My trip to Fenway

I thought it was time to write it up and show some pics. As most know by now, we took our son to Fenway for his 12th birthday. I must say the city is pretty cool. Everyone is pretty friendly, unless you are in a car. They are impatient and like their horns in Boston. Good thing we walked or took the T everywhere. The unfortunate part was that it rained for the last three days of a four day trip. Thankfully being from Seattle and being used to it, it was bearable. My only worry was getting the game in on Monday. If it was rained out, it would have been a wasted trip. It rained until about an hour before game time, and only for about ten minutes during the 7th inning. If you ever get the chance to go to Boston, make sure to get to Fenway and catch a Sox game. The fans are great, they are polite, and they know the game. Thanks for the great experience Boston!!

The old facade of the park still stands to this day

The world famous Green Monstah!

I don't think truer words could be spoken...

The wall to commemorate the World Series titles

The tarp's coming off, time for baseball in Boston!

Play ball! First batter of the game, Ichiro


  1. Glad the weather let up for you and nice shot of the tarp. Who knew it would be yellow? Funny that it doesn't appear anywhere else in Fenway but the foul poles.

  2. Nice trip. Great pics.

    I'm so jealous. I've got to get to Boston one of these days.

  3. The third row up from where your son was standing behind the dugout is where I sat to watch a game at Fenway when I was 16. It was a great time.

  4. Nice photos. The old facade is beautiful isn't it? I'm jealous. I need to go to a MLB game at some point. Fenway would be a great place to catch a game.
