Today was Build-a-Bear day at Busch Stadium, so of course we were there. This year’s stuffed friend was a Clydesdale, which was very exciting, especially to our resident horse fanatic, Ladybug!
Today was also Fredbird’s birthday, which meant that some of his mascot friends from St. Louis and Major League Baseball were there to help him celebrate. This is a really fun thing they’ve been doing for the last few years!
I enjoyed the view from our seats, even if we weren’t on the right side of the stadium to see the Arch and Ballpark Village.
We got to see John Lackey pitch his first game as a Cardinal:
And get his first win as a Cardinal, too!
Any day we spend at Busch Stadium is a fun day, but it’s especially fun when that day is everyone’s favorite mascot’s birthday!
