We were going into extra innings, but Olive didn't mind! She was such a trooper, she hung in until the last out.
Cubs Win!! Cubs Win!! 5 to 4 in 10 innings.
We didn't spend much time in the hotel, because game time Sunday was 1:05. The forecast called for sunny skies and a high of 93 degrees! We covered her in sunscreen, plopped on her hat and we were off to cheer them on to another win.
We were so lucky Sunday to have AMAZING tickets! We were on the 8th row right by the on deck circle directly behind the Cubs dugout. The only bad thing was the sun beaming down on us!
By about the top of the third inning when her little cheeks were the color of her dress, we realized her hat was making her hot. So, we tried to cover her head with her burp cloth instead,which she thought was pretty silly.
Olive and Mommy had to make several trips up to sit in the shade during the game. Considering that Stephen and I were burning up, she did amazingly well. Not much fussing at all!
Before Olive melted, we decided to let her try some "Strawberry Lemon Chill". She thought it was delicious. (FYI: It is best to not look at the sugar content on those containers, just go with it!)
By the end of the 8th inning, she was done. I took her to the air conditioned bathroom and stripped her down to her diaper. She sat on the changing table so happy! :) We changed clothes and watched the last inning on the TV in the shade. She had a great time playing on the picnic table.
We don't think it is coincidence that the Cubbies won both games 5-4 and that Olive is 9 months old! She is definitely the good luck charm! We will be contacting the team management to see if they are interested in putting us on salary to travel with the team to continue the winning!
We had such a great weekend! Olive was crashed out before we even made it to the interstate and she slept from Arlington to Ardmore. She was a great traveler and we can't wait for our next trip.

Mommy and Olive checking out the turtles.
Barney was very interested in the ducks! Olive thought they were pretty neat too.
As we were walking around the last turn, the tornado sirens started going off. You can see the clouds in the background rolling in. We called Granny to have her check the weather to make sure we weren't going to be blown away. Luckily, the severe weather was on the far east side of Canadian County but for some reason they sounded the sirens throughout the county. It made us walk a little faster to the car! :)
Olive was wiped out from our big adventure to the park.
Thank you Dano and Honey for the day of fun! We can't wait for many more park adventures!
