A Lot of Pujols

I am finally getting around to posting pics from our great (child-free) weekend. Most of Saturday was spent shopping in O'Fallon, St. Peters, and Hazelwood (at the wonderful Mills Mall!). We ate too much for supper at good ol' Longhorn, then crashed in our hotel room. It has actually been "jeans" weather, and rainy much of the time, so swimming in the outdoor pool did not seem like such a good thing.

Sunday we ate breakfast and headed to the stadium. It was "Pujols Bobblehead Day", and we knew the lines would be long. We got there about 1 1/2 hours before the gates opened and were pretty close to the front of the line. People were saying the bobbleheads were pre-selling on ebay for $80 each, but we will be keeping ours! LOL Matt loves them too much.

The Cards won, 3-1... not a lot of scoring, so not an incredibly exciting game. We had good tickets (10 rows behind home-plate), so I got decent pics of Pujols.

There was a special even that day for kids with Down syndrome in the STL area. This is a pic of Pujols standing with a little boy (with Downs) on 1st base, during the National Anthem. The little boy is decked out in a mini-Pujols uniform. I thought it was so sweet! Albert signed his jersey and ball for him ☺

Thank God these seats have backs on them! Last game I went to, it was in the old Busch Stadium on the bleachers. I was 7 or 8 months pregnant, no back rest, and tortured the whole game!

Hubby was just thrilled to be there, and I think he had a very happy 31st b-day. He kept thanking me all day long for doing this.
