A Beautiful Day for a Ball Game

Last night Felix officially became an American by participating in one of our great national pastimes: a trip to the ballpark. You're thinking: There's pro baseball in Vermont? Yup. Burlington is home to the Single A Vermont Lake Monsters, farm team for the Washington Nationals (no idea why they're not just called the Nationals). So we, along with Sean, Michelle, and visiting uncle James ventured out to Centennial Field for some Tuesday night action as the Monsters took on the Brooklyn Cyclones on a beautiful, if not pretty sweltering, July evening. Felix cheered hard for the home team, who after a strong start and running up a 3-0 lead through most of the game, gave up a quartet of runs in the seventh (we were gone by then) and dropped the game 4-3. We'll get em' next time.
