We have long been wanting to go see the Arkansas Travelers play. Scheduling has been a HUGE problem for us, though. Most games don't start until 7:00, and that's just a bit late for kids our age to start watching a game. I can only imagine the exhaustion and whininess! It seems that all of the afternoon games are either on Sunday or Wednesday, and that's just a wee bit hard for a pastor's family to swing. But, this past Sunday we didn't have church on Sunday evening. So, we made plans as a family to go see the Travs play. Pretty soon we discovered that we weren't the only ones from our church with such plans!
Although we didn't travel with the bigger group because we had other things we needed to take care of, we did end up with seats in the same section. It was a pretty fun group!
The game ended at 8:00, and fireworks from Riverfest were supposed to start at 9:00. We were going to be allowed to stay in the ballpark to watch the fireworks, but the kids were already worn out from being there since just before 5:00. So, we went ahead and left. We headed over to TCBY for a nice cold treat.
After ice cream, we headed back toward the river and managed to catch the fireworks from the van as we drove around. A beautiful ending to a fun evening!
