Blue Jays Game

Filed under: News — Phil @ 8:36 pm

Today was an eventful day. My brother Kevin secured some tickets to the Blue Jays game versus the Cleveland Indians today. So the kids and I packed up and headed south for a day of adventure.  What a day it was.

First, we stopped for a geocache along Hwy 400. Kendra found it quickly and we were off again.

Then we hung around the Yorkdale Mall for a while waiting for the rest of the crew to arrive. They would eventually get there and we were joined by Kevin, Brian, my dad, Uncle Doug, Adam and Stuart.

We waited a long time to get tokens for the subway and hopped on the Red Rocket for the trip to Union Station. Kendra and Javen love to sit right up front so that’s where we headed. Just after we got underway, the driver opened up the door and chatted with us. It was really cool to see what they do and how they do it. The kids even got a first-hand look at the instruments and they were even allowed to honk the horn!

Once we got downtown, we were met by Heather and our party was complete. Then we began the search for some street meat. It didn’t take long and soon we were chowing down hot dogs and sausages.  Now on to the game after picking up the giant foam finger which should be required at all sporting events.

Today was a Jr Jays day so the kids got to do some really fun stuff. They got passports stamped and were rewarded with Roy Halladay bobble head. They also got a Blue Jay WebKinz.  Cool stuff.  Oh yeah, and check out the picture I took with the kids standing next to the good Doc Halladay. Finally, after the game, the kids were allowed to go on the field and run the bases! What an opportunity.

We rode the subway back to Yorkdale and headed home. We all had a fantastic time.  Make sure to check out the pictures in the Photo Gallery.  If you have Facebook, you can see some pictures that Heather took in one of her galleries, too.
