It is pretty sad that is always takes me till the end of the year mad dash to do my family video to get all my photos from the year organized and edited. I still have vacation files untouched. But I really did spend my Autumn doing photos for other people so I was extra behind this year. I am also trying to sort out my very favorite photos from 2012 to put in a coffee table photo book for myself. This one ranks right up there at the top...
Martin and I took Ben, our nephew, to see the Boston Red Sox play over Memorial Weekend. It was also Ben's 9th birthday. We had it on the scoreboard for him. It was just one of the best trips. Everything fell right into place AND the Red Sox won that night with a walk off home run. Maybe the only game they won this year??? Horrible season but for Ben it was an awesome night. Walking back to the hotel from Fenway the Boston Celtics game finished too, a championship win and Boston was on fire. I think that memory will stay with Ben for a lifetime. And for me and Uncle Martin as well.
In the photo Martin has just snatched Ben up for the big finish.
And since Fenway was celebrating the 100 year anniversary I love that Ben's hat shows it off. This one is going to be framed.
For those that don't already know those are the lyrics from "Sweet Caroline", a Fenway tradition. Martin with our Boston buddy Chris.
