We stayed up, and when I say we, I mean all of us here at our house, to watch Game 7 of the World Series between the St. Louis Cardinals and the Texas Rangers. It was a great game and at the end of the night, the Cardinals were victorious.
Living in what is pretty much Cardinal Country, it was all everyone was talking about at school yesterday and with Bradley being a lifelong Cardinal fan, I was hoping they would pull off a win.
And how much do I love this picture with all the guys and their little ones. Such a special thing to see families incorporated into the celebration.
Sure enough, somewhere between 10 and 11 last night, they finally won. We made the kids sits down to watch the last 3 outs and it was so much fun. Bradley asked Ava if she remembered the last time the Cardinals won the World Series. She was just a couple of months old in 2006 and Bradley talks about how he held her on a few late nights and they watched the World Series together.
It is sweet knowing that he has those memories of Ava and that they correspond to something he has enjoyed his whole life.
It was just an exciting night and I am glad to have experienced it as a family.
