Oracle Park, what used to be AT&T Park has a lot of memories for Amy and I. We met in 2010 during the first World Series Run and were both working in San Francisco at the time. And, we were just leaving San Francisco in 2012 during the second World Series Run on our way to Scottsdale, AZ. Barry Bonds, Matt Williams, The Freak Tim Lincecum, Buster Posey and the latest MadBum (Madison Bumgarner). It’s been quite a ride and Amy and I are so blessed to have lived just south of San Francisco for 2 of the 3 world series championships.
The First Holbrook House & Stacks
Six years earlier, we had left our home in San Mateo, CA. It was Amy’s and my first home and it was a good one. Small, but right on the water and surrounded by friends. But, about the time that Amy and I settled into our home and joined lives, our friends started to move away and Amy and I wanted to start a family. The house was amazing, but, not amazing for kids. Smaller, right on the water and no yard. Plus, I had promised Amy that when we had kids we’d move closer to her family. So we left to Scottsdale, AZ.
On the way from Grandma Holbrook’s house up to AT&T park, now Oracle Park, we stopped to play at our little old park and of course, took some obnoxious selfies in front of our old house. This was the first time Amy and Gage had been back here. And, it was the first time ever visiting for Claire. Really fun experience.
And, of course, we need to load up on food! Before going to eat more food at Oracle Park! So, we swung by an old favorite of ours in Burlingame, CA, Stacks! And, had some cousin fun with cousin Lily and Auntie Rosanna and Uncle Brian.
Buster Hugs & Memories
Getting back to see the Giants and Oracle Park (still struggle with calling it this) was awesome. We have such amazing memories of the Giants in 2010 & 2012. My son Gage was born in Burlingame in 2012 and was just a baby during the second championship run. So, getting back to this park was really fun. And the day we picked to go was absolutely perfect. There are not too many places in the world as beautiful as San Francisco on a nice day.
We did the usual things. Get to the seats, check! Get a lemon ice, check! Then wandered around to do all the fun touristy stuff. And, to top off this awesome day? A dual bobble head day! We got one of the coolest bobble head combos ever created. Buster Posey catching Brian Wilson for the final out of the 2010 World Series.
