Updating the life list

July 6, 2011 · 0 comments

Last week Tonight I was able to cross something off my life list! (for those of you unfamiliar, think ‘bucket list’, but without the underlying dread).

We took the boys to Fenway in Boston to see the Red Sox play (thanks to the fabulous Patrick and his connections!). The stadium looks spectacular for being 99 years old. Beyond that, it was clean, the people were FRIENDLY, the field pristine (though so small in person!), and the Green Monster as big as imagined.

The item I was able to cross off the list {sidebar: I should probably post that one of these days.} was singing Sweet Caroline with the crowd at Fenway. It’s a fairly long-standing tradition in the middle of the 8th inning, and we almost didn’t get a chance to do it because of a rain delay one out from the end of the half-inning! Luckily the boys were able to hang for a while longer so we belted it out with (the slightly smaller) crowd.

The energy at the stadium was great; loud, excited, happy. A fabulous experience…even though the road to get there looked like our kids had built it with GeoTrax tracks and the ride back was dark and sleepy, I’d definitely go again.
