On Friday morning, we woke up early (hello, 3:30 AM!) and boarded a flight from Dallas to Boston to see our Red Sox play some baseball!
This was little Madeley’s first trip to Boston, and we were so excited to bring her along!! I asked the other two kids if they wanted to go and got these reactions:
Smith: Um, no. (Like it was the dumbest question ever.)
Ashby: Are there shows there? Like Anastasia? (Like on Broadway…). When I told her no, but there was other fun stuff, she was like “no thanks”.
What is wrong with those two Yankee kids?!?! #theirfather
So, it was just me, my biggest and my littlest (with my parents!). We had so much fun!!!
On the plane and ready to go!!
Happy faces when we landed in Boston 🙂 .
As soon as we got there, we checked into our hotel and then hit the ground running.
Our view from the hotel was nice, right?! I love you, Boston!
Off we went to explore some Boston before the night’s game.
My sweet mama 🙂 .
The city had this amazing energy because it was the weekend before the marathon! See! Everywhere you looked there were runners and other people wearing their Boston Strong and/or Boston Marathon shirts. It was so fun!
We had lunch at Joe’s 🙂 .
Lobster roll for me, please!
After that, we enjoyed the beautiful day. By the way, my top is HERE. It is this amazingly soft, fleece top that kept me so comfy during the flight and as we explored. It comes in many colors, but I liked the striped version.
Waking up at 3:30 got the best of Miss Madeley.
This girl saw the sign for Georgetown Cupcake and had to have one!
Who could blame her?!
She also lovvvvves chasing the birds and running around Boston Common. See her way over there…
…she was having the best day!
We love the shops on Charles Street! And Madeley is still napping 🙂 .
Everyone is up and happy!
Love these girls!
Around 5:30, my mom took the girls to dinner while my dad and I headed to the game.
I always have so much fun with my dad 🙂 .
Best place to be!
We always go by and see our brick 🙂 .
We had a-mazing seats!!
Before the game, they had a ceremony for the victims of the Boston bombing. I’ve never seen such an emotional ceremony before at a stadium. It was incredible to watch.
And that sums up our night. Bam. So much fun! #dirtywater
The next day, we woke up to cold weather, so before our afternoon game, we decided to keep warm inside. There was a mall connected to our hotel, so we slept late, enjoyed a Starbucks breakfast and milled around until 11:30 when it was time to head to Fenway.
Papa Jay loves his Sox girls!
…was having so much fun!
Back to Fenway with two of my girls!
Kensington was showing Madeley our brick…
This girl is getting SO BIG! I love, love, love spending time with her.
It was cold (it was 36!), but we stayed warm with yummy food!
This girl was so sweet! She just watched, danced and ate her way through 9 innings.
It was such a fun weekend!
I told Smith when we came home that next time, I’ll take them and we’ll see the Sox play the Yankees at Fenway. He said, “No, thanks”. Sigh. Those Yankee kids of mine!
I love this tradition with my dad (and girls!) so much 🙂 . xo
