Military Appreciaton Night at The River Bandits

The River Bandits is a Single A farm team for the St. Louis Cardinals (GO CARDS) here in the Quad Cities. We were honored when they hosted Military Appreciation Night and gave all active duty military families the opportunity to get free tickets. It got even better when Gigi and Greta were invited to start off the game by leading the crowd with The Pledge of Allegiance.
Gigi and Greta were quite nervous to stand in front of the huge crowd but their friends who came with us, who are also military kids, got to join them. I had to laugh when the microphone was handed to Greta and she refused to take it. She accidentally says The Girl Scout Promise when she starts off saying the Pledge and she didn't want to make that mistake! The night was a hit and the girls had a fabulous time watching the game and playing in the bounce area.
