Armed Forces Night for Seattle Mariners at Safeco Field

This past weekend my husband and I went to our first baseball game together. We went to see the Seattle Mariners play the Texas Rangers at Seattle's Safeco Field. They were doing a night to honor the Armed Forces and their families and JoJo and I thought it would be a good idea to check it out.
Now I cannot say I'm much of a baseball fan. At all. But my husband likes baseball (and by marriage, as well as birth, my allegiances lie with the Red Sox). I've been to baseball games before but only the Red Sox and only at Fenway Park with my dad and uncle. Here's a flash back to the 90's for you:

JoJo and I don't usually do too much on Saturdays, so it was nice to get out and have a little adventure. It was a typical Washingtonian rainy evening, but we bundled up and enjoyed it quite a bit! And of course, we brought Kidder Matthews along.
As part of our adventure we took a bus (as parking is silly priced and trying to park a giant truck in the city is also pretty silly). Washington has a relatively nice and clean bus system. The ride there was lovely. The way back it was the drunk crowd so that was a little less fun.

Safeco is relatively new (1999) so it is a pretty neat and modern ball field. We were so thankful for that roof with all the rain!

At the field we were sure to eat some nasty ball park food just to complete the experience. Nachos for me!

The Rangers ended up winning but...I don't so much care, honestly. It was nice to go and my husband was glad to check out the field for the future Red Sox games he will be seeing with our dads when the come out in July.
All in all, it was a great way to spend a Saturday night with my husband! Yay baseball!
