change of plans

richie and nicole came to visit us in boston and we had decided to do some good old sight-seeing on saturday.  around 10 am we got to chatting and decided that we really needed to be at the red sox game.  they were playing the yankees, it's jeter's last season, and it's the last series of the year.  so.... we did some frantic searching for decent tickets online and scored seats a couple sections behind home plate by calling fenway directly.  it worked out great! it was impulsive, a bit of a splurge, and totally worth it.  so we gathered our stuff and headed into the city!

it was reported that jeter would sit out this game, but to our surprise he batted twice.  the whole stadium was chanting his name.  it was pretty cool.

it was an afternoon game and the weather was weirdly in the 80s.  it felt like july.  i love some sun.  we got lunch at the game and i was super grateful that fenway franks are gluten free (minus the bun of course) and jeremy just had to have a helmet of ice cream. 

the game was pretty amazing.  the red sox scored 8 runs in the 2nd inning and ended up beating the yankees 10-4.  there were some great hits.  it was so fun to share fenway with richie and nicole.  i love going to baseball games.  i'm glad we got to fit in a game this season.  it was a good one.

after the game, we showed them jeremy's school and saw part of the freedom trail.  at that point, we were exhausted, so we went on home to eat delicious food and chat the night away.  we love having visitors in boston!  who's next?!?
