Yeah Red Sox!!!!

I think a little piece of my heart will always live in New England. I lived for two years in Boston and over a year in Portland, Maine, and it is a rare day that I don't long for the New England coast. A person can't live in New England and not become a Red Sox fan. I think they must put something in the water. (Like when was Emilie ever a sports fan?) And it is so exciting that the Red Sox have won their second World Series in three years.

Unfortunately, I have yet to actually watch the Red Sox win. The first time they won in 2004 I had just moved to Pittsburgh and our TV hadn't arrived, and being new to the city we didn't even know where to go to watch the big game. Last night I have only fatigue to blame. Erik was away for the weekend so playing single parent wiped me out. I made it to the 7th inning at least, and had a good feeling they were going to win.

So congrats to all the Red Sox and how I wish I could join the party in Boston!!!!

P.S. Now it is time to cheer for the Patriots! Just don't tell anyone here. That is punishable by death in Steeler Country!

Cooper and Charlie at the Pumpkin Patch

Last week Cooper and I had a wonderful treat to spend a beautiful fall day at the pumpkin patch with our friends Charlie and Sara. The day was perfect, sunny and in the low 70s...amazing. I loved every minute of it, and had been begging my mom (who was here the previous week for a visit) and Erik to go pick out some pumpkins. No one wanted to join, so I think they missed out and we got to enjoy it all.

Cooper LOVED riding the tractor.

Coop posed for this picture with no prompting. I have NO idea!

This one looks good!

Did you know pumpkins make great seats?
