Sox at Rox - June, 2010

An important element of this trip to Denver was our annual baseball trip - this year we were in Denver to see the Red Sox play a series against the Colorado Rockies.  The whole family even attended the first of the three games.  Here we all are looking great in our Red Sox gear:

We were so happy that Alice LOVED her first real Red Sox game.  Here she is, engrossed in the action:
Alice even caught the eye of our section's usher and he gave her an actual baseball from that evening's batting practice!

The two girls were so cute in their Red Sox outfits. 
Here are Alice, Grandma and Papa checking out the stadium together:

Alice and Miranda were excited to meet Dinger, the Rockies' mascot, during the third inning.  Dinger autographed photos for each of the girls.  Miranda cutely mistook this purple dinosaur for her own personal favorite, Barney!  The Rockies' staff was kind and explained that Dinger is actually Barney's cousin!
Mommy and Daddy were SO EXCITED when the Red Sox avoided the sweep and won the third game in extra innings, rewarding Mommy and Daddy with their first win on the road.  They were starting to worry that they were bad luck!  It was an awesome win, a great game and a really fun series overall. 
Woo hoo!  Red Sox win!!!
Here is a link to the rest of the photos from the three games.
