Play Date with Uncle Paul
On Father's Day, when we went to a Hudson Valley Renegades game, Duncan asked us if we could go to a game with Paul. We called Paul right away to see if he was game, and he loved the idea, so last Sunday, we met him at Dutchess Stadium. Jamie and I watched the baseball game. Duncan and Paul ate hot dogs and ice cream, strolled around hugging strange creatures in costumes (Winnie the Pooh, Mickey Mouse, Rascal and Rookie Raccoon), posed for photos, stole each other's noses, and were very surprised at the bottom of the 8th when the game was nearly over. Both of them were clearly despondent when we walked back to the car. However, it turns out that the stadium is about an hour drive for us and 30 minutes for Paul so we hope to meet there more often in the future.
