Mariners and Funland...You Can't Get Much Better Than That!


"Am I gonna get an Ichiro Bobblehead, mama?" Imagine that being asked about a million times, and try to guess which one of my children was asking this the entire way to Seattle. Yup, it was my sweet Cooper - he is Ichiro's biggest fan, didn't you know? Haha!

We really enjoyed ourselves last Friday and Saturday, and the boys were very well-behaved the whole time, which was wonderful. The weather couldn't have been any nicer, and we all came home feeling happy and joyful. (Except for poor Hunter, who was enduring some pretty nasty coughing and an earache).

The game was one of the best the M's have played this season. It didn't start out very good, but they had a big inning in the 5th, and ended up winning! We had great seats and pleasant fans around us - no one with stinky garlic fries and no one drinking too much alcohol. Coop even managed to get some peanuts from the guy behind us and some cotton candy from the lady to the left of us. He just said, "Hey, I want some of that!", and they just handed it over...the kid is too stinkin' cute, that's the problem. Haha!

We spent the night with our friends, Lee & Pam, and then went over to Funland and had the best time. Go Karts, Bumper Boats, mini golf and lots of arcade games. We were there for about 3 hours and were going, going, going the whole time. Everyone was ready to come home, though, because when the tokens finally ran out we didn't even hear any complaints, which doesn't happen very often. :) We'll definitely be going back there...in the summer when we can actually shoot water at people while we're in the Bumper Boats!
Hunter was excited until he realized he couldn't drive his own car, then his smile turned into a frown...
Handsome Coop and Handsome Daddy...
We tried to go fast, but I had it floored and it wasn't fast enough...we were passed by several teenagers, much to Hunter's embarrassment!
Hooray! Finally something Hunter could do without an adult!

How fun!! I was actually thinking about you on Friday while I was watching the game! So wish we could have been there. Ben is a HUGE M's fan and we are really hoping to get to a game or two this year. Especially since Griff's back!! Loved looking at your pictures, just like I always do!

What a fun trip! Such great pictures ~ you can tell you all had such a fun time. Luke is looking at the pictures with me and trying to remember Hunter ~ he thinks he does. They were good pals, with they could see each other! He is also a bit envious of the Mariners part of the trip. lol
