A Perfect Day for a Parade!

Today, on a beautiful October morning, I drove to the Malvern train station hoping to board and meet up with our dear friends Jerry and Nicki. There were Phillies fans swarming everywhere, and not enough trains to accommodate us all. We ended up driving to the airport and taking that train into the city, after a mad dash to the mobbed train.
Nicki and I had curbside seats with a tree for a backrest as we waited for the parade.

We wildly cheered the Phillies as they were driven by!! The majority of fans lining the parade route weren't even born the only other time the Phillies were world champions, in 1980.
Very loyal fans Jerry, Nicki, and Chris savoring the great conclusion of the 2008 season! Chris displayed his devotion by driving up from Birmingham, Alabama yesterday, to attend the parade.
It was very exciting to see the players, who thanked the fans for their support at the ceremony in the ball park.
We really appreciate a championship in Philadelphia- we have to live in the present moment!

What a fun celebration! I remember being 11 or 12 when they won last time - I still have my diary - I wrote about the Phillies every day. Enjoy this time of joy!!!!!

oh how fun! I know my parents are going to devour your pictures and commentary...they've been incredibly loyal followers since game one this season! They helped us all catch the spirit early on!
I'm so glad you got to attend the parade...that train station pictures is amazing! I doubt the little Malvern station has ever had that many people!!!
