Last weekend we continued our One Summer, Six Ball Parks challenge with a 120 mile road trip to western Maryland to visit the third oldest minor league park, the Hagerstown Suns. This was our first time visiting that part of the state and it was just gorgeous. The ball park is located in Hagerstown, which is the heart of the Great Appalachian Valley.
Since Noah was beyond tired of being in the car during the last part of the drive there, we ended up stopping at the rest stop just 10 miles outside of Hagerstown. We were pleasantly surprised at the clean amenities, beautiful view, and spectacular playground. Road trips with kids would be a bit easier if all the rest stops along the way were so nice.
The hardest part about leaving the rest stop was trying to get the boys back into the car. They would have been content playing there all evening. Once we wrangled the two bulls back into their seats, we found dinner and then hit the ball park.

Once again we had great seats for less than forty bucks. Cheap seats at the hagerstown suns ball park gets you in the first row under the dug out!
We carried on the tradition of Cracker Jacks and also enjoyed some Hagerstown Suns ball park peanuts.
The boys enjoyed watching the Hagerstown Suns strike out again and again.
A good game of peek a boo is an easy cure for fifth inning boredom.
Despite a toddler who screamed during the entire two hour drive to Hagerstown, we had a great night. Unlike the rain delays we have experienced this summer at the Washington Nationals and Potomac Nationals, the weather was great and the field remained uncovered. More importantly both the boys slept the entire way home. Peaceful bliss.
