So...I love the Red Sox...when I see them or even hear a game in the background...I think Summer...I think of my grandparents going to the games...I think hometown pride.
Rob got us tickets to the Saturday afternoon game at Fenway vs. the Oakland A's. It was partially to celebrate our anniversary and partially to celebrate my birthday and it was an asbsolute BALL (no pun intended).
We started by dropping off "The Monk" to my parents (I laughed when my brother called me ten minutes later to tell me Dad didn't know how to make a grilled cheese and Mum wasn't home yet)...
When we drove into Fenway, it was the most amazing experience...tons of people walking to the field...it was like a sea of red...unbelievable...so awesome!
We checked in at The Hotel Commonwealth...dropped our bags down and then headed out for our jaunt to the field- SO EXCITED!
We took our loot and found our seats and the view was amazing...I kept getting more and more psyched and had 10 times more fun than I was even anticipating!
We chilled at the hotel for a bit and then headed out for some more fun. Our hotel had two fabulous restaurants attached to it so we didn't have to leave in the storm at all! We hit up the Island Creek Oyster Bar first. We sat at the bar and indulged in some exotic drinks. I had a few Oysters (from Mashpee) that were outstanding and we each had an oyster slider...so different and sooo sooo yummy!
