Boston Trip Part 4

Okay, FINALLY, the last recap of my Boston trip. It only took me a month to do this. One of these days I'll get back into the groove of blogging.

The last full day of my trip started with a road trip to Newport, Rhode Island to tour some of the Newport Mansions. I was excited to cross another state off my list! :) I have to say, Newport was a beautiful town. I want to go back when I can spend more time there. We only had time to tour two of the mansions, but they were beautiful!

Road trip!

The Breakers Mansion
The Marble House. This was actually built to be a "summer cottage". 
Taking pictures along the cliffs. We are risk takers!
But we got good pictures!
Lunch at the Black Pearl
Walking around the docks.
We had to leave Newport by early afternoon in order to get back to Boston in time for the Red Sox/Rangers game. Sadly the game did not go that well for the Rangers, but I still had fun seeing a game at Fenway. 
Riding the bus to the game

Nelson Cruz hit a home run during the game and I came so close to catching it. Well, it bounced off the wall behind me, you could see me on the highlight trying to get the ball. It landed three rows in front of me and some Red Sox fan got it. The guy was being told to throw it back (most fans throw back home run balls from the opposing team). He saw me wearing my Rangers shirt and offered to give me the ball. So, despite a terrible loss, I got a Rangers home run ball. :)

I need to get this autographed!
I was giddy. :)
Knowing that I needed something to lift my spirits, the Rangers put Craig Gentry into the game to cheer me up. :)

I see you there Craig.
So, my Boston trip was a blast. I cannot wait to go back. Jodi's sweet aunt gave me a ride to the airport that Wednesday (Jodi had to work). I found an NCIS marathon to watch on the flight back. Seriously, I'm really liking Jet Blue airlines!! :)

I love Gibbs!
I had to laugh when I landed because I had 61 notifications on Facebook. I've never had that many in a span of four hours before. Oh yeah, and check out the status I had when I checked in at the Boston airport. True story, guess I look suspicious! :)

Sorry this recap took so long, I hope to return to my normal blogging soon!!



  1. Looks like such a wonderful time! I have never been there.

  2. FINALLY!!!!! LOL!! You are welcome back anytime. I hope to make it back to Dallas for a Red Sox game next season. We shall see.

    We also need to plan a trip - Nashville?!

    I am having a hard time w/ blogging right now. Summer is so busy w/ doing fun things outside. I just don't want to be in front of the computer.

  3. You look like a lot of fun on trips. Next trip you take, I' coming ;)

  4. Yeah, I think I could live in Rhode Island... :)
