The Day in Pictures

July 9, 2008
Aidan’s First Game at Fenway
Sox win 18-5 (um, we leave when it’s 6-4…the fan in me goes crazy, the father in me, oh well!)

This is pre-hot dog and after a long car/subway ride. Not particularly well posed, but there nonetheless!

In our seats. It was hot. No, make that HOT. Look at the sweat on his face. But, he’s had a hot dog by this point, so we’re in a little better mood.

Red Sox honored the armed services before the game. Pretty awesome flag, eh?

Not only were the seats fabulous, but they were within a minute walk to bathroom, ice cream, hot dogs and water. Couldn’t ask for anything better.

Before meeting Wally the Green Monster, Aidan got to meet Righty…

…and of course, Lefty. Notice how sweaty Aidan is. Did I mention it was HOT?

First, he asked Wally for his autograph (and said thank you!)….

…then he had his picture taken with Wally (who must have been dying in the suit).

And, finally, after a Fenway Frank, an ice cream, a lemonade, three waters, blue cotton candy, meeting three furry creatures and five innings of baseball at Fenway Park, we enjoy a ride aboard the T back to our car.

A great day.

    Yay for baseball games! Some of my favorite memories with my dad involve baseball games. Good to get him started on the baseball stadium tour early, huh?

    I love it. Not the red sox that is, but these pictures. And you and your sweet Aiden. These are the sort of things that make my ovaries hurt and want babies!

    so for the sake of my lady bits, please post stories about how they don’t sleep, and how they are just nasty little creatures and we should all wait to start having them.
