys with our 2 big bags of cans. We had over 255 cans! We thought we were gonna get mugged by the bums outside of the stadium. They were really eyeballing us and one even came and asked for them in exchange for a dollar. He was higher than a kite.

Thanks for inviting us Riley, Chris, and Arista! We had a blast!

p.s. here's my disclaimer for anyone that feels this is offensive. If you don't like it, stop reading my blog.

That looks like fun! I'm sad to say that after 3 years we have still not gone to a Lugnuts way to get out there!

Haha, you are too cute. I would've been far too lazy to pick up all those cans but an extra $25 sounds great! And all-you-can-eat Dippin' Dots? Yes please!
