Jazz & Angels

It's not very often you get the VIP treatment for FREE.

This weekend we were lucky enough to go to a Jazz Festival/Dinner at the Hyatt in Newport Beach, CA & an Angels Baseball game in a suite.

My boss gave me the $95.00 (per person) tickets for Fridays dinner & show. I've never been to a jazz concert before, the band is the world famous, "Fourplay." They were awesome & it was a nice romantic evening under the stars.

Dinner on the Patio at the Hyatt, Newport Beach, CA

Our seats were great until the tallest couple in the world sat in front of us!!
Then today my sister-in-laws boyfriend has a suite at Angels Stadium, so another fun FREE day! After the game they invited all the kids under 12 to come down to the field & run the bases. My nephew wasn't too sure if he wanted to go down. So me, being me...grabbed his hand & said, "C'mon Daniel, you'll love it!"

I never want anyone to miss out on a fun opportunity so I often do this to my hubby & kids too... (they always have fun & thank me afterward).

He still was hesitant, but I had started to run...with him in tow, trying to get to the other side of the stadium in time.

Once we got in line, he was so excited & ready to go. Unfortunately I didn't have my good camera with me so I had to settle for my cell phone, not the best quality, but you get the picture.

My hubby & Daniel...yes I dragged him down with us!

Daniel in front of the dugout. Good thing they have people to clean up after them.
This NEVER would have been tolerated in a Little League dugout.

Elijah & Adam in the Suite

Adam in his new car...he drove us to the game, it was his 2nd time on the freeway, YIKES!
No, but he did good.

We had such an awesome weekend. I have to tell ya, date nights are a MUST for married couples. Be sure to take the time to hang out alone with your best friend at least 2x a month!
