Life got in the way

It has been crazy busy since my Birthday.  My husband surprised me by taking me to a Red Sox Game.  I love visiting Fenway Park.  I have gone to many games and I never lose the excitement I feel about going to another.  I haven't been the last few years because I give up my ticket to one of the boys but this one was just for me because it was an afternoon game.  We had a blast (except for the intoxicated idiots who spilt beer all over me.)  I will never understand the over indulgence of alcohol that some men partake in at sporting events.  The joke with my husband and I is to stage the drunkiness.  Stage 1 -2 beers lots of laughing, Stage 2 -4 beers Really loud and obnoxious Stage 3 6-8 beers F bombs flying and coach and player degradation, Stage 4 (my personal favorite) 8+ beers kicked out by security.







My boys surprised me with an ice cream cake from Dairy Queen.   It was quite delicious and so thoughtful of them.  They had to bribe their grandfather to drive them over to DQ to pick it up in order to have it for me when I got home.


My Birthday bouquet.  Beautfiul white snapdragons.  A personal summertime favorite.

We have had a tight schedule with baseball for the little leaguers, award ceremonies for the older children, Confirmation for my oldest son, etc . . .  So we decided last Sunday to go for a beautifully relaxing bike ride.  This trail is a personal favorite along the coast of Falmouth MA.  I love the beach and always feel recharged.
This was once a railway that was converted to a bike trail.  It is appoximately 10miles round trip.  The name of the path is the Seaway.  If you ever visit Cape Cod be sure to rent some bikes and travel to one of these destinations.  It is sooooo worth the trip! 

The view

Fragrant Sea Roses line the entire patch and smell wonderful


The path--- long and flat
As far as stitchy news,  I finished Gingerbread Village by LHN, worked on Keys to the Kingdom, worked on Kitty Quilts.   I will post progress pics over the weekend providing I squeeze out a corner of time.  Happy Friday Everyone and Happy Stitching!!

Happy Birthday.
I could never figured out who could afford to get drunk at sporting events, they charge so much you would need to take out a loan.
Love your bike trail.
Can't wait to see what you have been stitching.

What a wonderful birthday you had, Nataly! My youngest son was just at a game at Fenway a week ago with his girlfriend who is from the Boston area--he just loved it (and the Red Sox actually won--something the Pittsburgh Pirates rarely do!!).

Oh, your photos of the bike paths along Cape Cod brought back such wonderful memories... That was the last vacation my husband and I took pre-kids and I well remember biking all over the island. That was almost 30 years ago--time to go back, I'd say...

Wishing you a wonderful year ahead (sounds like it will definitely be a busy one!)...

Sounds like the perfect birthday! I am a huge Red Sox fan. Last trip to Fenway was in 2009 with my daughter. Total blast. Our local LNS is planning the stitching retreat in 2013 at the Lighthouse Inn in W. Dennis. Cannot Wait !!
