I should be the world’s last person to speak of baseball, but I am, because that’s what we’re doing with the kiddos tonight.
Babe Ruth set a home run record of 60 home runs in 1927 on this very day in history–not to be broken until Roger Maris in 1961, then Mark Mcgwire in 98, and Barry Bonds in 01.
Interesting fact – On this SAME day in history in 1934, Babe was mad that he wasn’t named Yankees manager, did his last game, and quit. He had played for the Yankees for 15 years.
Curious to see what the kids think of that decision. Family Fun has some awesome baseball cupcakes that the kids can make with you. We’ve done it before and the kids had a blast with it.
So, restaurants — my kids hardly ever get to go to a restaurant because we’re so frugal (and my husband is an amazing cook) but on the occassion we do it’s a HUGE treat. So today, and today only, check out Restaurant.com check out the restaurants in your area and get gift certificates for 25 dollars. At checkout enter the code WOW and you’ll get it for just a dollar! Cheapest price for the entire year. Read the small print. Most certificates require you spend 35 dollars, but if you look at the menu and plan it, you can leave only spending 11 dollars (counting gift certificate price).
I get no kickback on this deal – it’s just another way for families to find something celebratory on an ordinary day!
