Candy and Matt are two of the biggest fans of the comic strip Peanuts I know. So it was a special treat to be able to attend the 50th Anniversary Peanuts Day with them at the San Francisco Giants game this weekend. After putting on our orange and black team outfits (I wore Matt’s jersey) to show support, we began our day taking BART up to San Francisco.
We happened to have seats that had us riding backwards on BART. Our baby was moving around a lot perhaps enjoying this new directional movement and was kicking a lot. I had Matt put his hand over where I was feeling the movement and he felt a few kicks as well.
After riding BART we got on a MUNI bus. It was so crowded that were not any seats available and everyone had to crowd in together tight.
Still, it was a generally good, if cozy ride, to AT & T Ballpark.
The first 30,000 fans received the giveaway bobblehead on the left. Those who bought special tickets also received one in a plain white box on the right.
Though mine fell over almost instantly, it was a great sandwich.
Another vendor we love sells amazing Bloody Mary’s. Candy asked if they could make one a Virgin Mary. The server joked he could but to not tell the person drinking it. I assured him I knew it would be as I’m expecting. Even without alcohol it was delicious and with my bigger cup, I think I received more drink overall as well.
The park also had Shark Week fin cap covers so Matt and I each wore one for part of the game.
Matt tried to feel the baby moving during the 7th Inning Stretch, but s/he slept through it.
The Giants tied up the game 4-4, yet the game ended up going into extra innings. It was time to whip up the crowd into cheering for a rally.
For the first time I can remember, I started turning my hat inside out for the rally before Matt did.
In the 12th inning, they did, in fact, rally and win the game!
When we were back at home it was time to add one set of our bobbleheads to the shelf where Matt has his Giants bobbleheads displayed.
They both look great on our shelf.
It was an amazing day, and I’m so glad we went and had fun. The next time we return to AT & T park it will be with our baby in a stroller.
