the rainout

For the first time in 5 years, we went to a Cubs game that was rained out.  We had a blast even though they didn’t play.  Matt and I got up early and headed down to Wrigley Field while the kids stayed with Matt’s parents.  We had time to walk around the park and watch the planes fly over while practicing for the Chicago Air and Water Show.  Then we sat and relaxed at the Captain Morgan Club until the Stadium Club opened.  Then, we headed upstairs for an amazing brunch…  this is a once-a-year or so thing, so when we get to do it, we enjoy it.

Then we headed down to our seats, watched all the pre-game hoopla with the National Anthem being capped off with an Air Force flyover… pretty cool. 

Then, it rained…  a lot.

We finally went back upstairs and just hung out for a while. 

Back to the seats. 

Waiting, waiting, waiting… no rain…

Rain again.

Finally at just over 3 hours, I looked at Matt and declared defeat.  So we left.  By the time we got to the car, they had called the game.  So, we beat the rush out of the stadium.

At least we had time together with great food and drinks and just got to talk and laugh.  Sad there was no game to watch, but glad for our time together.

Quite the day to say the least!
