Father’s Day at Citi Field With The Mets

My husband Bob is an amazing father.  He is also a master pancake maker, supreme bedtime story-teller and exceptional My Little Pony illustrator.  We were all excited to celebrate him on Father’s Day at Citi Field when the New York Mets hosted the Chicago Cubs.  It was my family’s first trip to Citi Field and my children’s first baseball game.

I loved  watching my husband explain the game to our children, and it was exciting for all when the Mets won with a home run in the 9th inning!  We ended our time at Citi Field with the Mr. Met Dash – the kids were so excited to run the bases.  Adrian got a bit off track, but returned with a huge smile after being redirected.  It was surely an experience to remember.

My family received tickets and parking as part of the Mets Blogger Program.  All opinions in the post are my own. 



  1. Monica these are amazing photos. I especially love the picture of the kids taking off on their run around the bases. And the side photos of Daddy with the kids is going to always remind you of that special day. What a fun Father's Day. And you've got such a handsome family!

    • Thanks so much Leslie. This was definitely a memory that I wanted to document. It really was a great Father's Day and my husband was so happy! The kids are still talking about it too.

  2. How fun that they got to run the bases!! I see Pablo made the trip too (we love Pablo in our house). 😉

    THAT was a good Father's Day trip. 🙂

    • The Mr. Met Dash was incredibly cool – especially since it was my kids first game! And yes – Pablo and Uniqua ran the bases too! Hope you had a great Father's Day as well!

  3. What a nice experience for your family. Your husband sounds like a terrific guy and you have a beautiful family.

  4. Beautiful family and it looks like so much fun. I would love to take my son to a game as I think he would love it. He just recently started to set up bases in our yard and play baseball. He is only 5 so it is fun to see as the rules change by the second.

  5. How fun! And what great photos!

  6. The photos are exquisite. Your new website showcases your photography so well. Lovely.
