This year Matt and I joined Candy for the fifth year in a row for our annual tradition of watching the San Jose Giants on their 4th of July Home game and then watching the fireworks over the stadium. Though I’ve been to the stadium many times this was the first time I saw these logos on the surrounding fence walls, so I made sure we got a photo with them.
We all love this holiday so and in Candy and my case, we enjoy dressing up in the red white and blue colors. I wore clip ins from TeamCrush Boutique who I reviewed for the orange and black clip ons I have for Giants games. Candy and I wore matching “I love USA” necklaces. She wore her Peanuts inspired Giants shirt. For the first time ever, my Giants jerseys don’t button over my bump, so Matt lent me his.
The stadius full of history including banners of current San Francisco Giants who were once San Jose Giants.
A statue of Gigante welcomed us to the park along with holiday themed balloons.
Inside these panels show the names of players who were called up to the SF Giants. This is always a favorite spot of mine to see.
As is this sign as Willie Mays is a favorite player of so many baseball fans, myself included.
I just love watching Matt and Candy at the game and how every moment they are.
We truly had an amazing view for the game.
A young family was next to us. To my delight the dad had a Tactical Baby Diaper Bag on it, one of the ones I’ve researched and put on our registry as it would work well for Matt or for me. The dad told me that even though his daughter was now five, he still uses it to transport family things.
As usual we had to take a selfie at the game.
For the first time ever that I’ve seen, they chose adults to race Gigante. Also for the first time, he won.
The Giants were down so Matt reversed our hats to be rally hats.
Unfortunately, the still lost the game.
The fans were given a chance to toss tennis balls on the field for a chance to win prizes.
Then my favorite part, the fireworks started. It was the longest and best show I’ve seen at this event. The moon was positioned perfectly and really helped show them off.
A great time was had by all. I’m so thrilled the next time we go back to this, we will have our baby with us.
