Take Me Out to the Ball Game!

After the Phillies' amazing season and championship last year, we really wanted to see them in person. In December I bought four tickets at a pro-life fundraiser. When we arrived at Citizen's Bank Park on August 6, we were thrilled by our seats in a suite, where we had fine views from the third base line, and tasty food to munch on.
As it turned out, our recently acquired pitcher Cliff Lee was pitching his first home game.

It was a thrill to see Brad Lidge pitch the last two innings, and strike out several Colorado Rockies.
The Phillies won!!

We all Scream for Ice Cream!

Our house at the beach was very conveniently located two blocks from an ice cream store. During the long winter, Fred would daydream about sunny days on vacation, and trips to A La Mode for ice cream cones and sundaes. The first day of our vacation, Fred arrived at the ice cream shop right after they opened!

Fred proudly and patriotically devours the "Yankee Doodle Split", containing lots of fruit- bananas, strawberries, and blueberries! Who would have thought that a sundae could be so healthy?

Look Mom, I ate the whole thing!
