Beckham claimed this was the best weekend ever and asked me to make a “slide show” which is 4th grader for “blog post.”
The day started at the Manhattan Farmer’s Market where he found a tomato “as big as Berkley’s head”
Then our awesome neighbors invited us to their K-State Spring Game Tailgate and also gave Beckham and I tickets for the game.
At halftime we went down to watch Isaac run in a half time event and following some sage wisdom Eric Tippin taught us, we just pretended like we belonged and found seats to watch from the sidelines. I saw this picture on Instagram later and there we are, sitting on the ground next to the yard marker people. I don’t expect we’ll get seats this good for the regular season.
Here Beckham and Willie hang out and caught up. Willie doesn’t talk much, but he’s a great listener.
While down there we went to join the cheerleaders for a few cheers as well.
Laura took the car to go host a bridal shower so when we walked out of the stadium we had no wheels. He suggested we get some Call Hall Ice Cream so off we went taking back routes to Call Hall. Along the way we found this pond at Jardine on campus. He spotted bullfrogs so we began trying to catch them with our hands.
Once we ran out of hands we continued the journey to Call Hall.
However, the line was about 60 people long. You know… Tourist and all. We did get a to go container to put his bullfrog in though.
We journeyed further across campus and near Hale Library we discovered a Green Apple Bike. They are free to borrow bikes so we did just that. Only with only one bike that left Beckham sitting on the handlebars holding his bullfrog in a to go food box. We headed to Chris and Rudy and Sam’s house to get tape to hold the frog in so he wouldn’t get out at the Cold Stone when we got ice cream in Aggieville. Best part of the ride was when a cop tailed us and we feared we may have violated a few laws though we couldn’t put our finger on any of them.
Finally ice cream! A senior aged woman kept looking at the frog in the container while she ate ice cream with her husband, but she never asked about it.
He slept well that night.
Sunday we woke up and got to worship the Lord at Church and then Becks had Sunday School with his great teachers, the Dunnings!
That afternoon we headed to our first K-State Baseball game of the season. We tried a few different seating locations.
This one was good for snagging a foul ball.
They had hung out the day before, but Becks and Willie caught up again.
Then we went searching for a home run ball and found these makeshift outfield seats.
Felt like stories I’ve read about people watching Babe Ruth over the wall of a stadium.
Here is the actual view
The game was on ESPN3 and I was curious if you could see us on TV. You sure could, there we are on top the wall of this home run.
We ended up with four foul balls and one home run ball.
After the game we stopped by Dara’s where all slurpie sizes are 99 cents. So he went all out.
Caught some more frogs
Played in waterfall and that’s a super great guys weekend.
