Wednesday night our family and another family (my son's best friend and his parents) went to watch the Pawtucket Red Sox play the Syracuse Chiefs (we lost 6-5) at McCoy Stadium.
And there were fireworks after the game. It's a four night event that runs, I think, the 2nd through the 5th. It was sold out on Wednesday, and we had free tickets, as that night's fireworks display was sponsored by Dave's Marketplace, and each store had 300 tickets to give away. Woo hoo!
They were general seating/bleachers tickets, and we should have gotten there earlier than we did - we ended up walking all over the place looking for 7 seats together or 3 and 4 together...no luck. So we ended up sitting on the bleachers out near right field. And that was probably for the best, as the kids could get down and run around a bit and work off some of their excess energy.
Yesterday I took the kids out to lunch and then shopping for new shoes for their fat little feet. Okay, not fat. Just, you know, always growing bigger, for some reason. Why is that?
Anyway, after finally finding sneakers that were acceptable and fit right, we headed to one more store before the promised trip to the carousel in the food court. (The carousel was my bribe for good behavior.)
We went in to this last store, and I waited while the sales clerk finished ringing up another customer. Then I spoke. "Um, my son is playing T-ball...and he needs a cup."
Alex had his first T-Ball practice this afternoon. Bill helped him get his gear together, and the two of them headed to the field while I stayed home with Julia and made dinner. It's cold and windy today, and we just didn't think Julia would be all that thrilled to sit on the bleachers for 45 minutes.
Anyway, I took a few pictures of Alex before he and Bill took off....
This morning, approximately 6:30, we were thus assembled: Bill, with coffee in his travel mug. Julia, clutching her pink elephant. Alex, and me, with coffee cup in hand as well. And we are all watching the Sox play Oakland in Japan. Interesting trying to explain to Alex that this game was actually taking place at… Continue reading Coffee and a Ball Game
We signed Alex up for T-ball this year - play starts in May. He needed a glove, so we went shopping for that this morning. His is the black and gray one on the bottome right. And if you look to the left of that, you'll see a very pink and purple glove, smaller. And you would be right in guessing that we got that for Julia - initially so she wouldn't feel left out.
