For some reason the photos don't look that clear when they are in this smaller mode.  So please click on them so they will get larger for you and much more clear. 

I can't believe a year has gone by already and it was once again time for us to join in the fun at the Angel Game and to walk the infield during the Girl Scout Banner Parade.

The girls were excited and had been looking forward to this day.  They really liked their matching shirts (thank you Sara) and the Girl Scout 100 year Anniversary flags came in on time for them to wave during the parade.

We were pretty lucky this year because even though we were right in the middle of the summer, it wasn't that hot out. 

This year, the time we had to wait outside in the parking lot, didn't seem to be that bad.  The time went by quickly and before we knew it, it was time to line up and go inside.

Since Nikki is the Troop Assistant leader this month, she picked the order that the girls stood in to hold the banner.

As we headed towards the infield, we could hear the crowd cheering and the announcer greeting us.

I have to admit, it is fun walking out there and seeing everyone waving at you and clapping for us as we walked by.

As we walked around, we tried to find Trinity's Grandma and Grandpa, they went to their seats to watch us.  It's kind of hard to figure out where to look as we are walking. 

Then we looked all the way up and low and behold, we saw Grandma waving at us.  We all waved back to let her know we saw here.

If you look at the top tier, right in the middle you too can see her waving at us.

We walked by the dugout and saw a few of the Angel guys waiting to play.

A few more on the grass.  As we walked by them we all yelled "We LOVE the Angeles".  It made the guys smile and one yelled back "We love the Girl Scouts".

Once the parade was over, we had to walk all the way around the stadium to the gates we needed to go into and make it to our seats.

So, of course, we stopped for a cute photo of the girls under the big Angel Hat.

Then another quick stop to say hi to Mickey Mouse.

We all got stuff to eat for dinner.  Seems everyone had worked up an appetite.

There was typical baseball game food.  Pizza, candy, nachos, peanuts and yes, even cracker jacks.

It was actually a fun game.  Tied pretty much most of the game until finally they went into extra innings.

I think the girls loved when they flashed "MAKE SOME NOISE" because they really got into it and made lots of noise.

They all said they had a lot of fun and I heard lots of laughter and saw a lot of smiles, so I'm sure they did.

After the girls all bought a little something to remember the game by, we decided it was time to head home.  It was in the 11th inning and they were ready to head home.  So, we all said our good nights and started our long walk down the stairs.

It turns out the Angels ended up winning in the 12th inning.  Jesse, Elizabeth and Michelle hung around a little while longer as there was a concert after the game.  The rest of us were almost home by the time the game ended.

We had great night and this now means we have an "official" yearly outing at the Angel game.  We are already thinking about the fun we will have next year.
