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.

Nice Day in the Neighborhood

Another freezing day in New York meant we were not able to do too much. Ona got a haircut and the two of us were able to have a nice lunch together while Mark watched Henry. We all spent a bit of time at Barnes and Noble so Henry could roam and read and then I made dinner. Nothing to write home about, but nice to be together for the day.
