Giants vs. Padres @ Petco Park

Last weekend we went down to San Diego to spend Easter with Andrew's family. I always love going down there, it's so nice to get away for a little bit and relax. Plus, I was in desperate need of vitamin D! I miss being able to leave the house in shorts and a t-shirt and not have to worry about getting cold.

Although it's so fun to see his family, our visits are always much too short. We had a brutal drive both ways, spending about 20 hours of our long weekend in the car. But we managed to make the most of our trip while we were there!

View from our seats :) 

One of my favorite activities was going to the Giants v. Padres game at Petco Park. This was my third time visiting Petco Park and it's always a good time. A family friend got us pretty great seats in the outfield, right behind my favorite, Hunter Pence.

We got to the game early to watch batting practice and hopefully get a ball. It wasn't our lucky day, but it was still so fun to see the players warming up. It was my first time arriving to a game so early, so I had a great time taking pictures and watching the players interact as they warmed up. Jeremy Affeldt is quite the character :) It was so fun being close to all the Giants players and watch them warm up. It made me excited to go to a game early when they're playing here at home! Maybe next time I'll be able to meet Pence...

It was a perfect evening for baseball, and although the Giants lost, it was still a fun night! We listened to the game on our drive home Sunday, and at least they got one win in this series!

PS...you can't really see in the picture of Andrew and I, but I was rocking my Pence jersey! I would guess nearly half the stadium was filled with Giants fans :)

  3. One of my favorite things to do when attending SDSU was go to Petco and cheer on the Giants. So many good/rowdy/blurry memories to be had there. I agree with you that about half the crowd is Giants fans!
