Mike, Preston and the Cubbies

10-28b-16-3
We were all pretty excited when the Chicago Cubs made it to the World Series this year! Since they just won the whole thing in the most stressful game ever last night, it seemed the perfect timing to post about Mike and Preston's trip to Chicago to see game 3 at Wrigley Field.
The boys had the amazing opportunity to go to the first World Series game at Wrigley in 71 years. I must admit I was pretty darn jealous :-), but also so excited for them to have this fun trip together. We weren't sure how into it all Preston would be but he was SOOO genuinely excited not only to go on this special trip with his dad, but to go to the baseball game as well. He could hardly contain himself!
Mike picked Preston up from school early the afternoon of the 27th to fly to Chicago and they had the next day in the city to eat pizza and shop for Cubs gear for the family before they headed to the stadium nice and early. It was a great game, even though Cubs ultimately lost the one they were at, and then they flew back home on Saturday. So a quick trip, but amazing and exhausting at the same time.
Ever since the game Preston has been SO into the rest of the series! He wore his Cubs hat non stop, wanted to watch all the rest of the games on TV and when we would make him go to bed (always before they were over since it was late and he had school the next day), he would be cheering for them in the dark of his room.
It has been so fun to see him so excited about it all...and THEY WON! 108 years later, and the boys got to see them play. Such a special memory!
