Not So Lazy Days: We're outta here...
Because I had a coupon from Recyclebank, we went to Camden to see the Riversharks, a minor league baseball team, play.
And, because we were at a ballgame it was hot. It always seems to feel like the hottest day imaginable whenever we go to a baseball game.
At first, the kids (and some of the kids behind us-- it was camp day) thought the Riversharks were the Phillies because they too wear white with red pin stripes.
Probably the first half of the first inning was fun, then the heat really started getting to the kids. After the first inning ended, we took the kids up for refreshments and wandered the shaded concourse.
We found a play area, but to our dismay, it was $5 to play. Play areas are free even at major league parks. In fact alot of things were more expensive at this park than other minor league parks, like the one in Lakewood.
We ended up leaving in the 5th inning before it ended up costing more money by staying.
About the Not So Lazy Days series
I've challenged myself to find a new activity to do five days a week every week of the kids' summer vacation. Activities will fall under one of three categories: Arts & Crafts, Sports & Games or Field Trips. Follow me on Twitter @readallaboutsam for immediate updates on posts!
