About this blog: I'm a wife, stay-at-home mom, home cook, marathon runner, and PhD. I recently moved to the Silicon Valley after completing my PhD in Social Psychology and becoming a mother one month apart. Before that, I ran seven marathons including Chicago and Boston. Exercise is an integral part of my life. I hope to one day go back to long distance running and tackle the New York City Marathon. Right now I run after my one year old son. Although I am a stay-at-home mom, we are rarely "at home." My mom also stayed at home with my brother and me. She warned me that, although rewarding, it can be isolating. So, with her help, I learned the importance of getting out into the community and meeting other mothers. On the rare occasion when I am at home and have a hand or two free, I squeeze in time to scrapbook. As a new mom, many challenges are thrown my way. I hope my opinions, triumphs, and struggles help experienced parents reminisce, new parents cope, and parents-to-be get an honest glimpse of what the first years of motherhood can entail. (Hide)

Over the weekend our family watched the NCAA championship. Our son was excited to see Stanford score goals (especially after watching them play an entire game with no goals a few weeks ago).
We've watched a variety of local sporting events with our kids - water polo, baseball, football, etc. Our son wishes all of the games could have trains zooming by in the background like the football field at Paly.
When our son was a baby he enjoyed staring at stadium lights. Now he is picking up on the players' skills. Our daughter is also gaining interest and is starting to clap along with the cheering fans. Although our kids can't always sit through an entire game, it is definitely a family outing that I hope to continue in the years to come.
What are your favorite local sporting events to take your kids to?
