America's Favorite Pastime

The Washington Nationals were playing Colorado
My brother is a huge baseball fan, so an important tourist destination in the Washington, D.C. area was Nationals Park for a baseball game.

The Washington Nationals were playing the Colorado Rockies.

My lovely sister-in-law Kirsti
A fun moment for the family was when Bryce Harper, the Mormon ball player, came up to bat. A native of Las Vegas, Nevada, Bryce is an outfielder who was the Nationals' Rookie of the Year in 2012.  He also was a team All-Star in 2012 and in 2013.

It was a close game.  It looks like it was rather hot there in the stadium, too!

We have a funny family.  When my brother posted, "Nothing like a Nats game on a hot summer night!", his son (in Ottawa) posted, "I didn't know you guys were going to the game! I'm listening to it right now."

To this, his daughter Linnea responded, "You couldn't hear us on the broadcast?"

After the game!
Of course, one has to take some time to clown around after the game.

 Boys will be boys!
Jay, Kirsti, Christian, Nils (looking so much like my dad it's not funny) and Jeff being silly!
Oh, yes!  The Washington Nationals won!
