friends and baseball

over the weekend, our favorite nyc couple, brandon and celeste came to visit and celebrate brandon's birthday.
of course we ate like crazy (crazy good food) and went to a nationals v. giants baseball game.

i do admit, i love baseball games (in real life). i like that baseball is slightly slow-paced so you can be social, be outside and also be entertained all at once.
not to mention, tickets to see the nats play are pretty cheap!

my favorite thing about nationals baseball is the presidents' race that happens in the middle of the 4th inning.
the presidential mascots (dressed up like george washington, thomas jefferson, abraham lincoln and teddy roosevelt) have a race. it's hilarious mostly to see those giant heads running on the field--- but also because teddy never ever wins! i want teddy to win!
just another little quirky thing i love about dc

and also, i love our friends, brandon and celeste. i'm super glad they got married and that they don't live too far in the nyc.

i always wonder if the people who dress up as mascots are in fact really shy in real life????

I agree. Baseball games in person are great. On tv, they're kind of boring though. Lol.
