|World Series Gala|
The next day, Charlsy and I worked from home again before heading to Game 3 of the World Series at Wrigley Field. We sat in the fourth row of the bleachers and had a blast despite the Cubs losing the game.
The weekend continued with an airport run to pick up my mom for that night's Game 4, for which we had front-row bleacher seats. We took Victoria to her first Cubs game, which just happened to be the World Series. I was stressed about how it would go, but Victoria quickly made friends with everyone around us. She took peanuts from a nearby fan, accepted free giveaway gloves from another, and fed someone else a Goldfish cracker. My back was killing, though, for days from having to carry a toddler.
The next day, my mom, friend Rachael and I took Victoria to Brookfield Zoo's Boo at the Zoo event. I didn't take any photos in a mom and blogger fail. That night I went to Game 5 of the World Series with Rachael. This was finally the game the Cubs won. The people behind me were in tears as we sang the closing song. I was so emotional all game long. Go, Cubs, go!
On the way out, I signed the good luck wall at Wrigley Field.
I am in no way bragging. I simply cannot believe I was able to witness this in person. Again, it's not lost on me how lucky I was to be there.
