Last Thursday, we made our annual trek to Boston to see the Red Sox play! This time, I decided to bring Kensington along too. She anticipated our Boston trip more than any other vacation. She told everyone she knew that she was going to Boston with her mom (and Lovie and Papa Jay)…she was excited! Andrew and Smith went camping and fishing at his parents’ house, so everyone set off for an adventure!
And before I get a lot of comments about it…yes, we live in Texas and no, we are not Rangers fans. We have been Red Sox fans for years and years…it is in our blood. I watch all of the Sox games on TV (thanks to Direct TV’s MLB package!) and live and breathe baseball season. And yes, it is very unfortunate that I married a Yankee…but we all have our crosses to bear…
We flew out of Dallas at 6:00 am on Thursday morning and arrived in Boston about 11:00. It was a little rainy but that didn’t stop us from having fun!
First stop, lobster rolls!!
This girl loves jumping in puddles!
I bought her a Red Sox bear. It was true love.
Going on the subway is so much fun!
My mom bought me this cute scarf at that Lou Lou store I’m standing in front of. I love a scarf!!
After a day of shopping, we got dressed in our hotel for the game. Kensington’s first Red Sox game!!
Our first stop at Fenway Park, visiting my dad’s brick.
The three of us at the brick.
We ate Fenway Franks and cotton candy :).
I love my dad!
During the Star Spangled Banner, I looked down and she had her hand over her heart and was singing. Bless her sweet heart!
The Red Sox mascot Wally came over and said hi. This made her day!
A little chilly but nothing we couldn’t handle thanks to our new Red Sox blanket (and she’s wearing my pink lipstick in this picture…).
Kensington fell asleep in the bottom of the 9th, so Papa Jay carried her back to the subway and hotel.
Sound asleep on the subway.
The next day, we set out for some more fun!
In front of the John Harvard statue. I kept telling Kensington that’s where she’ll be going to school. Hopefully she’ll get a full ride… 😉
It wasn’t raining, but she loved her umbrella…a girl can’t have too many accessories.
Looking inside the Harvard Law School library. All the smart people were in there studying…
Lunch at one of our favorite places, John Harvard’s!
Lovie loves Kensington.
Love my girl!
Papa Jay loves Kensington too!
Friday night, just dad and I went to the game while the other girls stayed back. We had so much fun!
I look forward to my Boston trip every year. I love spending this time with my dad. Baseball is our thing. I love that we can share it together.
