ANGEL GAME and BANNER PARADE



We had a blast today! It was our first outing since I've become their leader and everything was perfect. The weather couldn't have been nicer, the girls all got along perfectly, we had a lot of fun and we got a cool patch.

I got to know the girls a little better and I can honestly say that I love each and every one of them.



After what seemed like forever, it was finally the day to go to the Angel Stadium for a day and night full of fun.



It was the first time everyone got to see our cool new Troop banner.

Thanks go out to Maureen White for purchasing the banner for the Troop. The girls all said they really liked it and was happier with it then the one they were going to make.



The girls were really excited about getting to go on to the field and walk in the banner parade.

I have to admit, I was a bit excited myself. After all, I have never been on the field of Angel Stadium. It's not often you get an invitation to walk down there.



We had to wait outside after we checked in and that turned out to be a great chance to snap some photos of the girls.

Haili was always ready with a smile. No matter how long I would wait to snap the photo she had her smile ready. She was so cute.

But then, sadly I caught her with her eyes closed! Some photographer I am.



Nikki was excited about getting to hold the banner. She had fun running around wrapping it around me and we ran around together out in the parking lot showing off our banner.

She really wanted to hold one of the ends of the banner. So of course, she got to.



Poor Trinity. Yesterday, she cut her foot pretty badly and she was in a lot of pain having to walk on it today. But, she was a trooper and held up well.



Jesse cracked me up with her hat that was to big for her. She seemed to love wearing it and even though it was hard to see her face most of the time she looked darling in it.



Even though we had to wait for over two hours, the girls were all very well behaved and I was proud of them.



Still waiting in the parking lot before the parade starts.



Don't the girls look sweet in their hats?



Just hanging out and goofing off.



Still waiting...



The crowd just kept getting bigger and bigger as we got closer to the time to line up for the parade.



It was finally time for us to line up and get ready to walk the field!!!



The music was on, people were cheering and as we walked the field the girls danced a bit, waved a bit and most of all had a great time!



Troop 746 loves the ANGELS. That's right girls. Show off those shirts. You look great in them.



OK, so we had seats so high up that only the blimp was higher then us. Who cares. We still had fun.

Plus, we had plenty of extra seats around us so everyone could move around and sit where they wanted to.



Haili didn't give up hope of maybe catching a fly ball. Hey, stranger things have happened in life. You just never know. Plus, a girl scout is always prepared! Way to go Haili!



The best part of the night was getting together with family and friends and sharing time... oh ya, and food. Lots and lots of food.



I should have known better then to sit in front of these two. I got bopped on the head with big fan fingers, things tossed in my lap and even had rice some how find it's way into my hair. Only to have giggles come from them right after these things happen.

Of course, they had no idea how those things happened to me.



High on sugar and full of excitement, the girls laughed, talked, joked and had a great time. They all got along so well.

I hope they also made some memories that will last a life time. I know I did.



Yes, even those who sit in the last row, way up high, can still be a Number One Fan!



I love this picture. Even with all the fun going on in the stands, the girls, every now and then, actually watched and enjoyed the game.



They were actually interested in how fast the ball was being thrown, who was on base and if the Angels were going to be able to get the other team out before they had a chance to run home.



It was then time to say good night and good bye. Wish everyone a safe trip home and make plans to see each other again in just a few days for our meeting.

I'm really happy we went. I think the girls were too.
