Take Me Out to the Bronx

Henry and I attended our first New York Yankees game in the Bronx tonight with friends, Colm and Eamonn.

I’ve got to be honest that I always thought if Henry were to express interest in baseball, I’d try to steer him towards Mets fandom since Yankees fans tend to be more arrogant and entitled. But Henry loved the atmosphere and had a great time so it looks like we could have a little Yankees fan here.

Colm and Eamonn, Minnesota natives and casual Twins fans, took it in stride when Alex Rodriguez hit a grand slam homerun in the seventh inning to give the Yankees the lead and eventual 8-4 win. Many thanks to Colm who organized and provided tickets.

Botanical Garden Holiday Train Show ’14

Today, we were able to attend the NY Botanic Garden Holiday Train Show in the Bronx. Henry was excited to see the many trains roll around the intricately made replicas of New York area landmarks.
