weekend baseball & plant shopping

Friday night after work I headed down to North Caroline to watch some baseball and see Kyle. I got there in the top of the ninth, but I got there!
It was a beautiful night for baseball and they finished up with enough time for us to go out and get a late dinner. The next day's game was an evening game, so we went out exploring for a bit before. I always look up greenhouses where Kyle will be, so he appeased me and we stopped by Fairview Garden Center. I oohed and ahhed over all of the plants. Ultimately I didn't find any wishlist plants, but it was a gorgeous greenhouse. The plants looked so happy!
Kyle really liked the more colorful outdoor plants. He liked the yellow shrimp plant (Pachystachys lutea) a lot and I think they'd look great along a fence line!
We had a great lunch and stopped at Lowe's since it was close to where we ate. I was wandering through the plant section and telling Kyle about all the plants (he doesn't share my love of plants so he just kind of said "okay...") and then I spotted this Cebu Blue and gasped loudly. He said the woman behind me jerked around as if I was having an aneurysm. After a little begging and stating that I HADN'T SEEN THESE ANYWHERE AT HOME, he bought it for me. ♥
We headed off to the ballpark and since I get there with him, I'm usually there an hour and a half before first pitch. My routine is to check out the concession options and find the bathroom in unfamiliar parks, then sit and do crosswords until game time.
I was able to sit with a lovely family who are also part of the baseball/umpiring world and I had a great time talking umpiring and baseball with them. Kyle did a great job working the game and the stadium there is really nice. I can't talk at length due to job constraints, but it was a great weekend! His being closer this season has helped a lot with visits and I get to see a lot more baseball, which is always a plus.

How was your weekend?

baseball weekend

 
Saturday I went up to Frederick to see Kyle and watch a baseball game. It was a doubleheader since Friday was postponed, so that gave me more time to watch Kyle and to spend massive amounts of money on food and stuff my face. I ended up scoring a front row seat behind the plate! The games went well, but in the sixth inning of the second game it started pouring. Luckily I'd brought an old umbrella my boss had given me and it was big enough to keep me and one of the player's girlfriends dry. She sat behind me during the game so I invited her to share and we got to see the Keys come back and win both games that night, both wins happening in the bottom of the 7th!
I always look up the concession offerings before I visit parks and had picked out what I wanted to try. Here are my spoils. I started off with a helmet full of chili cheese fries that were really good, and I believe they make their own chili there instead of that weird canned chili. Next I tried the crab dip, which was really salty and kind of disappointing for Maryland. But the big star was the fried green beans! They were amazing!

The next park I'm visiting doesn't have any offerings that are super exciting, but I'm sure I'll find something. ♥
