Take Me Out to the Ballgame....
DH entered at work and won four free tickets for a a night at the ballpark. Off we went to watch the minor league 'Wild Things' play the Gateway Grizzlies. It's a smaller ball park, full of fun activities for the kids, with a nice hometown feel. Landon is just shy of two so he got in without a ticket at all. It promised to be a fun night of footlong hotdogs with generous squirts of mustard and catsup, followed by soft-serve ice cream, while we sat right behind first base, with loads of action.

Alas! When he caught sight of the Wild Thing mascot - a big furry creature about seven feet tall (i.e. costume with big eye holes, likely worn by young girl about 5'2" who keeps the crowd going), he was terrified! As soon as he saw this creature, he was all eyes, keeping track of where Wild Thing was. Normally a light-hearted little guy, dancing and singing and jumping all over the place, the possibility of this furry creature coming anywhere near kept him quiet and very close.

Sure enough, Wild Thing came over to visit for a bit. When we all tried to encourage him to say 'hello' his only words were a very strong "Bye!". After the emotional flooding event, the payoff was lots of snuggles for Papa.
