Shipping Off to Boston

Brendan's trip to Boston was nothing short of AMAZING - especially for a ten year old who eats, sleeps and breathes baseball!

The guys left Friday morning and had a direct flight from Charlotte to Boston.

On the jet bridge - that's a great feeling as you are leaving for a trip!

Once in Boston, they all had to cram into the backseat of a cab! I had flashbacks to Russia!!!

And this is the view from their hotel room...Fenway right across the street!

The boys enjoy a Fenway Frank for dinner at the Friday night game.

Brendan mostly received money from family for his birthday so that he could buy some new gear in Boston.

B and D relax while watching baseball..."America's Favorite Pastime"!

Before both games, the boys had a great time walking around outside the stadium just taking in the whole experience of a home Red Sox game.

In the blink of an eye, their birthday trip was over, and it was time to head home to the Moms for Mother's Day (and D's birthday on Sunday).

We were happy to have them back home with us!

Very cool trip! We went to a game at Fenway around July 4th one year. Our seats were between home plate and the dugout and with the way Fenway is built, there was absolutely no air circulation. We left in the 5th inning we were so miserable! Great experience though!
