No, this is not a post about the breakfast bread that everyone loves.  It's about a different kind of biscuit.  A ball team.  Our hometown has a minor league ball team called the Biscuits.  At first, it seemed crazy to name a team after a food that is so popular in the south but after a while it has really become quite catch-y (pun intended). 

See the cute little biscuit logo...that's Monty, the biscuit.  I don't believe that I've ever seen another biscuit with eyes and hands before.  Anyway, PB got us tickets to go a game a few weeks back and we were so happy because it was Family Fun night.  That meant the kids would get to run the bases after the game was over.

                                                                             Ready to head inside the stadium!

One of the kids favorite things to do at Riverwalk Stadium is to play at Big Mo's Dugout.  Big Mo is the team mascot.  He's kind of like a biscuit-loving anteater looking creature.  He has this cool playground area at the end of the third baseline that is just for kids!  Our girl and boy love to play here.

They also love the inflatables.  You can purchase a wristband for $5.00 and have fun up until the end of the 7th inning. 

                                                                     PB is the #1 Biscuit fan! 
After the kids played at Big Mo's Dugout for a while, we headed to our seats.  PB's dad was joining us to watch the game.  Now we are ready for some Biscuits Baseball action!

                                                             Enjoying their pre-game snacks!
                                                                      Papa and PB!  

Our seats were pretty great.  They were right behind homeplate!  We saw lots of scouts sitting around us checking out the pitchers for both teams. 

After the game was over the kids lined up to run the bases.  It was pretty exciting for them both.

                                                Big Mo met all the kids at homeplate for a High-5!

                                                 Everyone got a cool drink after running the bases! 

Even though our kids don't play baseball or softball any more they are still fans of the game and they think it's pretty cool to get to go out onto the field.   I think PB was a little disappointed that he didn't get to run the bases, too.  He's the real baseball fan in the family!   :)  It was a great night of Biscuit Baseball fun!  Go Biscuits!
