Once upon a time two boys went to the old ball game. We had giant snow cones that were bubblegum flavor and were great. After that we had hot dogs. They were really good. We drank water to go with the hot dogs. Then we had popcorn. And then DippinDots ice cream treats. We saw a lot of our friends from Southside T-ball. We also saw real baseball players. It was amazing! Then we went home. The end.
