Tonight we took Henry and Eleanor to their first basketball game, Pacers vs. Cavaliers. Andy’s work had a pre-game party on the practice court, where Henry ate as much as an NBA player for supper, including at least three cookies.
The kids went nuts for Boomer, the Pacers mascot. Even shy Eleanor shook hands and sat on his knee.
The kids also went nuts for one of Andy’s colleagues and her daughter. They were instants BFFs after hopping like frogs with the kids at the party. To Henry and Eleanor’s delight they sat by us at the game; the kids were quite the social butterflies chatting and playing.
Cookies, new friends, LeBron James, free keychains with blue lights that got flashed and flashed and FLASHED, Boomer, experiencing another first with the kids: a good night.
