A spontaneous night at the ballpark.

Yesterday afternoon I got a text from Josh asking if I’d like to go to the Yankees/Angels game. The NYC USO (which rocks!) was giving away free tickets and Josh was going to take his lunch break to run to midtown and pick them up. Of course I said absolutely – it’s on our NYC bucket list! The boys were so excited when I told them we were going. They’ve both been going to baseball games since they were babies and they love it. Plus Theo is a self proclaimed Yankees fan. He tells everyone his favorite team is the Yankees and wears his Rivera shirt twice a week. Tonight after the game I asked him why he likes the Yankees now and he said, “Well, you know, I got this shirt and I just really think their logo is pretty cool…And I was born in New York!” Valid.  photo IMG_6119_zps7d714b7f.jpg

We took the train all the way from downtown Manhattan to the Bronx on what was honestly the train.from.hell. The 40 minute ride made me believe that we were all being punished for doing something terribly wrong. It was like a version of Jean-Paul Sartre’s No Exit. But once we got to Yankee Stadium the rest of the night was fantastic! The weather was absolutely perfect, the boys loved the game and we got to see Alfonso Soriano hit two homers while Ruby was an angel and danced and ate stadium food.  The train ride back to lower Manhattan was nice and clean and easy and there was no traffic on the drive home.

It was such a great night out with the family! Thanks again to the New York USO for making it happen!
