So off we went to New Hampster this past weekend - gotta gotta gotta get that "muffin time" in while we're here! Thought we were only going up for Friday night but we ended up staying Friday and Saturday nights.
Friday night we went to a baseball game - minor league. The Fisher Cats (Double A for the Toronto Blue Jays) vs Portland Seadogs (Double A for our beloved Red Sox). As Bethie explained it was quite a dilemma who to cheer for - their home team (Fisher Cats) or OUR team the Red Sox. Bethie, of course, had a perfect solution ... her cheer was "GO TEAM" ... isn't our Bethalene brilliant!
As with the other major league stadium we've been to (Sioux Falls Canaries) these stadiums are outstanding, reasonably priced and very family friendly. What a great take for $10 - $12 per person!
Below is a Hilton Garden Inn that is built at one end of the stadium - with , of course, outside dining - what a great take that would be sometime. Brilliant concept huh!
Above is a photo of our Muffin - trying bananas for the first time. For some reason she is not happy with the spoon - the bananas were alright in her book - the spoon, well not so much! I suggested perhaps if she could hold and play with the spoon it may help ... some success was gained by that I think (???). Pat and Beth tried rice cereal with Paige a week or so ago - with NO success. Apparently Paige wanted NO, absolutely NO part of that cereal. Saturday she did consent to eat some cereal if it was mixed with lots and lots of bananas. How precious is our Paigie Pie, Muffin face Princess!
And below is Ms Muffin drinking from a Paige cup that my friend Candy sent up to her.... not bad for a first attempt.
So at the moment we are still in Middleboro but will definitely be leaving here Friday. Our plan, at the moment, is the head to the Great Lakes - and seeing our friends Larry and Sheila (my daughter in law's parents) in Michigan. After that we will be headed to our winter stay in the Florida Keys - perhaps via Louisiana to have the bedroom television replaced with a digital so we can once again have a full time functioning TV in there. Oh horrors - television withdrawal .... UGH!!! She says so facetiously .... I prefer a book - then again, as Rick is quick to point out, I can't read in bed for more than about 15 minutes before I am snoring and drooling!! yeah yeah yeah ...
So in a few days, we'll be on the road again (darn I wish I could figure out how to put music on this blog!!). Seems like it's been quite a while since we've been traveling, really traveling ....
